new lpn grad old dui messed up paperwork

  1. im a new lpn grad as of last week, now im stressed got a dui ungraded misdemeanor given ard and 6 months unsupervised probation a few years ago, i have never been arreseted other than this and submitted app to take boards and went to get court documents to send the bon and the city i lie in cant find them they told me this could take weeks, smh im so depressed so i went to the probation officer i had and she said they had no record of me completing my program and paying my fines, so i have been running around for 2 days trying to get this info. this is another hold up and it will take her a while to clear my name with the courts, im so stressed i dont know what to do, im lost any suggestions, i cant test until they get these documents and review them, and who knows when this will be. the court paper they printed me out says awaiting ard completion, which i have already done so i cant send that to the bon, so stressed

    Now you play the waiting game..... Not much else you can do. Hopefully once they DO get all your paper work figured out you won't have any trouble getting licensed. I had a DUI on my record before I graduated with my LPN (and even though I apparently didn't satisfactorily complete my probation) I still didn't have a problem getting licensed. I then went straight into the RN program and unfortunately got ANOTHER DUI (they take the 2nd REAL serious so DO NOT get another) Then I had to wait 2 years to get licensed! So if you have to wait a couple more weeks just try and relax. Just means more study time for the NCLEX!

    P.S. Just realized you posted this like 7 weeks ago... hope they got everything figured out by now

    Thanks I did get everything resolved passed my boards and got my license unrestricted so I am happy and I learned my lesson I have designated drivers or I catch a cab. God has blessed me and im ready
