Hello, I am wondering if anyone can reassure me that I will be able to get my RN license in GA. I am currently starting my senior year of Nursing school, and am an honor student (I was chosen as student of the year at my school for 2008). I have a misdemeanor marijuana possession conviction from 13 years ago..I was young and stupid, and with the wrong crowd. I was accepted into nursing school and was told everything would probably be ok since the conviction was so many years ago. Of course my drug test was clean, and would be for any one who wanted to test me at any time. I can't help but worry that the state of GA will deny my application for licensure because of this...it is so embarassing...none of my classmates know and they would never believe it! Does anyone have any advice or insight? Georgia does not allow expungement of convictions of any type no matter how old, and I am stuck with this humiliating problem forever.
