    After 10 years you can petition the Court you were charged in for an expungment of your record, then you will no longer have to tell anyone and the offense will no longer be on your record, read my story entitled " Down and Dirty in the Oklahoma state board of nursing " on this site, it will be helpfull. Good Luck.

    hi there. I am new to the board and currently in school. I actually am on the waiting list for my clinical portion of the program. I will be doing the nights and weekend program. I read another post similar to mine and i have a question also pertaining to criminal history. I have record also for a conspiracy charge. I was also in an abusive situation and got in trouble due the relationship. In my state I am not a convicted felon beacuse I pled nolo. The good part of this is now its 12 years and happily married with someone else, two lovely kids and looking forward to a nursing career. I know all employers do background checks but my question is will someone hire me with a record even though its not a severe crime like my lawyer worded it.I really want to work in a hospital. I feel embarssed and ashamed to explain the sitaution to a potentional employer. Does anyone know anyone that got hired with a record? Will anyone hire me? Ive come too far to quit now so Im just pray something good will come my way. God did not bring me this far just to throw me to the curb. Thank you for your help.
