I am currently in LPN school. I will be finish in April 2010. I have a theft of property 3rd degree, misdemeanor charge in Alabama. I am very concern that I may not get my license. When I graduate, the charge will be six years old. Should I be concern about not getting my license. I am very afraid. I am working very hard in school & I have awesome grades. In September, I will be going to clinicals. I had spoken to the Dean of Nursing at school & she stated that a misdemeanr will not stop me. Also, I have 3 worthlesss checks charges that are unrelated. I had a couple of bounce checks because of lack of communication between my husband and I. We were newlyweds at the time of the returned checks. He would write checks & I would write checks & not say anything to each other. I need some advice. Please help! Any opinions would be greatly appreciate!
Questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:
Is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history?
Is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a MIP, DUI, or other related charges?
What happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
Can I go to nursing school and/or be licensed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
Will I be able to go to nursing school with a criminal record?
What can happen if I receive a MIP/DUI/DWI or other charge while still in school?
These are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. The only reliable source of information is your State Board of Nursing.
Not sure what state you are applying to but this is what is on the Alabama nursing board website
