I'm a board certified RN..recenlty received a reckless driving charge with probation...trying to find another nursing job. I have the feeling that I'm not getting any callbacks because of the charge.
As far as checking yes, I think that would depend completely on the question that is being asked.
You may be able to seal your record. Was adjudication withheld? Have you completed your term of probation? If you answered yes to both of those questions, I recommend you contact an attorney and get your record sealed. I am attaching the link to the FDLE website that will give you information on the process.

Honesty is the best practice. Always. Read the question asked on appliation carefully as many applications ask the question sometimes regarding felonies or misdemeanors or any crimes / charges/ indictments (etc.) differently. Some also may have exclusions for crimes not related to filed of work or traffic citations. There are short / long term possible range of issues that can arise by not being honest on Questions on application and signing the application stating that everything in it is true.
Consult an attorney in your jurisdiction to determine your rights, responsibilities and the appropriate action(s) you may wish to undertake. Answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
In Florida Reckless Driving is a second degree misdemeanor, a criminal offense punishable by up to 60 days in jail. Read the question carefully and try answering with full candor, if you are unsure how to answer contact an attorney for advice.
The good news is that if you were not adjudicated guilty, and you have never been adjudicated guilty of a criminal offense, you may be able to get your record sealed.
