Dear Nurse Beth,

Am I required to disclose that I was in Diversion to a potential employer? I was told that upon successful completion of the program that all records would be destroyed. The potential employer is a government agency.

Dear Was in Diversion,

You are required to answer questions truthfully.

So for example, if you were asked on an application if you ever had restrictions on your license, then you would have to answer yes.

Even records that have been expunged are discoverable depending how deep the employer digs.

Falsifying an application is grounds for dismissal, even if they find out later down the road.

Don't volunteer information, but do tell the truth if asked. Then you never have to worry about being found out or concealing a secret.

Best wishes,

Nurse Beth
