In an announcement posted on its website, the California Board of Registered Nursing said it will be requiring all nurse licensees to declare if they have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony during the last renewal period.

The move came after the LA Times and Propublica reported that the California Board of Registered Nursing allowed allowed sex offenders, drug users and convicts to retain and renew their nursing licenses.

All previous convictions must be disclosed even if they have been dismissed, reduced, or expunged.

Filipino registered nurses working in the State of California are also subject to the new renewal requirements which took effect last October 23, 2008.
