I am a nursing student in Florida, I am 29 years old. When I was 17 I get arrested for grand theft but I was referred to teen court and it was dismissed. My record has been clean since. I got accepted to nursing school and I've been reading a lot on here about expungment. When I apply to sit for NCLEX, it seems like I would need to disclose my juvenile arrest, although I was not convicted. I'm debating on getting it expunged, but it seems like I would need to report my expunged juvenile case regardless to BON, so then what is the point of expunging?
I already work in the hospital as a tech so I have a nursing job lined up, I need advice on to expunge or not for BON. Please share if you live in Florida and have been through the process. Thank you!
