I know someone who has a 12 year old class C felony charge. What happened was, he was drunk and someone came after him.He didn't start the fight, but he took it too far in defending himself. He has been in a recovery program and he would like to get his LPN (Nursing license). Is it possible for him to do this in Virginia?
Nursing is a licensed practice, more than likely a felony will prevent someone from a state licensed profession. People with a history of losing their temper to excess or drug use are not good behavior patterns for a nurse since they have to deal with patients and drugs all day. Check the laws in Virginia for LPN licensing or call your local hospital for information.
maybe try to get files expunged---12 years islong enough ago to prove that you can still be an asset to the healthcare field...good luck,,candie
The thing is, he's in recovery, and he actually doesn't lose his temper often.
