Yes, generally. It will depend on what misdemeanor, and the laws in your area.

However, there really isn't a simple or quick answer to this question because it depends on a lot of factors like what the conviction was for, etc... The best thing to do is to talk to someone at the Board that handles nurse licensing in your state. A search of their website might also tell you one way or the other.
