I was just wondering if anyone knows if I have to send certified copies of court documents regarding prior convictions and also submit a description of the rehabilitative changes in my life to avoid future occurrences again.

Your question needs to be directed to the Board. We can not answer that question here. The Board determines its requirements on an individual basis.

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?
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 if my record has been sealed or expunged?
Will I be able to go to nursing school 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.
As mentioned the BON/BRN will look at each case and decide individually
