This is a real tricky one! I assume by SC you mean South Carolina.

According to their nursing board, having a conviction is grounds for Revocation, Suspension or Other Restriction or Limitation on a License to practice nursing. However, I know of people who have past convictions, but can still practice either fully or with limitations on their licence.

You will need to consult the nursing board directly, as they will be the ones making the decision. You will need to include in the letter what the conviction was for, how long ago, what you have done since (work wise and social), and probably any referees you can find who can support you claim. We have all done stupid things in the past and it would be great if they didn't effect us, however the board need to ensure that you are safe and are not likely to do it again.

From the information from my nursing board they like to restrict people for some time, and then slowly remove the restrictions. You next problem will be finding an organization who are willing to employ you with you convictions.
