Stacey in Tampa, Florida

I live in Tampa and was interested in becoming a LPN. My problem is that I had a felony conviction 10 years ago that was non violent/non drug related. Would I have a chance at getting both a LPN job and passing the test requirements? Please advise

Oh I forgot to mention that my civil rights were restored about 5 years ago and I have had steady employment since 1999.

you may call your board of nursing and ask them i live in ms and had a misdemineor charge and had to jump threw a few hoops it was just a fine on selling liquior w/o license. i had to send them court documents and a letter in my own words what happened and then they held my test results for two weeks. i also have a friend who had a dui 13 years ago and thought it would no show up or matter since she was clear on fbi records but they are holding her test results now and she is waiting to hear what has to be done. so contact your state board and ask every question u can think of.. ex: what documentation do u need, how long of wait, how will this effect mehope this helps

Wow - that's really something to hear after all of your hard work and time spent passing the test. I am very concerned about me here in Florida and trying to pursue my nursing degree. There are some medical degrees that dont require or as restricted like nursing.

I dont think that I can cope witht this type of disappointment.

I have been a nurse for 24 years and on September 08, 2008 I got pulled over and at that time i was out with friends and i had two 8 oz beers and i was booked. Now let me tell you from this experience, it does affect your chances of getting a job...when they do a back ground check it does show up as a misdemeanor. Now it isn't a Felony...but it doesnt matter. I am a social drinker and never drank and drove...but this woke me up. Now my question is help...Can anyone give me a suggestion on what to do to help with seeking employment and them over seeing the misdemeanor. I am currently working as a prison nurse...which they ask me about this but they didn't see a problem...now this is a state prision and they didn't see a problem so what is everyone elses problem?

I had a felony charge about 13 years ago. I finished nursing school 7 years ago. It was hard to write a letter explaining what happened and showing that I had done well since then....and then the long waiting. Once a month your state does a disciplinary hearing and your case should be heard the following month that you have applied for a license. Unfortunatly I somehow was overlooked. Mine took a few months but I called as often as I could and they allowed me a license. As far as working, I am always honest and in my career have not had a problem where someone would not hire me because of my felony. Good luck to you all.

OHC in Haines City, Florida

67 months ago

I had a similar issue, in fact.. I had it when I first was licensed back in the 90's, but I submitted proof that I had been clean and sober for over 8 years, and had maintained stability, etc.
After several years of practice, I was nearing burn out, my child had a stroke (at age three) and my wife decided to seek a divorce so she could get government subsidized housing, since we had lost everything due to 100's of thousands in medical bills for my daughter.
I left nursing, and relapsed..I got picked up for possession, and eventually went through a long term treatment program, which I completed successfully.
I waited for a long time, and then after many years of clean time, and lots of
rebuilding, I applied for and was licensed again.
What the Board looks for is significant and well documented effort of rehabilitation..if You have that, I see no problem
Good luck and God Bless.

I am a LPN and have been for 5 years. I was convicted of a felony in 2005. My license was suspended than later reinstated. I was ordered to participate in the PHMP. I find it very hard to find employment. What I don't understand is, if the State Board of Nursing find you capable of practicing, why is so hard for others. Where do I even begin to look for employment.

Anthony in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I have been an LPN for the past 10years, recently I have been put on probation for acting out of the scope of my lisence. It has been very hard for me to get a job, as I can not work with temp agencies, nurse registry or for myself as a contractor, I have to be supervised. I was terminated as a result of the probation and has not worked for the past 6 months now. I have up front with any prospective emoployer, however it has been so far very hard. My probation is not a result of using illegal substance neither have I causing any harm to any client/patient or being violent. Would any one advice me on any course of action, I have been a student ay a community college continuing my education in nursing. I was told that I can not continue until the probation is lifted.....Please would anyone help me ?

I am in the same situation, I am on probation I do not have to be supervised and its hard for me as well to find a job. Continuing when our probation is up is a good idea. The thing with me I also have to get a pardon from the state I live in as well. Only thing I can say is keep ur head up and don't let any body with negativity rain on your parade.

Call your nursing board, you will have to have your rights restored, and also
be accepted with your record in the school you want to attend.

Good luck, don't cast your pearls before swine. There are some hispanic women on here that hate White people, so brace yourself.

