It’s important to note that the circumstances may be different if you are charged with a felony after securing your CNA license. As any existing certified nursing assistant will know, renewing your license is needed by law, and such a change in your personal background may alter the decision-making process of your suitability to work in nursing.
If you want to know what your employability prospects are, you should contact the Human Resources departments for some of the leading institutions in Colorado who have openings for CNAs. Anonymously, you will be able to ask if CNAs with previous felony charges would be considered for a position, and if so, if there would be any additional checks that needed to be processed.
Currently studying for that CNA license? Try to find out where you stand with the authorities. The last thing you want is to obtain a qualification which can’t be used in the workplace because of your criminal background. Good luck, and be patient as you review your options!
