Hi everyone, I was wondering if I could get some advice with my situation. About three years ago I was convicted of a 3rd degree misdemeanor, the only charge I have ever received in my life. I completed a conditional discharge and I am eligible to get the record expunged. My problem is that I am expected to go through the process of a Certified Background to gain clearance clinical no later than May 30th. I am going to call my lawyer to start the process of expungement tomorrow but the process takes a few months so I am expecting the conviction to show up when my background check is performed. Would it be recommended that I contact the BON of my state before submitting the background check and letting them know the case is in the process of being expunged? I am very nervous that I will not be able to begin nursing school in the fall because of this. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your time.
