Obtaining RN license with misdemeanor

scraver98 scraver98 (New) New

I started my prerequisites for nursing and hope to get into the accelerated program for nursing in New York State.

I do have a DWI which was pleaded down to unclassified misdemeanor five years ago, when I contacted my states BON they said I shouldn't have a problems with getting my license. However, i know there's no guarantee that I will be licensed but more importantly will I be able to find a job once an RN?

I hear that getting hired in a hospital is next to impossible with a misdemeanor or even landing a job. Also, stipulations on your license which makes employment even harder for a nurse?

I would like to know if any nurses who received their license with a misdemeanor and did you have stipulations placed on your license? Did you have a difficult time finding employment?
