arrested for domestic battery misdemeanot twelve years ago. took court diversion program. record sealed and adjuciation withheld.. applying for expungement and haven't gotten in trouble since.. have been a massage therapist with no problem for fifteen years.. nursing is all i've ever wanted to do.. completed a bachelors in health care administration dont want to be in business field, want to be a caretaker. anybody out there who was licensed with a domestic battery charge... the whole incident was sooooo stupid... it wasnt even my intention to hurt him i was trying to get him off my bike and we were fighting over it and he scraped his knee. someone called police bcuz it was in a parking lot. i cannot believe this incident will deter me from doing what i know i would love

questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:

  • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history and if so, can i get a job?
  • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a mip, dui, or other related charges?
  • what happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
  • can i go to nursing school and/or be licensed/be employed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
  • will i be able to go to nursing school and/or attend clinicals with a criminal record?
  • what can happen if i receive a mip/dui/dwi or other charge while still in school?

these are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. the only reliable source of information is your state board of nursing.

if you are currently licensed as a nurse and have been charged with or convicted of a felony or misdemeanor including dui/dwi or any criminal offense, you need to contact the bon in every state you hold a license/wish to be licensed and ask their reporting requirements.

if you are a nursing student or are interested in becoming a nurse you need to contact your bon and/or your school of nursing directly. you need to be completely candid with them as to the nature and disposition of the crimes. each board of nursing makes a determination on a case by case basis and some are willing to issue a declarative statement in advance.
