    Juvenile records are sealed and are not accessible from my understanding.

    This is a question to be answered by the BRN since they are the one's granting the license.

    Each case is handled as an individual issue.

    And for medical fields, military, criminal justice type jobs, they will ask and be allowed to see and hold against you anything committed as a juvenile. Do not fail to report these crimes!

    im sure everyone knows by now that each case is handeled on an indivisual basis.. all she is asking for is if anyone has gone through the same thing.. me having a criminal history going through california.. the board takes forever!!to give yu any answers i passed the nclex way in december 2009 and yet they have been slow and just recently requested additional paperwork!! my analyst is very slow rude and f.o.s. if you dont have a criminal history and have all the extra anxiety outside of waiting 6 weeks for your results from the enforcement unit then you should have nothing to say in regards to anyone with a criminal history. all this thread is asking if there is anyone out there that has been denied or approved..like i said im sure she already knows cases are handled on an indivisual basis!

    thanx cali nurse but are u saying u can take the nclex but still not be approved for a license.. i just got the letter today saying that they recieved my application/test registration...and it says the next step is waiting for the att, my teacher told me that if i get the att that means im approved to get my license.. is that true? or is it to seperate processes (the nclex & license applications)? do u work yet.. i mean have ur license?

    I was approved. I was charged with three felonies in 2007...they were later dropped and I was convicted of two misdemeanors instead. I just had to wait a few extra weeks for the board to approve my criminal explanation. I was scared to death during the whole process but looking back the wait wasnt that bad.

    hi, im sure you have heard and read this many times......each case is evaluated by your individual board of nursing. i am speaking from experience, i was just recently approved to sit for my nclex which i took on friday the 19th, got my results today and passed!! i was very worried that i would not be approved to sit and test. i had battery and d.u.i. my criminal history is from 1996-2001. this was a time when i had quite a drinking problem. i have not had any arrests since the 2001 d.u.i. i had to prove my case to the board of nursing that i had changed. i know it is very frustrating to have everyone say the same thing about case by case basis. i heard that a million times also, but there is no true way of knowing until the board sees your court paperwork and an essay explaining what led to your behavior.this is a good thing that they do it that way. if they saw criminal records and never lookk at circumstances surrounding the arrests, and got peoples sides of their stories, then anyone with anything on thier record might automatically be denied. get this process started early. i graduated december 17th, 2009. i was just now approved by the bon on march 15th. it can be a long frustrating process, as the boards main concern is the safety of the public! understandably so! im sure you will come out on the good end of the stick. have faith and confidence, thats what got me through these three months of waiting. good luck!
