Misdemeanor Petty theft charge almost 7 years ago and obtaining medical license for resident physician (intern = 1st year) ?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Lincoln, NE

Had a petty theft charge related to vending machines. Charge was ultimately- Dropped -and case was -Dismissed- secondary to fulfilling agreement with DA. Never was arrested or booked, never plead, never convicted. On dispo it says "Case action report: No Information...has dropped all charges due to completed deferred prosecution.

I was eligible for expungement and had that done about 2 years ago, Did some background checks personally and obtained FBI record, all show no criminal record.
It was a big mistake and I learned from it instantly and have not been in any trouble since the incident about 7 years ago.

Would I run into any delays/trouble obtaining my temporary medical license in Nebraska, Grew up there, have family there and am hoping to obtain a position there in the future.