No nurse can tell you if you will be able to sit for boards.
ONLY the Nursing Board from your state will make that decision, and much of it
depends on your current history.
Here's what you do.. You review what the state you are in has for rules, and if it says a misdemeanor is ok, with explanation (every board I know of wants a full explanation of crimes) and what or how you have changed your life, then it will be your decision as to whether you think you really have changed and will qualify.

I can only say from my experience that they do not give out 'pre-qualified' status in Florida. I had to go all the way through school, hoping that my history had changed enough and that my letters of recommendation , and the letters I got from judges, the injured parties (some boards want a letter from the injured party) and ALL that stuff..I even got letters from my instructors..and in order to do that, I had to make A's, and I had to not be late, and all that, because I wanted to be able to ask for a letter of recommendation.

Most states don't care about a misdemeanor, unless it was really bad.

Good luck.. make sure you want to really be a nurse before you invest your time in it. It takes a special person to do what we do..it is real, people are really sick and you will have to earn your dues before you get some cushy spot counting
supplies.

You are probably going to have a hard time, and here is why..in my opinion.

Nurses are supposed to have enough wits about them that they don't risk driving impaired. Having worked the E.R. and watched tons of guts come in disguised as folks who had been in a DUI wreck, I'd have some concerns about letting you practice..and I am sure the board thinks that too.
My advise to you, in order to save your friggin license, is to insert yourself into a treatment center somewhere, get help, even if you "don't need it" and also
take a defensive driving course..
If it was ME, I would also join AA, get a sponsor, and generally make sure that I have a handle on my drinking.
I personally cannot drink, because I like it too much..

You actually CAN resolve your situation, your nursing board wants you to succeed as a nurse, but they cannot have you running around offering tx to patients when you possibly have issues with substance abuse, and you know it. This is nursing 101.. If you like to party, quit nursing and go to work in a bar, no one is going to think less of you for doing what you enjoy... I know several nurses who went through school, got licensed, and they did it so they could drive a new car.

I won't work with them.

Your point is taken. I did something stupid, because my stress level @ the time was through the roof. I have already done AA, taken classes and been in counseling for the issues that created my lapse in judgement. It was a misdeameanor. At this point I have been granted my license. Thanks for the words of wisdom. I don't work to have a new car. I care about what I do. I have empathy and that is part of the proceses needed to be a good nurse.....

I like your response Scrappy nurse. Just an FYI for those in Florida who may not know...The Board does not want nurses practicing impaired in any way and in 1981 established a means to help such nurses. They now work hand in hand with an agency called Intervention Project Nurse. This is designed to protect the general public and restore the nurse to wellness. The requirements may sound strict yet I think it is a good program. The nurse must be evaluated by an approved doc and follow the recommended treatment plan. It may be 8 weeks of intensive outpt tx or 21 days of inpt tx. Once successfully completed, the nurse is allowed to return to work with the following restrictions..

No home health or hospice nursing for 3 yrs after entering into contract. Must be supervised by an RN who is aware of IPN status. No narcotic keys for 1 year for those with a narcotic abuse problem. Must call in nightly to pre-recorded message and if the nurses color ( pre-assigned) is called, to submit urine drug/alcohol screen at designated lab by 2pm the following day. To attend a weekly IPN meeting and 3 AA or NA meetings. To disclose to any potential employers that nurse is in IPN and have employer submit quartly evaluations of nurses status. I am probably leaving out a few things, but the end result once 3-5 yr contract is completed, is a healthy and reformed nurse.

No concerns for a dui. They are looking for felonies. In Ohio there is a Senate Bill 160, look it up, it has all the automatic bars that will keep you from geting a job, I have a DUI and other stuff and the DUI is the least of my worries. However if you haven't taking your boards you can always write a letter to them about your charge. Hope this was helpfull.

Wondering......

