I suppose it depends on the type of felon that you are and what it is that you did in your past. If you are able to qualify for the schooling to be a physical or respiratory therapist, and you are able to have someone hire you, knowing your past, then you can definitely be one. If you want to open your own practice, I suppose you would have to openly disclose yourself to the public. Just because you may have a past, doesn't mean that you should be hindered from a future. However that unfortunately does not change how others may react or feel towards you. Just be ready for that.

I agree wit you on this.  I am a Physical Therapist and my son who is the felon wants to follow in my footsteps and I have no problem with hiring him after he gets out of Jail and to a PT school. I know his real heart and what he is capible of and the guy who ratted hin out got off scott free, my son was the lookout and never enterd the store but this other kidd did and turned state evidence agaist my Son and got off .  Not fair indeed, my son paid for what he did and this kidd will to some day!! 

I am sorry to hear about what your son has had to go through and that the real felon got off. I think it's great though that you are able to give your son an opportunity to build his career. Unfortunately there are many people ot there that wouldn't take the time to really hear your son out and give him a chance. He is very lucky to have a father like you.
