In brief: Possibly.

Check with your local and state laws and hospital regulations; some states are more strict than others, but a remote history of abuse with proven clean past for several years should not be prohibitive in most states and hospitals.
Make sure tyou disclose this in all applictions because lying about it can prevent you from achieving your dream.
