I have been working in EMS (AEMT)for the last 9 years. Considering going to school for BSN and becoming ER Nurse, Flight Nurse, ICU, pediatric, or working offshore as a Nurse.
My concern is licensure, school/clinicals and Employment at Hospitals.
My problem is that I am a convicted felon. I have minor drug possession charges from over 15 years ago.
looking for a way for the Texas board of nursing to review my case and tell me if I'm eligible to be certified - considering I complete all of the educational and training requirements. I'm sure there's an application somewhere I just have not found it yet. I did send them an email with this question..
So, my first step is make this post and to ask for your opinion, concerns and advice relating to licensure , school and completing clinicals and employment.
Thank you in advance for your time.
