Declaratory order Texas

Forums: 

Does anybody have to do a declaratory order?

Yes, I sent mine in because of a DUI I got 8 years ago. From what I understand, the process can take months. I am praying mine will be done by January.
I did not get into El Centro, but I did get an alternate spot at another college.

I haven't even started it. I am waiting to do the fingerprints and have the background check come back. I have been arrested so many different times that I have lost track. Writing an explanation for each time would be impossible. I am hoping that only a few of the big ones show up and not the random overnighters that I've done over the years. I am hoping to do the first semester while waiting to hear back from the board and if it doesn't work out it doesn't work out.

@ mr doug dude if there just misdemeanors pay a lawyer to have your records sealed and closed and then when they go to do a background check it will say records not available and sealed. It is against the law for them to question why your records are sealed and closed. and you can skip having to go through all the riga ramoe of Austin trips to justify yourself to the board. now this will not work if you have felonies. only for misdemeanors only. Another thing is if sealing and closeing your records is not enough and you still end up having to go and justify yourself in Austin at the board of nurses, than what ever you do not and I repeat do not go with out legal representation there is something called a registered nurse lawyer who is an actual RN and Lawyer. look up a lawyer named --------- or any other lawyer of your choice I just heard from other Rn's that he is good. He is located right there in Austin and he represents Rn's in your situation all the time. now the reason I say is do not go to Austin rn board by your self without a lawyer to represent you is because of a friend of mine was telling me that a RN coworker of her made a huge mistake of going without a lawyer and the RN board in Austin put her through the ringer with all kinds of questions as if she were a criminal and was on trial and even made her cry and to top it all off she had been waiting from 7am all the way till 4pm in the waiting area before the board would actually even speak to her than they spoke with her and treated her like she had commited murder and all she did was get into a cat fight with another gurl and got asualt charges but the RN board treated her as if she was a hardcore criminal. she told my friend that she would never go Austin Rn board again with out legal representation (lawyer) she said the ones who showed up with there lawyers didn't even have to speak to the RN board they only spoke to their lawyers and they were in by 7am and out by 8am and went on with their lives. im telling you unless your ready to be physically and emotionally drained from sitting for 10 hours starting from a 7am appointment and getting screamed at and treated like a criminal to the point of tears. then feel free to go without a lawyer. if I was in those shoes though I would spend a little and invest in bring an RN lawyer to represent me it would be worth it. hope this advice helps you Mr doug

moved to it's own thread for best response.

Just out of curiosity---why have you been arrested so many times? And why do you want to be a nurse?
