So I got in trouble back when I was 18 for a pety theft misdemeanor. And it showed up on my nationwide criminal backround check but not on my pa backround check.... Weird.. But I went through the ard program but haven't gotten it expunged yet cause its expensive and I am paying for school... I am suppose to start clinicals in spring and I am soooo nervous with having a record... Has anyone had this experience Ina ny state or in pa... What should I do?
At least in my state, state criminal background checks will only
However, background checks from the FBI will show any
That's why it will show up in federal check and not a state check.
If you are worried about how this affects your ability to continue in nursing, you may find it is worth getting your record expunged.
I have heard tell of nursing students making it through nursing school
, only to have their record slap them in the face when it's time to take the NCLEX.
