I am a recent LPN graduate. I graduated with a 3.62 GPA, had an awesome post-graduate internship at a hospital, and passed my boards with flying colors. The hospital where I was interning liked me so much, they offered me a position. 3 days before I was supposed to start orientation, they called me and said they had to revoke my offer because of a misdemeanor I received in 2008. Not only is this embarassing, but my heart is broken. I had bounced a $15, yes thats it, check and it went to court. I was 19 years old, and plead guilty and just paid it. I had no idea this "little" check would come in the way of my career. I have tried to hire a lawyer to get it expunged, but no one can do it because it was within the past 5 years.
I need a job in the worst way and cant find one anywhere. Any advice or helpful tips. Is this misdemeanor going to affect all potential employment opportunities? I am a good person, and worked really hard in school- I can't believe this has happened.
