Re: Can I Get a Registered Nursing License with a Felony?
Generally, if someone has been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor they may not be allowed to take the RN licensing exam. The question of eligibility to take the RN licensing exam will be determined when the application for license is received by the State Board of Nursing. A background check will be done & if any criminal hx developed, it will normally exclude you from most jobs in the medical field.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
