Misdemeanor paraphernalia

I’m a RN in TN who recently had a Class D misdemeanor for paraphernalia in another state. This was reduced by the way from a misdemeanor for possession of marijuana. I was searched on my way back from Colorado and they found 2 containers of high CBD/low THC edibles which I was bringing back for my mom who has advanced parkinsons. My questions are: do I need to notify the Board of Nursing, how severely will this impact my licensure, and what steps should I take to lessen any penalties that might be imposed upon me? Also, should I notify my employer prior to receiving any feedback from the board?

I did not have a criminal record prior to this and my license is currently in good standing. Do I need to be concerned that I may lose my hospital job? I do not use marijuana and I’m in good standing with my employer.

Thanks for your help!

Where you searched during a traffic stop? I have mixed feelings about what you should do, although I would consult an attorney ASAP.

This, particularly one familiar with nursing licensure. www.taana.org is a good resource to find a lawyer familiar with working with the BON.
