How does a DUI impact your RN license? A staff member got one this weekend, and I am secretly wondering if she will have to report this to the state board and/or the hospital.

it depend on where you live. in the state of california a dui may not necessarily lead to immediate termination for a licensed nurse, but it does require them to disclose pending actions triggered by the arrest. though the licensing board my not revoke the individual's nursing license, different hospitals may have opposing policies regarding their employees' dui charge, and may still lead to termination. anyone pursuing a nursing license may have more problems. however, every case is different. a dui specialist may be able to assist your co-worker, to ensure that she has the best chance of protect her license.
