hi all,

i think i have a problem. im really scared the state wont give me a license to practice because of a misdemeanor. it happened 10 years ago when i was 19. we got pulled over comming home from a party and well i was jailed for being under influence of a control substance. anyways they gave me a misdemenor and sent me to rehab. is it true that you have to have a squeaky clean record to be licensed cus i heard someone in school say that and now im very worried. can anyone pls give any insight on this. thanks

Yes, you can get a license...HOWEVER, you will have to explain it on your application, demonstrate contrition, and explain how that negative experience changed you for the better.

yea you can still get ur license..all u have to do is disclose it on your application form...the process will take a little longer because they have to do a whole background check, etc...basically the process will take alittle longer...as long as you have all the information... you should be fine...dont let it stop you... i had a misdemanor also alittle over 10 years..and im in california...

Just graduated from my Respiratory program, and I too had a misdemeanor 8 years ago. As far as my school clinical rotation was concerned, I was only denied access to one facility. No big deal. I did go through the program with doubts weather I would be able to get a state license or not, however I did the best I could and gave the program 100%. I just received my state license, and with out being asked to make an appearance before the state board. I understand mandatory appearances happen a lot. On my state license application they required court documentation, which I had, and a police report which I didn't provide. I wrote a formal typed letter explaining what had occurred, and how in 8 years later I have my life together, and am not doing stupid things along with detailed information about why I am a responsible person today. Today I am a RRT with 2 jobs with a first year out of school $60,000 easy money. Don't let your dreams pass you by. Don't worry about having a misdemeanor, just be honest and tell the truth about it.
