I have a friend Jane who graduated from nursing school
but is not being allowed to take the state board test because she was arrested for a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence. However those charges were dismissed in court, in part because the victim falsified statements. Jane has no other criminal record, and she lives in California. She understands the process whereby she will eventually be allowed can take the state board licensing exam, and assuming she passes the exam, I am wondering if this dismissed charge will have a detrimental effect on her seeking employment as a nurse even thought she'll always have a record of being arrested? Jane is currently under the assumption there is no hope. Thank you.
