    Can you get a nursing license with a felony in Florida?
    My wife got charged with stealing $100 when she work for Wal-Mart 12 years ago. Is it possible for her to get her nursing license?

    Most likely she will not get a nursing license with a felony in any state. However, if she does happen to be lucky enough to get a license with this kind of background, it will be near impossible for her to get employment.

    I did not think a $100 thieft qualified as even a 3rd degree felony in Florida. Are sure this was considered a felony, why?

    Yes, looking at her record it has third degree felony. Wal-Mart dropped the charges but the state picked up the case. Why? I don't know. After read the detail she was charged with grand theft. So, we have to find out why and if it can be revised. More than likely not. Thanks for your reply.

    The detail from the county web page;
    Statute: 812.014
    Level/Degree: Felony - Third Degree
    Charge Number: 1
    Offense: GRAND THEFT
    Disposition: Def Sent/Adj WH

    So I wonder which part of the statute she violated to be charged with a felony. "(c) It is grand theft of the third degree and a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084, if the property stolen is:

    1. Valued at $300 or more, but less than $5,000.

    2. Valued at $5,000 or more, but less than $10,000.

    3. Valued at $10,000 or more, but less than $20,000.

    4. A will, codicil, or other testamentary instrument.

    5. A firearm.

    6. A motor vehicle, except as provided in paragraph (a).

    7. Any commercially farmed animal, including any animal of the equine, bovine, or swine class, or other grazing animal, and including aquaculture species raised at a certified aquaculture facility. If the property stolen is aquaculture species raised at a certified aquaculture facility, then a $10,000 fine shall be imposed.

    8. Any fire extinguisher.

    9. Any amount of citrus fruit consisting of 2,000 or more individual pieces of fruit.

    10. Taken from a designated construction site identified by the posting of a sign as provided for in s. 810.09(2)(d).

    11. Any stop sign.

    12. Anhydrous ammonia.

    However, if the property is stolen within a county that is subject to a state of emergency declared by the Governor under chapter 252, the property is stolen after the declaration of emergency is made, and the perpetration of the theft is facilitated by conditions arising from the emergency, the offender commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084, if the property is valued at $5,000 or more, but less than $10,000, as provided under subparagraph 2. or if the property is valued at $10,000 or more, but less than $20,000, as provided under subparagraph 3. As used in this paragraph, the term “conditions arising from the emergency” means civil unrest, power outages, curfews, voluntary or mandatory evacuations, or a reduction in the presence of or the response time for first responders or homeland security personnel. For purposes of sentencing under chapter 921, a felony offense that is reclassified under this paragraph is ranked one level above the ranking under s. 921.0022 or s. 921.0023 of the offense committed.

    (d) It is grand theft of the third degree and a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084, if the property stolen is valued at $100 or more, but less than $300, and is taken from a dwelling as defined in s. 810.011(2) or from the unenclosed curtilage of a dwelling pursuant to s. 810.09(1).

    (e) Except as provided in paragraph (d), if the property stolen is valued

    Has to be more too it, 100 dollar theft should not be a felony, it goes by dollar amount, was she accused of stealing more ( even if she only took 100)
    Was there other causes for the charges, was a weapon involved ?
