  • Welcome and thank you for stopping by. As a professional licensing attorney for doctors and nurses and health care providers, as well as students, I'm often asked about the application process when you have a negative criminal history. The question is, am I automatically precluded from being a doctor or nurse or other health care professional.
  • The short answer is no but the long answer is, it really depends. There are some convictions that will automatically deny you a license to practice medicine. However, there are some convictions that are in the gray area, then it depends on the application that you put together. It depends upon the circumstances in which you where convicted. It depends on who you are today.
  • My suggestion, contact a professional licensing attorney to help you put together your application so that you are presented in the best light possible in front of the Department of Health and therefore increase your chances of actually obtaining that license that you worked so hard for.
