I have 2 dui's, one pending and one conviction. the second one was before I started looking into nursing. 2 years ago. Since then I have not been to court for the second it keeps getting postponed. Anyway since then I have been active in a AA program, completed the required treatment by the state, as well as done extra to document my recovery. It wasn't until I changed my life that I realized I would like to be a nurse and help people in the recovery field as one. I have maintained a 3.8 GPA in all prereqs., been on the honor society as a ambassador for the school. I have not been court ordered to rehabilitate, but decided a life change was needed. My school says the dui will not stop them from accepting me, but clinicals may be an issue, and the bon for ga and the counselor I work with handles nurses says if rehabilitation is documented things should go o.k.
Has anyone else had experiences similar to this with the GA BON and with nursing schools
