I got accepted to nursing school and am currently going through a background check. I never have been convicted of any crimes nor have I committed any, but my credit is poor. I was a stockbroker in 2008 and my career collapsed along with the stock market, and I eventually was forced into bankruptcy this year because my accounts were margined with call options that were not covered. My question is: Will this Chapter 7 bankruptcy on my record prevent me from going to my first semester nursing home clinical or am I ok? I am 43 years old without anywhere to turn to in the financial industry, that is why I am going to nursing school. Thank You for your response as it is much appreciated.
