Trouble with the California Board of RN, need advice or opinion

  1. Hey everyone,

    I am lost and don't know what to do at this point. I was hoping some of you guys can give me some help or possibly been through what I am going through at this moment.

    I recently graduated with my BSN. My school helped me with the application and I didn't think much of it. I focus everything in passing my last term and months pass by because I was told the application process was being delayed. I finally got a letter by mail saying the board denied me.

    A background of my past and I don't know what I was thinking of the time and it was stupid. I am paying the price right now and it is just depressing. Both times are petty theft I committed one back in Feb 2011 and another Aug 2012. Both times I did my community service and done. I definitely learned my lesson especially after this. I ashamed everyone around and don't want to repeat that ever again.

    I really appreciate people helps

    I think you need to contact a lawyer and see if you can get this expunged.
