Expungement for Nurses

Registered Nurses

Anyone who is currently applying to a nursing school to become a Registered Nurse, or applying for licensing with the state board, must know that a criminal conviction on your record will prevent you from getting your license, and will likely prevent you from getting into a nursing program. But, there is hope because most criminal offenses may be expunged by the court where you were originally convicted.

The Law Office of Ben Mironer has an amazing proven track record of success in getting expungments granted, and even commonly persuading the court to terminate probation early and expunge at the same time. The key is that you must get an attorney that has done many expungements in the past, and knows what things the court is looking for to grant the request. The attorney must also be aware about how the expungement will impact your goals of becoming a Registered Nurse.

The Board of Nursing has very strict guidelines and regulations for licensing, and a thorough background check is conducted for every applicant. The worst thing someone can do is lie on their application, by failing to disclose a prior criminal conviction. This is considered an act of dishonesty and “moral turpitude.” This type of conduct is clear grounds to deny licensing.

However, once a matter is expunged from an applicant’s record, then the applicant can explain to the Board that the conviction has been dismissed in the interest of justice. This can be described in a positive light, and the Board can’t legally deny an applicant based on an old conviction that has been expunged.

As for current Registered Nurses, an expungement may be a necessity for finding employment in the private sector. Most potential employees do background checks, and tend to pick applicants that do not have any criminal record. The key is that once your matter is expunged, you will no longer be required by law to specify that you have ever been convicted of a crime. Your case will be dismissed, once the motion to expunge is granted by the court.

The Law Office of Ben Mironer wants to help professionals to achieve their goals and dreams, which is why we take our expungement cases very seriously. We believe that everybody is entitled to a second chance, so we work closely with our clients to understand their needs and to help them clear up old mistakes.
