    Sealed Record Pre-Nursing

    From what I have gleaned from reading over the years, the State Boards require full disclosure, though they seem to respect lawful protections like sealed records and do not use that against you. You can call them and ask to have your question answer...

    DWI and Endorsement

    Get a lawyer. Tomorrow. Do not talk to ANY authority before you talk to lawyer. Read Hark & Hark blog. Start austerity budget at home. That's my advice. Best of luck.

    Help ! Is there life after (Warning with Stipulations )

    My advice is to get an attorney: some cost less than others. Many will work w/ you on a pay-back as you go system. A "Nurse lawyer" would be the best choice, and they often advertise in your Board of Nursing and state American Nursing Association new...
