Law Notes: What means "conviction" in Kentucky?

For nurses. 

Kentucky state law requires licensed nurses to report criminal convictions to the Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN) within ninety (90) days of the conviction KRS 314.109.

KRS Chapter 314.011(21) defines a conviction as the following:
  •  (a) An unvacated adjudication of guilt; 
  •  (b) Pleading no contest or nolo contender or entering an Alford plea; or 
  •  (c) Entering a guilty plea pursuant to a pretrial diversion order; Regardless of whether the penalty is rebated, suspended, or probated. 

It's just a beginning.
