I just graduated nursing school. I am distraught because I had a drug addiction in my early 20s after my father was murdered and it caused me a TON of issues. But alas I went to treatment and have been clean since 2007. I did get into an abusive relationship with the guy I met right before I went to treatment, we got clean togehter, but turned out to be a really, really bad relationship. He choked me when I was pregnant and well the judge nearly threw the book at him in Arizona. Well we moved to kansas, long story soo short, and I get into a fight with him and because we were in a new town and they didn't know the history I got into trouble, which is how he is, he is charming and narcissistic and so IDK I guess they took his word over mine. this was in 2012. Well I got that domestic battery expunged and it didn't come up,but guess what a contempt of court charge related to it did. so I still have to mention it anyways. Also, my other charges were set aside, which is AZ expungement, kind of. Well I went through a lot of trouble to make sure they were reported correctly cause our BON says that if theyre set aside then thats the same as expunged and not reportable. But they still came up and so I have to explain them. Which is soo difficult to do, but I finally have all my documents and references and the fact that I have worked with kids at a school for 2 years and I work in an ICU now, etc. I perused this website looking for anyone that has a few domestic violence charges from many years ago to see if they had luck with their BON, but I dont see anything like this. Can anyone tell me if they have had a similar experience?

I am 44. I got my RN licence 7 years ago. I have a misdemeanor assault r/t fighting with a security guard while trying to shoplift from when I was 19 years old. BON in Washington state has no problems with it. Since then I have also been approved by a school to be their lead art docent and 2 jobs. What sucks is that I always have to mention it in the paperwork for the background check and that comes up every 3 years. I recommend getting a job with a large company.  I got one with a small company and when I have to go to the office, they all know what I did when I was young.

If the record is expunged and does not show up on my background check with the FBI do I need to disclose this? I live in NM and it states we do not have to disclose expunged record unless it shows up and I am wondering if anyone else has had this experience.