I have a lot to ask! I have my LPN but took the last 13 yrs off after only working part-time at a subacute center. I have done my CE's every 2 yrs. First, does anyone know where I start at a refresher? I live in Orlando, Fl. Second, the bad stuff, Back in July I was arrested and charged with child neglect in Naples, FL. Why? My son refused to get into the suv and took off across a 6 lane rd (at a junction, all new and no traffic I have to add) back to a rental condo. He is 13 everyone! I was cleared by DCF with them stating that a 13 yr old is responsible enough to know better. He is an honor student also that is out of control and spoiled rotten. I have been a single mother not working, dumb, for 13 yrs. Had to add all that to all the mom's who will think the worst !He is out of control and actually attacked me in Aug. Hence, living at his Dad's! The charge was disposed but is on the arrest record. In October, when I went to court over this, I was arrested again the night before I was to go to court! I will NEVER go to that county again. My bf was in disbelief! I was out on bond. I was due in court at 9 am to end the first charge. I was in shock the next am to read the charges were: Resisting arrest without violence, resisting arrest with violence and battery on a police officer. Shock!!! I have NEVER touched anyone in my life! No charge as to why I was arrested!!!!!!! Well, the DA's office dropped/disposed of all the charges but hit me with Obstruction of a police officer. My attorney advised take it because they are out to get me for something. Now, how is all that going to affect me wanting to go back into nursing and I want to eventually get my RN. I have a BA and BS. I would LOVE any and all helpful advise and just anything! Thank you!

Not a good idea... At least in Texas you get finger printed prior to getting your license and they do an FBI nationwide check on you. If you lie, they will eventually find out and you can lose your license. Not worth all that hard work. You need disclose those charges and get a waiver.

jv78 in Anniston, Alabama

51 months ago

I was originally licensed in Alabama, moved out of state where I worked licensed as a LPN in that state. While working in "that" state, I had an incident where I misdosed a patient's medication due to an error both on my part and the MA's part when she wrote it in, but I was turned in by my supervisor (who swore since she knew it was my first time ever in 4 yrs. of being a licensed nurse, of making a mistake, that she was not going to report it, but she would just fire me) to the nursing board. I found out that I had been investigated for the matter but had never been contacted because I had decided to not work as a nurse and to go back to college to take a break. When I finally did try to get a job, I was notified that I was on a disciplinary action. After a process of investigating the matter and reopening it for another investigation and after interviewing me, the nursing board decided to clear me of the discipline and allow me to go back to working as a LPN with NO restrictions or supervision. Now I have moved back to Alabama again, where I was originally licensed. I have been told that I have to reinstate my license here since this is where I was originally licensed. I am in the process of doing so. I am just wondering if anyone thinks that I will have any problems being reinstated. When my license was reinstated after the investigation, I didn't have any problems getting hired. I even told the employer out right why I had been disciplined. Like they said, every nurse makes a mistake. It was the first, last, and only mistake I ever made in nursing.

ol nasty male nurse with white skin in Haines City, Florida

51 months ago

I would do everything I could not to wave a lawyer at the board. They are not fond of uppity nurses.
I am serious as I can be. Write the truth, pray, do whatever, but a lawyer has no sway with the board. They can deny you for the smallest of reasons, and thinking that you can present your history through a lawyer, high priced, good talker, etc., is not the way to go.
If you are a decent person that did well in school, you should not have a problem.
If you have a conviction involving risky public behavior, you probably should not seek a nursing career.
good luck.

What happens if the board uses a different system to check , and they come back with your record ? Its much better not to have to explain a lie, vs. telling them the straight up everything ..besides, when you are thorough, they have a tendency to think you will be honest in the future.

Hey! Thanks, for the reply! I was worried about that charge! I really want to be a RN. In 2008 My boyfriend came to my job and got my car, well he wrecked it. The officer ask me who was driving the car and I wouldnt say anything. All I said was He came and got the car from my job and I was at work so I didnt know who wrecked the car. So since I wouldnt say nothing besides that he chraged me with ressiting a public officer. When I went to court I didnt have a lawyer I just represented myself so I caught the charge :(

I was charged with a DUI 1 yr ago. Any suggestions in my job search. I have 15 yrs experience as a LPN in Florida. First and only offense. I know I made a big mistake just very thankful I did not hurt anyone.
I have applied, but once the DUI is mentioned I never get hired. I am very honest and upfront, I made the mistake and I will pay the price.
Thankful for any suggestions

Hi, I have misdemeanor bad check charge from 1996--all that is on my record. Anyone know if I will be able to get a LPN license or even go through the clinicals at school? I am in GA.
