About 5 years ago I was arrested for domestic violence (no physical abuse took place at all between my husband and I, it was a disagreement And my brilliant idea was to get the police over to mediate-it was more a matter of the officers asking one of us to leave and neither of us would...being brats I suppose, that really bit us in the butts because they decided to just take us both in) we were fingerprinted and everything and since it was a Saturday, you guessed it- we had to stay over the weekend. Well once we sat down with the DA separately) we told her what happened and she basically laughed and said okay we will drop it to disturbing the peace (infraction) and you will plead no contest, get slapped with a 50 dollar fine (but not have to pay it because of time served)
fast forward 5 years. I was a clinical care extender 3 years ago for one year (internship within a hospital livescan required) I've worked in 2 hospitals as a CNA -livescans were required cNA certificate required me to go through ca department of public health. Have worked in skilled nursing facilities background checks were required. Now keep in mind I always list the charge on every application (not the arrest tho) I do this because like 4 years ago I applied to a hardware store and didn't list it and it came back as falsification of my application.i had no idea infractions were considered misdenors. So now I list it on everything.
My my question is, I just was accepted to nursing school, with the BRN, do they only see the charge , or do that see the arrest? The arrest was domestic violence and that just sounds so bad, how ever the charge was dropped/ reduced to a lesser charge of disturbing the peace. I'm wondering if the livescan check is more detailed than the one that's conducted for CNAs, I also wonder if it will even show since I already work in hospitals and haven't had any problems.
Anyone with itch insight or similar experience please let me know.real information please, not guesses or opinions. I already drive myself crazy guessing. Thanks everyone.
