Hi. I'm an aspiring nursing student and the the B.O.N. in my state of Pennsylvania has recently moved their paper RN license registrations to a completely online method called PALS. Bad Request
Before, on the paper applications for all health related applications including nursing through the Department of State in PA, under the legal questions for the question regarding "Have you been convicted (found guilty, or pled guilty or pled nolo contendere), received probation without verdict or accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD), as to any criminal charges, felony or misdemeanor, including any drug law violations?" it would additionally say right under this question: "Note: You are not required to disclose any ARD or other criminal matter that has been expunged by order of a court."
I'm wondering. When you register through the new online PALS system for an RN license or when doing the initial registration for the NCLEX exam through the BON in PA, does it still note in the legal questions section that "you are not required to disclose any ARD or other criminal matter that has been expunged by order of a court" or something similar to this effect? Has anyone that recently registered for the NCLEX through the PA BON online via PALS or registered for the RN license through the PALS system via the PA BON seen anything to this effect?
Any responses would be much appreciated. Thank you.
