    You should petition the criminal court pursuant to PC 1203.4 to expunge your conviction. You worked hard to successfully complete probation early and the expungement will complete your efforts. Although the conviction is expunged, you will be required to disclose it on your nursing application. The BRN will consider the expungement as mitigation evidence when evaluating your application. For more information with regards to additional mitigation evidence to submit with your application, review the BRN's website under rehabilitation criteria or contact a nurse licensing attorney. Even if your application is denied, you still have due process rights to appeal the BRN's decision that is when your "rehabilitation evidence" will be important. Good Luck!
