While felonies will prohibit your obtaining a nursing license, these are not felonies. The admission into a school is the school's decision, not a lot.
This is not a criminal defense question; It is an academic admissions question, and no lawyer can tell you whether or not you will be admitted into nursing school.
If you want to increase your odds at getting a competent answer then you should ask the only folks who can provide you an answer, to wit: the admissions committee of the school to which you are applying.
I hope that I have been helpful in properly re-directing your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
In Florida a felony conviction, or even a withhold, may preclude you from entrance to a nursing school. Domestic battery may also be an enumerated reason a school may not allow you to attend. Contact the school that you want to attend and ask them. This could save you a lot of time, money and effort. Additionally, you should contact the Department of Health to determine if you are eligible for a license, with your prior record, after you graduate. It would be unfortunate for you to go through all of the schooling just to find out that you are ineligible to be a nurse. Talk to an administrative lawyer who handles nursing board cases and they may be able to let you know right away if you are eligible.
