I was arrested one month after turning 18 for petty larceny, but the charges were dropped. By the time I get out of school and start job hunting with my LPN license, it will be a little over 2 years since the arrest occurred.

    If the charges were dropped, it won’t affect you at all.

    What they look at is CONVICTIONS, not arrests.

    The you were not convicted, so you are okay.

    It can, but it is not very likely. It is more likely that you will receive a probationary period or have to attend extra classes or seminars. The fact that you’ve kept your nose clean for 2 years does weigh in your favor. Don’t hide that this arrest occurred. That is where you will be harmed most – hiding the truth.

    not from becoming a nurse no, or listens that is, may hinder you from being hired though,
    and you proble wont be able to get a job at a school
