The fraud charge will go towards credibility issues. Since you did not endanger the public like the person who resisted arrest, you should be fine. There was no victim per say which makes the difference.

I wonder if anyone could help me :S Basically I am stating my nursing degree in September and I have to undergo an Enhanced disclosure check. I recently received a VERBAL warning from the police however this went no further and no prosecution was put forward. I have bee told by the police not to disclose this but im worried that it will show up as im aware that a lot of things do even if they are verbal warnings?
Should i disclose this? I most definately do not want them to come across this and think I was being dishonest and withdraw my offer :S
I know it sounds silly but im acc losing sleep over this. My verbal warning was for obstruction of police. Please help I have to fill out this form this week

Make sure you tell them in advance if there is a possibility that anything might show up, I made the mistake of thinking something was spent and wouldnt show up but it did and because i had not declared it I was instantly dismissed from my degree course.

Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me, i am due to begin an adult nursing degree and i have currently been waiting 4 weeks on my police check and it still hasnt been returned to me, i am sure everything will be ok on it as i have never been in any sort of trouble, my only problem is i moved house 4 and a half years ago and i cant remember the exact dates so i just put the month and year- it may even be a month out i.e i put march but it could have been february, will this go against me when they are tracing me at previous addresses? it may sound ridiculous to some people but i am very worried :(

Hi everyone,

Just updating you on my post of 2010 regarding a caution i received while studying a nursing course ( Caution for Battery and damage of a blanket).

2years ego i was really frustrated and low in mood because of the caution i received from the police. To be honest i understand the government trying to reduce crime rate but i don't think it is positive for people to be cautioned and details of it to come up on an enhanced CRB check all the individual's life. If the government believe that people learn from the mistake then why leave a punishment stay on the person's CRB all his/her life? Doesn't this going to make someone of us even worst since we already know that we got a caution that is never going to be removed from our CRB? is this really lowering the crime rate? In my opinion since receiving a caution, i feel scared to commit a crime but on the other hand i feel like people are looking at me as if i was a stranger, a violent person while i'm not. I'm a loving and caring person. Everybody makes mistake and so do i.

I learned from this experience but it pointless for it to stay on my CRB all my life and hunting me as if i was a bad person. why the government does not even try to protect those not repeating crime to be treated equally? e.g.no disclosing what we have done years ego but only if this pose a "high or very high" risk to vulnerable people, im talking here people put in a barred list. Anyway, i was just trying to explain how i feel.

By the way, after receiving the police caution i disclosed it to the university as being honest leads people to trust you. I sincerely was sorry what i had done, it was out of my character and everybody makes mistake. The uni summoned me to a panel where i had to present them with a good character reference. The panel examined the circumstance leading to the caution and decided that i should be kept on the course but in one condition, writing an essay on nurses' behavior outside and inside the clinical setting. I felt so relieved on the day because i thought it was the end of my career. I appreciate what they have done to me and promised that i will not commit a crime again.

I'm now a qualified nurse and i'm happy to take on responsibility as a nurse and devote my life to help vulnerable patients to recover and live a healthy and happy life. Note: I'm now doing some job hunt and will keep you up to date with whats going on with employers when i will have to disclose the caution to them. Pray for me!

Do not give up if you get a caution, the best policy is to disclose it. Be honest and keep hope alive. Bear in mind 1/4 of the population will have a police caution so people that will judge you and don't give you an opportunity will probably end up with a caution someday because nobody knows what the future holds ( I don't wish this to happen to anyone!)

Thanks for reading this,

With love xx

Hi All,

I am a 2nd year student nurse. My student loan and bursary was stopped just at the beginning of my 2nd year because i changed universities. Due to hardship, i did some work for an agency but i didn't inform the housing benefits people because I thought it wasn't a 'proper' job and i was going to stop when my bursary got sorted. Anyway, they've asked me to pay back an overpayment of £300 and they want to give me a caution but i don't know whether to accept it or not. They say if i don't accept it, they will take me to court. I'm also scared that though its not a police caution, if I accept it, it may affect my studies or future job prospects. Please advise me. Don't know what to do.

I have just received an offer for a midwifery course at university starting this year. It has been so difficult to get this decision and I have worked so hard the past year on my access course. I am 26 and a mother of a 4 year old. 6 years ago I was convicted of drink driving, no licence or insurance, a stupid silly mistake that I have learned from. I was given a ban for 20 months and a fine. I have no other convictions but two arrests with no further action from when I was about 15-17 I was told these would not be on my record by the police one was deception of property and one I was involved in a scuffle. I was a teen in with the wrong crowd and completely regret that bit of my past , however was so long ago and shouldn't and doesn't reflect my character now. On the selection day I did not declare these as I was sure anything past five years is deemed spent and in no need to declare. Now I feel I have not done the right thing after reading this page and do not know what to do, I have not yet accepted their offer or taken part of the enhanced crb that will follow shortly but have already signed the declaration at my selection day. He's anyone got any advise? Shall I contact crb helpline? Or write a letter to the panel? I will be absolutely heart broken of they withdraw their offer. Today should be the most happiest exciting day, yet I can't enjoy it with this hanging over my head.

Please some advice and what you think the university will do from here on...

Greatly appreciated.

For positions involving work with children and vulnerable adults, an Enhanced Disclosure CRB Check will be required. This is to ensure that anyone who presents a known risk to vulnerable groups is prevented from working with them.
If your organisation is eligible to request Enhanced Disclosure CRB Checks then the Experian Background Checking service will allow you to do so. Not all positions are eligible for Enhanced Disclosure. Click here to check the CRB eligibility guidance document from the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).

The Registered Nurse CV should be designed to generate interest in your application from potential future employers. It is a venue that allows you to tell why you want to work for an employer, and what it is that you can bring to the table that would make them want to hire you. In addition to that, an exemplary Registered Nurse CV will convince those reading it to want to know more about you.
