I was told to never return to the store or I would be arrested. This is coming up on a background check. Can I have this removed or do I need a lawyer. This is a rural police department similair to the Dukes Of Hazzard. They will give me a hard time.

It is weird that this is coming up in your background and no charges were filed. You should check your background it is not that hard. Goggle it and you will be able to do so. Did the store take your information?Such as date of birth SS#?

B in Baltimore, Maryland said: In Maryland you do not have to report this on your application unless you have been convicted of a crime. Also you will be able to take the NCLEX and get a licence even if convicted, but you will be asked to sit before the Discipline & Rehabilitation Committee and probably will have to report to them on a regular basis for a few years. This is all confidential and does not show on a license lookup.

Hi B, I have a question for you. I have a fel(1995) and a Mis(2006) theft charge on my record and not a thing since then. Would this stop me from becoming a RN in Maryland or North Carolina?

Telisha in Gary, Indiana said: I live in the state of Indiana. Any DWI on your record out here you will not be accepted in any medical programs. I don't know if it is different in your state. Better to ask the school before you pay for those classes.

a dui in the state of indiana is not an automatic felony. Dui's do not prevent one from being accepted into a nursing program. I had a dark time in my life and received a few dui's. I am being monitored by the INSAP and doing well. More employers than not can hire you. I have dui felony charges pending and have been hired. I am very grateful that I did not hurt another person and that my profession still embraces me!

I have a couple questions and hope some of you can help me with answers. Recently I was in the car with someone who had antidepressants and antianxiety medication in their car. I was charged with Class E of a substance along with the driver of the car. Without my knowledge of them even being in the car, but just by being there I got charged too. I ended up having to go to court but the truth prevailed , and indeed the meds were proven to not be mine. Heres my question; The charges were dismissed(esponged) from my record. But, Will that still show up on my CORI report and prevent my chances of becoming a nurse? I am working so hard to fufill my nursing career, but would rather know now if it would prevent my chances of becoming employed rather than finding out further down the road. Also, does traffic violations, license suspensions, or car accidents show up on CORI reports? And, do all states have CORI reports, or does just Massachusetts have them? I'd appreciate it if some people could help me with some answers to these questions.Ive been looking everywhere for info and came across this site and think some of you may be able to help me! Thank you! Hope to hear from someone soon!

Make sure they did expunged your record. Even when the courts say your record is expunged you need to do paperwork to have it removed. Even when they pull your CORI (most states if not all will) you still need to write a letter of explanation. Unless you have an extreme record most can overlook it or work with you to licence you. The employers on the other hand might follow stricter rules. Don't let this prevent you from trying.

ann in Charlotte, North Carolina

I am wondering if someone can PLEASE help me figure this out. I am currently in pre-nursing and have applied to two nursing schools, (awaiting responses. I currently have my nurse aide I and have applied at a well respected local nursing home. Here is my worry: 3 years ago I went through a very bad divorce after 17 years of marriage, and made some really bad choices, i was arrested for precription fraud, cocaine possession, paraphenila possession. These charges were spread out over a year, I ended up with 1 conviction, which I paid alot to have fully expunged and the others were arrest that were dismissed with no plea bargin or anything just flat dismissed.
Here is my question: will the nurins home in NC be able to see my arrest (I have no convictions due to expungement) and if so can they refuse to hire me based on arrest that were dismissed. Also will I be able to get my nursing licsense with 3 arrest (no convictions) on my record.
I regret that time in my life SOOO much and have turned my life around 110%, I am just really really scarred that I am doomed over the arrest. PLEASE any advice would be great

DWI's are not automatically felonies in indiana. they can be a class a or b misdemeanor as well.

NursingStudent said: I had a similar situation. I was arrested for misdemanor possesionof marijuanna in the state of Fla and believe me this will haunt you! I didn't get booked or anything and I was not convicted but the medical profession will treat any arrest as a conviction. Unless you get your record sealed/expunged you will not be allowed into clinicals and will be unable to complete your program requirements. I had my record sealed and I am now in my last semester of nursing school but the battle is not over. I have to make a special appeal to the board of nursing complete with notarized sealed copies of all documents pretaining to this arrest to have the priviledge of sitting for the boards. I have been on the dean's list since I got into college and will graduate with honors but that doesn't mean anything if I can't take the NCLEX. Dot your i's and mind your q's YOU HAVE TO ADMIT ANY/ALL ARRESTS to the board of nursing.

