    as part of my conviction I did attend alcohol education classes. as far as a drinking problem, dont think so. I have probably been drunk a total of 5 times in my life. I dont sip on one in the evenings just to unwind. Not everyone that gets a dui is an alcoholic or a drunk, some are though and i understand that. I am a good person and think that I have a lot to contribute to the world of nursing. I dont think that people should be beaten down over one mistake. I have worked hard to get where I am and sacrificed, along with my daughter, and been the best person I can possibly be. Thank you for your input, it is greatly appreciated.

    thank you so much for your response. i am just so stressed out over a stupid mistake that could cost me 5 long yrs of school and my daughters future. i havent gotten much info in the way tenn. boards work, I am going to school in ky and all of our prep has been for the ky boards. i got the fingerprints done this past friday, i have asked an instructor to write me a letter of recommendation to go along with my letter of explanation. Hopefully that will help. Do you know the results of the apps your friends sent in to the boards? Good luck with yours!!!!!

    I made a very stupid mistake january of last year and got a dui (0.08) and I am now scared to death that I have worked my butt off for 5 yrs to get my RN degree and could be told no. It is the only thing on my record other than speeding in 1998. I have contacted the board and they said I have to send in a certified court disposition and self letter with my application. Has anyone else been through this and how was it handled? I am to the point that I cant even study for my last test because I am worried sick. Please help

    This does not pertain to jobs in east tennessee, although I have enjoyed reading it. I have a job interview at fort sanders and one at baptist and it gave me a little heads up. This is a question about the stupidist thing I have ever done in my life. I got a dui 0.08 in jan of 2006. I was not in nursing school at the time. I am not a drinker. My evals have all been excellent and I have definately learned from my mistake. I am applying for my RN boards in the next weeks and just wondering, how do I handle this situation?
