If I have to be fingerprinted for RN school but have completed a first offender act in another state, will this come up if it happened 11 years ago?

Is there something that I need to do?

Most likely if you have been arrested for a crime but the charges were dismissed but you were fingerprinted then there is a very good chance that the prior incident will become known upon you being fingerprinted for the RN school that you have written about based upon my experience in such matters. Perhaps looking for an attorney in your locality on attorneypages.com will assist in the matter?
