My success story. California brn with a dui. - page 3

I just wanted to post some info about the California BRN and dui's since there isn't a lot of information out there. In my 3rd semester of school I made a stupid decision to drink and drive. I got... Read More

    Like yourself, I am an EMT-P soon to be RN, with a friend I grew up with facing 2 dui convictions in 2012, one may, one February and their license up for renewal in 2013, august. as you and I know as paramedics, we have automatic background checks at each juncture; yet I see questions in here as if RNs think they can "hide" a DUI. Don't they at least ask on license renewal "were you convicted of misdemeanor or dui in last 2 years"? And don't they do same background check we medics go through? And isn't LYING ABOUT IT then PERJURY and at least as bad as the DUI??????? I hope you have good outcome; you seem like great person who made an error once-won't "lecture" you about duis- you've been there in the blood and the mud; you know NOT TO DO IT! Good luck, and please reply-I fear my friend is going to lose her license and without an intervention, her life (or kill someone else) as she is denial about an obvious problem (.08 feb., .24 and busted C7 2nd one)!

    Unfortunately, the Appeals Court of California just this summer (2012) has ruled that a nurse can have her license revoked automatically upon conviction of even her first time DUI offense. The ramifications of this can't be under estimated. It means that you have lost your right to appeal to the BON, in effect- due process has been further eliminated. Naturally, if a license can now be revoked automatically, the chance of GETTING a license from the BON with a DUI has been essentially eliminated. An obvious benefit to the state is that they can drastically reduce the staff in the BON, since revocations will be automatic, eliminating the huge amount of BON staff required to process appeals from the thousands of nurses that receive DUIs every year. But we'll have to wait to see how this ruling becomes either challenged or enforced. (Also, in California- another body had made the determination that a teacher can have his certification (his livelihood) revoked also for a DUI.

    This is an atypical treatment of a DUI case regarding Board licensure.

    Anyone who was convicted of a DUI, did you guys try to fight the charges with the judge/DMV or did you just contest "no contest/guilty" and went on to pay the fines, do the community service and take DUI classes...or whatever the court required

    I'm in a similar situation and I had a couple questions for you... What was your BAC if you don't mind? I just graduated in Dec 2012 and have a DUI from 2010 that has been dissmissed by the court earlier this year. I was initially denied but allowed to still take the NCLEX after 3 months of waiting for my denial letter. I took the test but part of the agreement was that I would not know my results until my appeal is dealt with. I took the NCLEX April 4th and haven't heard anything yet. I tried to pierson vue trick and got the good pop up but I'm not sure if that works in my case. So frustrated just waiting... Is there a department at the Attorney General's office that will give updates? The BRN would not give me any information other than to wait... How long did it take to get your stipulated agreement or any contact from the AG?

    All that the "good pop-up" means is that you (probably) passed the NCLEX. Unfortunately, all you can do now is to wait to see if the BON will license you. I hope it won't take too long for them to give you an answer one way or the other.

    Best of luck.

    This post is for Sunflw137. I'm in the exact situation. I took my board like 2 weeks after you. I also signed a waiver for the BRN not to release the results. I did the Pearson Vue trick and it took me straight to credit card. Some how I wasn't supposed to find out results but I did anyway. I basically failed. So, I resubmitted my application to the board and my file was already in Endorcement. With the exception they had already sent my case to the general attorney. It's been almost 3 months now and I barely received my respondent letter to appeal. Hopefully from what I was told. The process is pretty fast once you get that letter. The only different is you passed and I didn't. Meaning when your case settle, the BRN will issue you your license and as for me I'll have to retake mine. Hope that help.

    Sunflw37 I know its been a while since you posted here but I am currently in the exact same situation.. I took NCLEX, stopped at 76 questions and got a good pop up. I'm wondering if that good pop was in fact "good" for you?.. I'm really freaked out and don't know what to make of it. Let me know how your situation went please. Thanks!

    I submitted my application to the BRN the first week of January. Got denied in March but chose to take the NCLEX and not find out my results. I took the NCLEX April 4th. My file was sent to the Attorney General's office mid April. I just last Saturday August 24th received my Statement of Issues from the AG. This is a written case against me from the AG stating that the board had denied me and I am appealing. My choices now are attempt to settle with the board or have an official hearing. From what I have heard it is pointless to schedule a hearing because they are so backlogged that it would not be until next March 2014! Hopefully within the next few weeks I will hear back about an offer from the board to settle.

    hi.... I studied long and hard for my nclex for 3 months and gave it in April. The day after giving my exam I thought I deserved to go have dinner and some wine with a friend since I had literally not stepped out of my house in months. I got dui that night, my blood alcohol came out to .18 which was impossible because I had 2 glasses of wine about 2 hours before driving with dinner, I wasnt in any way or form intoxicated when I got behind the wheel because if I was I would have never made the mistake to drive. I am a petite person but even so .18 is really high knowing I had wine 2 hours ago that too with food, so I decided to fight the case. My lawyer had an expert look at the report and he noticed that it was incorrect and had the report also took 2-3 months to come in, and I know for a fact that It wasn't correct plus I had passed all the sobriety tests. But 4 months later and extending court dates, my court date was today. For my lawyer to bring in her expert i needed to go to trial which meant a lot more money and time, and outcome changing were still slim so I chose to stick to the 1900$ 3 yr probation, 3 month dui classes, and 8 days workshop. Im really scared on wat to do now cuz a month after the dui i had gotten my result on my nclex and i had passed but the boards did not send me my license, its human nature to make mistakes and I obviously made a huge one. being a nurse has always been my dream and I know .18 is extremely high. Can u please give me some advice on what i should do about the boards, who I should talk to or what I need to provide to get my license. Also will I ever be able to get it?

    I had a midemeanor DUI from April 2012. My BAC was 0.12. I graduated in May 2013. I just received my ATT via e-mail from Pearson-Vue. With all obligations completed except probation, all fines paid and no other criminal history what should I expect next?

    Checked my "snail' mail today I'm all cleared by the BRN. However, this seems not to be the trend with most of the respondents of his post. It took the OP 6 months to test and 3 1/2 months for myself. In addition to all required documents to supplement the application for examination, I included a cover letter and resume related to my years of civic duty.
