    DUI and licensure in Texas?

    I've already graduated from nursing school. All they said when we got into the program was that if we got arrested for anything, we would have to report it to the board when we applied, which we didn't do until our last year. I talked to a lawyer and she said it shouldn't be a problem since it wasn't a felony and it happened so long ago, but I'm still afraid that I did all that work for nothing.

    DUI and licensure in Texas?

    I know it is a case-by-case thing with the board, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me. I got a DUI in 1999. I was also arrested for theft that year. Both were misdemeanors. I was 20 years old at the time. I am now 26 and a single mother to a 3 year old girl. I want to know if I even have a shot at getting to take boards in texas. The whole FBI check has me freaked out and I haven't even sent in my money for it, since I don't want to waste my money if I can't take boards. I just need some reassurance. I'm a responsible, law-abiding citizen now. Do you think I can still get licensure? Thanks for the help.
