    I was 18 when I got arrested for credit card fraud. The judge dropped my felony to a misdemeanor put me on summary probation for 3 years. I expunged my record when I was 21. Will this affect my employment opportunities in the medical field? As a caregiver or CNA?

    Absolutely agree with Joy - some agencies will find it and care on a background search. Others will not.

    I would not spend money on education without some sort of decision that you can get a license.
