Time to look for another line of work.
So, in essence, you will not get a job, and probably not accepted to nursing school because:
a) You abused drugs and nurses have to deal with drugs constantly;
b) You were a thief, so you cannot be trusted NOT to steal the drugs; and
c) You were drunk and disorderly, so you cannot be trusted to come to work sober, stay away from the drugs, and might possibly abuse patients in one way or another.
I know you may be trying to turn your life around, but this is how the medical field looks at convictions such as this.