What was the outcome of this? Did you get to sit for the NCLEX? Did you get a job?

This is so sad. I can't believe how strickt and unaccepting people are or the rules are. I guess if nothing ever bad happens to someone they simply can't relate and they may feel others shouldn't be hired. I have learned to not judge unless I have been in the same shoes as someone. I have also learned to Never say Never, because no one knows until they are in a situation. I hope someone has good advise for you. Good Luck!

Diane in Riverside, New Jersey said: I wouldnt say that you are jaded,Garden Girl, you are frustrated. I have been in a treatment program for over three years now. I want to go back to work as an LPN. But I havent worked since March of 04, so I now have to retake my boards. In NJ they have a program called RAMP that nurses have to do if deemed necessary, for things like DUI's and drug abuse. I am hoping I wont have to enroll because it is 5 years at 100$ per month. I never went to work impaired. But I have had DUI"s. If I am forced into this program I may just forget about the entire nursing thing. I am sober and have been for over a year. I even had to do jail time for my DUI"s. I think I have been punished enough. I am still in my treatment program, because I am also an abuse survivor, and have severe PTSD, and Major depression. Because of my disabilties, it would be impossible for me to do everything that this program requires. So hang in there, at least all you have to do is retake your boards, I have this and more to deal with, just to earn a paycheck!

Remember the saying, "you can never be needier than your patients." I'm not saying we aren't, but you won't get any sympathy in the medical professional revealing your weaknesses. Just admit you showed poor judgement and will never, ever do it again. AND DON'T.

rob said: Kiss your ass goodbye, Forget having an attorney represent you! DWI in the U.S. under the all seeing EYE of MADD, the lap dog of the juducial system has made having any kind of trail a joke. The modern equivalent of the old west saying that the were going to give the person a fair trial, then after were going to hang them! There is no extreme that these revenge hungry poeple will go to take away rights that in most countries consider common sense. recent case against a man in Minnisota points this out. He was convicted for DWI for falling asleep in his car, of which , in many cases is the only place that one can find shelter during an emotion episode with a spose or family member in inclement weather orcircumstances.

You are so correct. These public advocacy groups are power-mad and have reduced medical professionals, teachers and social workers to Roman slaves with their unrealistic demands and rights. How do they earn a living?

GIVEN UP in Antioch, California said: I am so happy for you and I don't even know you. I wish I were in your shoes. I have been looking since 2008 for a job, went to school for Sterile Processing, graduated and still can't find a job. NOt even clerical.

I just really have given up today. People say network-I have given my resume to people that I know that work in places that they say are hiring and never hear from them again. I am so frustrated. I have prayed, and prayed and prayed and I know the LOrd is not leaving me, I just know that he has so many people to help right now.

I'm desperate and now me and my spouse are talking about breaking up and going our separate ways because it's just too hard on him. I agreed. I have no more fight in me. I'm just so tired of hearing about the bills and can't do anything about it. My unemployment will be ending for good in November (99 weeks) So the best I can do is take our little one's and go and stay at my dad's one bedroom apt in a senor community and hope for the best for the next two years. I'm happy for you though. One less person in depression.

Get out of California.

1mrnurse in Corpus Christi, Texas said: Hello: As you should know, an arrest record will forever show any, any, any arrest you have ever been arrested for. You do have the option of showing by certified court record that the charge was dismissed. But how many employers would even ask; most presume that if you were arrested for a charge obviously you were guilty.
It is not fare but it is true. 1mrnurse

This is true HOWEVER I am sure the employer would be looking for the result because if the charge is listed but no conviction (people dealing with CORI Checks know how to read them and understand them) then you were arrested but were you charged were you convicted? If yes then the result is there also. They can not ASSUME people are guilty because they were arrested that is crazy.When and if you are ever called for jury duty remember that your dealing with lives in your hands and just because someone is in court as a defendant it DOES NOT mean they are Automatically GUILTY . There is a difference between being arrested and being charged with something.There are many parts to this and it is called the Judicial System.

I believe that there is a general law that all hospitals,schools,nursing facilities,have to do a CORI check so whether the BON knows or not it is on the CORI as sealed so they know something is there which gets them more curious one would think so the employer would see there was something. Be honest and upfront before they even run the CORI if they can still hire you within their guidelines maybe you will have a shot at it esp if you really want the job. They will appreciate your honesty and it will lessen your anxiety.

