Can a Convicted Felon get a Job as a Nurse?

Felon wants job as a nurse

Felon
I am a convicted felon with a civil rights violation. (I used to be a police officer) I have not been able to find a job and I am assuming it is because of my felony. I am planning on going back to school and wanted to become a registered nurse. I have heard conflicting info about a felon getting a nursing license. I have been told by two states board of nursing that I would have to graduate from nursing school before they would hear my case. That doesn't make any sense to me. Why would I want to pay my way through nursing school if there was a chance I couldn't get a license? I need to find out what type of licenses a felon can successfully obtain and what companies hire felons in the mean time. Any information will be helpful.

Thank You,

Jenn



Hello Jenn,

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble getting definitive information. The certification processes will vary from state to state. A felon may be eligible in one state and not another. Many states have on-line overviews of licensing procedures as they relate to various professions.

My next suggestion is to get some legal assistance in finding out about the licensing of felons in your state. You may be able to get low-cost or even no cost assistance at you local legal aid office.

I have posted a video on Youtube that list of companies that have been known to hire ex-offenders and felons.
