Dwi

  1. Hi,

    I recently recieved a DWI. I tested right at the .08 level. I was wondering what sorts of professional consequences I might face (e.g. license suspension, hiring problems, etc.)?

    Hi,

    I'm sorry to hear that. I believe we cannot give legal advice on this medium. Perhaps your BON could better answer your questions?

    Sorry, I don't have more information for you.

    i have known nurses who had a dwi and they retained the license but they went into a rehab or started on some kind of program
    however i have known others who have lost their license, perhaps it was not their first, i didn't know all the details
    good luck

    questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history?
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a mip, dui, or other related charges?
    • what happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
    • can i go to nursing school and/or be licensed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
    • will i be able to go to nursing school with a criminal record?
    • what can happen if i receive a mip/dui/dwi or other charge while still in school?
    these are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. the only reliable source of information is your state board of nursing.
