    Becoming a CNA with a petty theft misdemeanor..

    Hello,
    I'll soon be starting the CNA program but I've recently been caught stealing an $8 item from a store. I made a horrible horrible mistake and I feel like the lowest of the low lifes right now.. My court date is set for later this month. Is there any possibility for me to ever be hired as a CNA or eventually become a nurse? This is my first offense and I live in the state of Oregon if that helps. I made a stupid mistake and I'm stressing over the possibility that this will forever haunt my career dreams. Any help will be appreciated.

    Caught Stealing - What the bleep were you thinking?????????? What did you steal? Is it a first offense? May be you can plea it out with lots of community service. Go into court contrite and humble Most BRN's will want to see some proof of what measures you took to make amends for the crime and you'll probably start your career on some kind of probation
