I am in AZ. If you try to apply for licensure here with a DUI, you are going to go through a hellish experience, and won't be sure until the end if you will get a license. From my personal experience of 25 years without a blemish, or even any traffic violations, my misdemeanor DUI cost me license. To keep it, the program is:
*4-6 weeks of INPATIENT rehba, based upon THEIR addiction assessment, that YOU pay for.
*Sign an affidavit to swear that you 'are an addict'.
*AA 3x/weeek for 90 days, then 2x/week for a year- with written prooof from a fellow attendee that you did attend, sent to BON
*No alcohol for 3 years with random testing thais about $100 a pop
*Monthly physician and psych evals to determine whether you are impaired
*Your employer must submit 3 monthsly forms, for 3 years- attendance records, work evaluation- is their indication of drug use, and missing drugs at work, etc. (IF you can get a job or keep the one you had)
*The list goes on and on.
Did I mention that I have been a nurse for 25 years, in 3 states, never a complaint, and with a prior clear MVR?
Good luck to you all.
