    I'm I able to get my nursing licence with an old felony
    CNA Classification

    Hello I am currently a Caregiver for a senior living co.; however I'd love to continue my education by finishing my CNA, and going forward to LVN.

    I have a felony (211) that is almost 20 years old that has been dismissed/ expunged. The downside is the moment that Im ready to enroll... most teachers ask me if I have any felonies, and if so... I should NOT waste my time by taking the course. That I would never be able to get my nursing license.

    Does anybody know a way around this madness or more info on this subject?

    Thanks In advance

    All schools and facilities will do background checks. One question is always “have you ever been convicted of a felony.” Since you have, you need to find another career path.
