I have a spent conviction on my current PVG certificate. I work full time in an NHS hospital as a health care assistant. My conviction is for fraud which was due to using a family members bank card when I should not have. They decided to charge me not knowing the implications it might have. Will this stop me applying to study nursing even although my employer still employed me knowing about the conviction?

Hi, if you did decide to apply to study adult nursing at university when you submit you're ucas application, you will need to declare this, the university may ask you more about it prior to, on the interview/selection day or after. They will take the conviction into account when deciding to offer a place. You will just need to be upfront and explain the situation. They will also need to take into account if you will be able to register with the NMC when you finish the degree.
Other students have successfully got places on nursing & midwifery degrees so it isn't impossible. You could always ask the universities you would be applying to, to see if they can give more specific advice.
I don't have personal experience only what I've picked up from others.
I hope this helps.

mm nasty. first it a bad offence to have theft and breach of trust.how long ago was the offence. your going to have to be very convincing.that you admit you did it that you have learnt from it and that you have changed. you do face a serious chance of being refused. how did you get a hospital post did they not ask about your offending.

Hi. I am unsure but the most important thing to do is to be honest. When you are applying for your course you should be completely honest and transparent about the criminal conviction. If you are honest they can understand and hopefully it won't go against you, but i am unsure of this. If you decided to not disclose about your offence it would most likely go against you and you may not be able to get into nursing. Good luck.
