Odds of getting my license!?

Hi everyone!

I would really appreciate some insight from anyone who’s gone through this or going through this!

So when I was younger, around 8 years ago I got arrested for domestic violence while arguing drunk with an ex boyfriend - DUMB - cops called, etc. All charges were dismissed and I was not convicted of anything, no felony. Nothing. I also got arrested for a public disturbance charge - same outcome, no criminal record, all dismissed, etc.

Fast forward to now - went through LPN school, passed my boards, disclosed all arrests and outcomes, supplied supporting paperwork/narratives/dispositions etc. Now waiting to hear from the board.

Needless to say, I am so nervous about what they’re going to say! I’m terrified of them subjecting me to RAMP. I’m terrier of them keeping my license from me. I have plans to start RN school soon, will this still happen a second time around? Should I get my record expunged since I was never convicted of anything?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Also, I am in NJ! Thanks

Did you hear back from them? I have heard and read conflicting things on whether or not you are convicted. I am in a similar boat.

Yes I did! I got my license! I just had to pay a fine. 

Congratulations! You had to pay a fine to the BON? Also, I know you said the charges were dismissed, if you don’t mind me asking what does your public record say was the outcome of the charge? For mine it says “disposed by prosecutor”.
