Hi, I have not done a background check on myself. I know that some background checks show more than others so I'm not even positive where to look for the correct information. And even with that doesn't healthcare people see everything or just what the public sees? I am not sure about that either. 

On the application for Georgia it specifically asks if you have had any arrests regardless of whether you were convicted of anything or not. I was not convicted in either case but if it shows what I was arrested for then that is what worries me. 

After submitting the application I received an email stating that my application will be thrown out if I do not submit any paperwork pertaining to these cases along with a letter of explanation. I never received any paperwork at all from my lawyers so I just called and obtained the court disposition papers and neither one of them mention DUI at all. 

I'm just a little confused about the whole situation and don't want to give too much information if unnecessary but don't want to be dishonest either.

Thank you for all your help

So I can’t offer legal advice but I can just speak through past experience what I did and what I would do to help out others in similar situation. With that being said I would do a live scan background check on yourself. That’s through the fbi and the same background check you do before you get licensed. That will tell you what is exactly on your record and what they, the BON, will see when you apply for your license. I would do that before you even submit your application: a self background check. If it shows both arrests on there I would be forthcoming, but if one or both are not on there I wouldn’t even mention it bc the BON won’t see the arrests. That background check is what they see. And if anything is on there that shouldn’t be on there, call the FBI lol. I called them and had that charge that said “expunged” next to it taken off my record even though it said expunged next to it. I don’t need people asking questions. Did another background check 2 weeks later and the charge was off. So I only have a reckless driving listed on my record. So long story short get yourself a background check through the live scan and I would go from there. Hope this helps!

How long do you have until your application will Ben thrown out? I would ask for more time so that you can get the required paperwork.

OK, so I did call the Ga BON and was told I have 30 days until my application is thrown out. She advised me to send what I have now and stay in touch so they are aware of me trying to deal with the matter. I sent them one court disposition while waiting on results from my background check.

My background check shows both arrests in 2012. They both say original charge of DUI. Charge 1 states DUI and blew .08 but later reduced to non-fingerprintable charge (driving without a license). Charge 2 states DUI but doesn't show what I blew and reduced to reckless driving.

So now I have to send the BON the other court disposition. Neither dispositions state DUI just the final results of a dismissal and driving without a license.

So, I also have to send a letter of explanation. Should I just state arrested for suspected DUI and then resolved as the dispositions say? I have had no other legal problems since these, in 7 years. Any more advice, please?

I've been wanting to get into traveling, but finding alot of hospitals are turning me down due to my misdemenor. I was charged with reckless operation (reduced from a DUI) in 2018, which I know is recent. I'm no longer on probation and it's the only charge I have. I'm from Ohio and currently applying for my Texas license. If this was to be expunged would I still have to tell employers about it, if it is not on my background check? And I'm curious if anyone has any experience with getting misdemeanors expunged in OH, sounds like it's called a sealed case instead. And any advice on how to start getting this cleared from my record would help a ton.

Thanks for any feedback 🙂

Hi guys, so to respond to ItalianRN_90 you won't be able to get any driving related offenses expunged. I'm from michigan and I tried to get my reckless driving expunged but am unable to do so. It's a law that any driving related misdemeanors aren't expungable. I believe it's the same for Ohio. And since that is your first offense ItalianRN_90 it shouldn't hamper you from getting a job I feel. Especially if it was reduced. I would get a personal background check on yourself and make sure it's reduced like the courts said it would be. I've had a lot of interviews and half the time they don't care to ask about my reckless driving. And if they do I wouldn't go into detail about how it was reduced from a DUI if you catch what I'm saying...anyways I wouldn't get down about it. You'll still be able to practice. 

 

To answer newbienursegrad...what I would do in that situation is since the first one appears on your record but states reduced to nonfingerprintable charge of "driving w/o a license", I would call the FBI and ask them to take that off your criminal background check. Which is what I did in one of my cases since it wasn't supposed to be on there. It takes about 2 weeks in my experience, I would then do another background check and make sure it's off. I would then leave that case out when filling out your application if it doesn't appear on your background check. For the second case I would be forthcoming about that case and let them know the circumstances. I think you mentioned that You submitted your first case already, along with the background check? If so just be forthcoming with everything and let them know the circumstances regarding both cases. Keep in touch with them about the status of your application and if they say anything about giving you a probationary license or some crap about restricting your license I would withdraw your application and maybe look at a different state. There's a handful of states that are pretty lenient when it comes to background checks like NY, and Colorado for example. BUT I believe you should be licensed especially if it's been over 5 years. It's a stressful process but don't let it drain you. Let me know!
