Does the Ohio Board of nursing issue/renew licenses of nurses who have misdemeanor, or felony convictions?? I recently read the dicipline portion onthe website and saw a lot of nurses convicted of misdemeanor and felonies.

In most states, this is handled on a case-by-case basis. Looking at the second section of the document above, it seems like the board is concerned about felonies, misdemeanors committed in the course of nursing practice, and misdemeanors involving drugs or issues of moral turpitude. It says that investigations are conducted in those situations, but doesn't list hard-and-fast rules for them.
