    Your posts have inspired me to go ahead and submit my declaratory order. I've been putting in off for years and chose another field of work instead that I hate. The only thing on my record is a Felony theft charge from 2004 which I received deferred adjudicated probation for and have successfully completed. Therefore the charge was dismissed, however, I know this must be reported to the board. I'm gathering recommendation letters now from my probation officer, and the placement director at my school. I'm just curious to know what my chances are after everything is submitted??? Again congratulations to you and good luck.

    Thank you very much. I'm glad that my posts have been inspiration to someone else. While I can't tell you what your chances would be, I can tell you that after they received everything from me and got my fingerprints back, it took 11 days for them to approve me. I got the letter around the end of June and it was dated June 19th. Are you located in Texas? If you are I found a couple of links that may help you better judge your chances. Just let me know if you want them. Good luck!!:spin:

    The first link I'm posting is the TXBON Disciplinary Guidelines for Criminal Conduct. It pretty much lists most categories of offenses and what they normally do about them. That link is:
    http://www.bon.state.tx.us/disciplin...scp-guide.html

    This link is the link to where they post their meeting minutes so you can kind of see what kinds of offenses they approve and stuff like that. I mostly used that one to make myself feel better. Every little bit helped during the nerve wracking process. That link is:

    http://www.bon.state.tx.us/about/events.html Just click on either the Regular Meetings or the Eligibility & Disciplinary Committee Meeting Agenda. If you click on the Regular Meetings link, just scroll down until you see the Eligibility and Disciplinary Commitee and click on that. It won't name any names but it will tell the nature of the crime and all that stuff, and if they approved the order or not, or if they approved it with stipulations. Hope this helps. Good Luck!!

    A declaratory order is for people who wish to get licensed as a nurse but have a criminal record. They have to go through a whole process for the BON to decide if they will issue a license to a person with a criminal history. I chose to do mine before I started NS because the school I will be applying to said that I have a better chance of being able to do my clinicals if I'm accepted. Because they will find my charge on a background check, I can give them the letter and they will waive it. Or something like that. Since they say that the process can take 3 months to up to 2 years, I figured I would do it early and get it done, that way I would know whether I needed to go a different direction for my career. Hope that helps!
