A: Under California law, having an expunged record doesn't completely erase the conviction; licensing boards like the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians may still consider it. While having an expunged record may improve your chances, each application is evaluated on a case-by-case basis, considering various factors like the nature of the conviction, rehabilitation, and time elapsed since the offense. You should consult an attorney for personalized advice and potentially disclose your expunged record when applying, as failure to disclose can result in further complications.
