SO I basicly realized I ruined my life! I really would like to become an LPN after having a steady career as a Office Manager of a small business for the past 2 years. I found a great 15 month program that I really would like to take. The only issue is I have 2 misdemeanor retail theft charges on my record from almost 5 years ago, my parents were going through a divorce and I was moving from place to place to place, long story short I made some stupid decisions! i have completely changed my life 100% since then, get an assoicates in Business and landed this job. I really want to become an LPN though, should I not even bother with these charges? will it be a waste of time? Please let me know before I waste any of my money or time, thank you!
