Thank you for your answer. My follow up question would be a situation where this cost me a job.
I applied for a med license in NE and because of this question it cost me the job. It took an additional 2 moths for them to clear my license, which kept me from starting on my start date and the hospital canceled my contract, because of this delay. Also, second, hypothetical at this juncture,(as far as I know) but also a real possibility.
Given two equally qualified candidates for a job, both interview
equally well, employer looks at both and decides to hire the other based on a clean record. With malpractice insurance being so high and the investment hospital's make in their doctors the board or lost mitigation is going to error on the side of caution given both candidates are of equal skills and fit well with their piers. So,,, this question could unfairly disqualify me from certain employment opportunities, even though it was completely bogus. Would there be any possible way to strike this from my record and have sealed so no one would find it? Yes, I do not believe in lying but something that never should have occurred from ", not completely stopping at a stop sign," has caused undo anguish for the last 5yrs of my life, even though it was made under false pretenses.
