    Currently dealing with same issue. I graduated 12-12 and after all paperwork sent to tx BON I recieved a letter stating I needed to send court documents and a hand written letter discussing incident. I thought since the charge occurred in 2000 when I was 18 and now 2013 @ 30 y/o it wouldn't be passed on to further investigation but it was.

    Now I was told to wait a minimum of 4 months to I hear back anything.

    The charge was "tampering with evidence" = I tore up a document when I was arrested.

    I have no idea what to do for money, living expenses nor what to expect. I hope it all gets processed and I can move on with the rest of my class and pass my NCLEX and find a job!!!

    so frustrating!

    I'm about to file my declaratory order prior to applying to the nursing program at Brookhaven. My question has to do with what to actually declare. I'm realize that the BON does a FBI background check that goes all the way back. I am 39 and most recent charge was a DUI in 2001. Even further back I had an assault charge in 1993 which was literally a fight in the locker room in high school. These are both charges that are required to be declared to the BON, however when I ran my own FBI background check and no records showed up. I am definitely planning on disclosing the DUI, however the assault charge because of how long ago it was, would I be shooting myself in the foot disclosing something that does not show up on a FBI check?

    Did you do a fingerprint background check or just a name background check?
    Name background checks will not show everything you have on your record. My name background check under Texas DPS shows I have nothing on my record. My fingerprint background check shows what is actually on my record, and this is what the TXBON background check will show as well. I'm in a position where I have a juvenile charge from 1997 (I'm 34 now) and a recent pending charge (4/14) for an argument (misunderstanding someone else put there nose in) my husband and I got in. From all the research I've done, unless it is a expunged or a sealed charge you MUST disclose it and send a declaratory order for each offense to the TXBON. If it is not disclosed then you can be seen as "untruthful" and "non-trustworthy". I've also found that even if it is expunged or sealed by a court document and it shows up with out you not disclosing it, it can still be seen as you trying to hide it. Best case is to disclose it and pray for mercy. I'm in the process for filling for sealing of my juvenile offense, but today I received the notice to go ahead and start the fingerprint background check process for entrance to my school. I thought I might have enough time to get it sealed and cleared and I would only have to disclose my recent transgression.
    Good Luck.

    If anyone has gone through any of this please feel free to give advice.

    So I guess long story short is I would go ahead a disclose everything.

    In my state we don't have to report if the conviction was before age 18.

    Maybe your fight was before you were 18?

    If not, disclose it.

    Hope it all goes well for you!
