Got my RN license in CA with 5 felonies and 3 midemeanors - page 4

I'll start out by saying that if you are worried about getting your license because of a criminal record and feel like giving up, don't! Background When I was 18 years old I was arrested and was... Read More

    It is expunged. Actually, It's more than expunged. As far as the courts are concerned "the arrest and conviction are deemed never to have occurred." I quote the California penal code on that [pc 1210.1(e)(1)]

    I am so impressed by your struggles and you perseverance to move forward.

    However, right now California has about a 47% unemployment rate for new grads...and while there are laws preventing employers for certain practices it doesn't mean it won't influence them. Just because your criminal charges will be gone you have reported to the board where they will remain forever....your future employer will check.

    Hospitals are notorious cheats but they are very good at not getting caught...and have built up a reputation of being unsympathetic an ruthless.

    If you are HR and hve 200 applicants for one position....who do you hire....the nurse with no reporting on their license...or one that does....I hope I am wrong...but you might find getting hired a challenge. What the courts consider expunged or expired...doesn't mean your employer will. HR department in hospitals are shrewd and have the morals of alley cats.
    statute of limitations in California for criminal and civil background checks is 7 years.
    But that does not mean that the hospital will hire you....I so hope I am wrong.

    Praemonitus praemunitus or forewarned is forearmed.....

    I wish you the best!!!!

    I'm not a lawyer so I don't plan on reading a bunch of legal jargon. No need to get butt hurt. Again, I hope I am wrong but I still don't think it's going to be as easy as you think. People with no criminal or drug past can't get jobs.
