So I was arrested for simply battery a misdemeanor when I was a Juvenile in FL, I went through a diversion program, completed it successfully and looking to become a nurse in a couple of years wondering if I need to answer yes to this question
d.Have you ever been convicted, pled guilty to or pled Nolo Contendere to the violation of any federal, state or other statute or ordinance constituting a felony or misdemeanor? (Including convictions for driving under the influence, but excluding traffic violations)? Yes ______ No ______. If yes, explain below and have a certified copy of the court order, including evidence that all court requirements have been satisfied sent to the Board of Nursing office.Yes very confusing to say the least, to be a little more specific I went into the court hearing and was asked if I wanted to enter the diversion program, I never plead guilty or no contest. My papers say approved recommendation of nonjudical punishment and once the diversion program was compeleted it would be dimissed. The Public Deffender did mention that if I did not complete the diversion program then it would go back to the court for a judicial punishment. This happened when I was a Juvenile (17) in Florida.
