In 2007, I was charged for possession of alcohol in public, which was a petty misdemeanor. I was recently approved by the state's board of nursing to take the nclex (after showing proof of court records and an explanation) and successfully passed and received my license.
Now that I'm filling out applications for jobs, and even for apartments, Im wondering if I should disclose information about my petty misdemeanor when the applications specifically asks for felonies or misdemeanors? I would really hate it if my cousin and I get rejected for an apartment we are trying to get, after being found with a positive criminal background because I checked "NO" on the application that asked if I was ever charged for a felony or misdemeanor. Obviously, I checked "NO" simply because a "petty misdemeanor" is neither a felony nor a misdemeanor.
I ran a check on the BeenVerified website, and nothing showed up. But I also ran a check on our government website which came out positive, but clearly states its a Petty misdemeanor.
