    The problem with expungement is the BON will still be able to access it and read it...that information will always be available to the board.
    Things are getting more stupid every day in Nursing. So she has a shoplifting charge. 14 years ago! Doesn't what she has done in all those years count for anything. Did she loose her standing in the Human Race because she made a mistake 14 years ago! Like I wrote before if she reported it there is nothing to worry about. Even if she didn't a lease here in Jersey they would tell her to amend her record. She has a lawyer. No problem. People now days have to much time on their hands.
    This is not a rant against you Diva, It's just a rant Any BON that is more concern with a 14 year old charge then they are with what she has done lately...Well I would just say move to a state whose BON is more in touch with reality. If her board says something she can say why didn't you check. I remember the first time I went for my license. They asked if I was ever convicted of a crime. I said no. I was never convicted but I had done a lot of things in the service for which I shoud have been hung. But shoplifting wasn't one of them. All I wanted to write was don't scare the poor kid.

    As far as the "weird moment", I was somewhat confused, because since they have done online renewals, the last 4 years or so, when I check yes, it always defaults and allows you to write your explaination. It did not do that, I knew the board is/was aware of my history, and ALL documentation was provided before I ever was licensed.
    And, as far as the expungement goes, once it is expunged, I do not have to admit to it at all, it is completely wiped clean, and could challenge the board. But, I think that's pointless. If they didn't put any action against my license to start with, why would they when the data is the same.
    Point is, I didn't mean to actually lie. I was afraid to check yes, and marked no, basically meaning no new convictions.
    Oh well. 2 weeks and still no word from BON

    this goes against everything i have read about expungements. from what i have read, nursing boards (and a few other entities) will in fact see an expungement, and you must report it. not to employers, but to state licensing boards like the bon.

    please ask your lawyer about this, because this is an important point.

    This is true...Nursing Boards are privy to the same information as are a few other agencies, such as the FBI and yes, they WILL see an expungement. Employers will not see it. BON will. Again, ask your attorney, if you do not report and something comes up it could cause a much larger problem.
