Will my expunged records show in fingerprint check for BON?

  1. Hi I have a question regarding this issue. I was convicted of a crime when I was still a minor in the state of Nevada but had it expunged from the court. I just went to do a fingerprint background check that used the same FBI databases via National Credit Databases that the BON uses (as I was told) and my report came back with no criminal records shown. I am just worried that even though the report I gotten back is negative for any records that once my BON runs my prints that they'll see my expunged records somehow. Can anyone let me know whether my personal check of my own prints will yield the same results for the BON when they run their own check? Thank you!

    Further info; never had a problem getting a job in high end luxury retail after having employers running background checks nor had a problem getting into nursing school/ clinical rotations with my background checks.

    In the state that I am familiar with, everything shows up, regardless of being "expunged". However, juvenile records don't apply as a detriment.

    But what if I have already done a live scan of my fingerprints via FBI database myself at a vendor that works with the BON in the state and nothing shows up on that?

    I have a question in 2003 I was arrested for sales of a controlled substance and driving under the influence. I was place on 3 years of felony probation. Make a long story short I took a plea bargain advised to me by my public defender on the drug possession and sales. I had never been in trouble previously nor after my arrest in 2003. I successfully completed my three year probation and three out patient drug rehabs. The Judge was very impressed that I completed every requirement and at my last court date she entered a new plea of not guilty and dismissed my case pursuant to section code 1203.4 (CA State). In 2014 I went back to college to get into the Nursing program all I need are 3 classes. For some reason I thought I should let the Nursing department know that I had a prior record due to the fact that they do a background check. I was notified yesterday that I am not eligible per the Head of the Nursing program because I am a liability since I had a previous criminal drug charge. However the case was dismissed meaning I have no record. It was dismissed! Does anyone have any suggestions? I am not a quitter and I have been in the Medical Filed for most of my life as a Medical Assistant and I am a licensed Phlebotomist. The Phlebotomy Licensing department knows of my past record and still sends me my License. I really need some advice please.

    I was arrested 3 years ago for going too fast in a work zone. The policeman on duty banged my car with his hand as if to tell me to slow down, and I kept on driving. Another pair of police stopped me, and I had neglected to renew my license. I was arrested for leaving the scene of an injury, and driving without a license. The case was dismissed. However, if I google my name, the arrest is the first thing that comes up. Will that catch up with me?

    Run your own background checks. It's costly, but may answer some of your questions. If they don't ask, I wouldn't willingly give that information.

    I would say that 1) Phlebotomists do not have access to medications. 2) Your admission that you had Felony drug charge. 3) If the school has more applicants than slots for students, they would likely chose the prospective student without a "history".
    Is it fair? Who is to say? I realize that your case was dismissed. However, with three outpatient drug rehabs that raises red flags.
    I will say that CA is very different than most states as far as dealing with criminal charges and nursing licensure.

    Who was injured? I hope not the policeman who hit your car. Are you in school, or thinking of applying?
