Hello, I am from California 45years old. I had a CNA liscense a long time ago back in 2004. I had to let it go because I had gotten in some trouble. Mixed in with the wrong crowd. Needless to say for some one who never been in trouble before I ended up with a felony charge of vandelism on my record. There goes my career as a nurse, or any job. I had gone through the changes. It is now 2013. I have paid all fines and fees on my record, did the time. I got the record expunged in March 08,2012. I did it myself before the judge and showed my rehabilitation I went through Empire Business College and completed the Medical Administrative Program, but with the charge still on my record, as a felony no one would hire me.
I wrote a letter to the judge, and she reduced the charges from a felony vandelism to a misdemeanor and dismissed the charges! I have not had a back ground check done since then I do not know what shows up, but I am tired of working minimum wage retail sale jobs. I am going to try an take CNA classes through the Red Cross, and seeing if my back ground will clear. What do you think? Wish me luck, will follow through the update. The funny thing now the poeple that I got in trouble with years ago, are no where to be found, a lesson learned and never give up.