Many years ago, my partner and I were arrested for several marijuana charges. My case was nolled the following year. I applied to and recently graduated from nursing school. I have done background checks on myself which yield ABSOLUTELY nothing...(sigh)but if someone were to follow thru and look at my partner's record, his convictions are listed. No questions came up when I applied to school, took a job at a hospital, applied to take the boards and my nursing license. While I cannot locate an arrest record for myself, could it still be out there, and might an employer pass me over if they see my partner's record? My lawyer advised me that I do not have to ever mention the incident, and there was no conviction. I have had trouble finding work, and are so scared that this information has already prevented me from being hired. Any thoughts?

Here in Florida, to the best of my understanding, they only look back 15 years. That includes felonies. I would think that you are safe.

I just got my background report back and I had a DUI 28 years ago ..it showed up and when I went to Clerk of courts they have "Destroyed" my File. They gave me a certified letter stating that. So now I am writing my letter of circumstance ect. This is crazy.

Isabel in San Bruno, California said: Hi all. I just recently graduated with my BSN and was recently charged with a DUI (a.k.a. DWI) in California after celebrating with classmates one night. The charges are still pending with the court here in California. It was a horrible mistake to drive even though I thought I was the most sober one out of everyone. Stupid me. I should've, could've, would've done things differently that night, but it's too late now. I have been going crazy thinking about my recent misdemeanor charge (my first one). I'm so terrified of the fact that I won't be able to get my RN license now. My question for you guys is, will I be able to still take the NCLEX board exam to get my RN license? I know California is one of the toughest states to get your RN license in. The Boards in California ask for the date/recency of each time you've been arrested, convicted, and even dismissed charges all of them with detailed explainations, letters of recommendations, and proof of rehabilitation. I want to know if I should consider moving to another state to take the board exam to get my RN license, and if so, which states are less strict on getting licensed with a DUI or DWI. I still want to become an RN more than anything and would do just about anything to be able to take the board exam to become licensed! I would hate for my BSN to go to waste over one DUI misdemeanor. I already learned my lesson. I will never forget this experience. I am trying to move on with my life now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You can get ARD for you DUI since it is your first conviction. Then you have to write to Boards explain that you regret, how and why this happened. And get treatment and summit to board you get treatment. You will get your license and your record will be expunged because it is first time. Do not worry. Good luck

No conviction is not on your license. Even it is sealed you still have to tell Boards.But not to employers.

Every board looks at each individual case differently, if you've never held a license and are graduating from school , the board will give you access to take exams but the initial license may be denied. In this event appeal the decision and hire an attorney to help you in an administrative hearing with the board. Never face them without representation. Plead your case show them you are remorseful and what you plan to do to make sure you violate no more codes of conduct. Don't let anything stop you from applying, reapplying or appealing. Be upfront and honest, there are people out there including board members who don't have a sparkling resume or are dealing with a child with the same. Don't be afraid to appeal to the human side of people. It will be tough but it can be done.

you can have your CORI sealed in MA, and first time drug convictions have no waiting period also, you have to have not been in trouble for a notable time, and you have to explain how this mistake(s) have made it difficult for you to obtain employment and sustain yourself - that you have changed your life for the better and pretty much prove you are going to be a productive member of the society, unless they want you to sit on welfare and suck the system dry like many do, and I'm not being stereotypical, I receive food stamps, but I work and contribute, but do need help. Anyway, have your record sealed and then you can say no on your job apps going forward. Sealing it is not as hard as you think, go here for the forms.

Millie Ray in Connecticut said: Many years ago, my partner and I were arrested for several marijuana charges. My case was nolled the following year. I applied to and recently graduated from nursing school. I have done background checks on myself which yield ABSOLUTELY nothing...(sigh)but if someone were to follow thru and look at my partner's record, his convictions are listed. No questions came up when I applied to school, took a job at a hospital , applied to take the boards and my nursing license. While I cannot locate an arrest record for myself, could it still be out there, and might an employer pass me over if they see my partner's record? My lawyer advised me that I do not have to ever mention the incident, and there was no conviction. I have had trouble finding work, and are so scared that this information has already prevented me from being hired. Any thoughts?
