Quote from kenzijenae
The state board told me if the probation is completed successfully that I will not be a conviction. I will show up as me being charged, and have plead guilty along with a completed probation. That pretty much will make it so there is no record. I am just nervous that I might be wasting my time once I am finished with probation witch is very soon. I will not have a problem getting into school I know that from what they have already told me..
If this is what is shown publicly at the end of your process: charges, guilty plea, and sentence of probation, then you will be considered to have been convicted of whatever you plead guilty to. I have seen guilty pleas with suspended sentences and a dismissal of charges after
successful completion of probation. When that happens, what's seen ultimately is a charge with a disposition of "dismissed" and no record of the suspended sentence or guilty plea. If that's the deal you have, then you might be OK.
Remember that "moral turpitude" issues can also keep us from getting licensed as nurses.
That's why I suggested very strongly that you contact a lawyer who is knowledgeable in dealing with your state's nursing board, or at the very least, one that's well-versed in administrative law.
