Yes! It was a bit of a hassle but I got it done and then was allowed to sit for the boards. I had an arrest for a very dumb reason and it was dismissed right away in court. If anyone is interested, I'll tell you at the bottom.
I had to obtain the court documents, meaning I had to go to the courthouse. I went to the police department and obtained the police report. I also had to write a statement of the events. Then, I simply had to mail all of that to the BON.
Yes, it delayed my eligibility to sit for the NCLEX, but I was studying for it during that whole time anyway.
It may seem like a big deal now, but it's really not.
Ok, so what had happened was.. lol
I got into a car accident. Minor, but big enough to call the police. (No injuries.) I gave the cops my license and.....IT CAME BACK THAT MY DRIVER'S LICENSE WAS SUSPENDED!!!! WHAT????
They told me I hadn't done my emissions test on my old car that I NO LONGER OWNED. I HAD received an emmision notice in the mail but ignored it bc I didn't own the car any more. (If you don't do your car emmision test, your license gets suspended.)
Ok, so....I was living with my MIL. We have the SAME 1st and last name so I often didn't receive my own mail bc my MIL just didn't give it to me. I'm assuming the suspension notice was sent there and I didn't know it.
They handcuffed me but we're very nice. Let me keep my phone and call my dad bc he was Assistant Chief of Police in the town over and they knew him. So I sat alone in a big room for like 20 minutes after finger printing then left.
Went to the court date. Dismissed immediately.
