I have known Doctors, nurses and many other medical technicians who have been convicted of misdemeanors and felonies as adults who still work in the medical field. You can have the local sheriff's office run a background check on you and see what will show up.
You should also check with your school. Call the schools office and talk with them. Let them know your questions and they will be able to tell you what you can expect as employment opportunities in the future.
You can seal these records depending on the charge. what are the charges? Do not panic as even if they are not sealable as a juvenile they will automatically be expunged from your record between 24-26 years of age. there is hope stay positive and list the charges

Everyone deserves a second chance and like my colleague I have known many nurses and doctors who have had juvenile charges who have been able to overcome. I hope you will still pursue your career but you could also check with the Florida Board of Nursing. Here is the link: www.floridasnursing.gov/
Even if you seal or expunge, you will have to disclose usually if you apply to a hospital or other medical facility, so you will want to get some guidance if you can still pursue this career. I wish you the best of luck!

There are some attorneys that specialize in helping people get, and keep their medical licenses. An attorney that practices in this area may be more helpful.
