[quote=vegas2009;4223958]I don't know what the specific steps are for a DUI case is. Since I've never gotten one and I'm only a social drinker, very occasional. Very occasional means, maybe one to three drinks a year! In other words; even if I have some, I easily get drunk so, I limit my alcohol intake. I'm not used to the stuff. I don't understand the fascination with alcohol, but personally ---> I'd prefer to drink Pepsi or Sprite/7-UP anyday! Anyway. . .
I'm not sure if you're required to tell your instructors or the nursing program
, since it didn't happen while you're in lecture, lab, or clinical. But, you seriously, NEED to be honest with yourself though. Maybe you have a drinking problem? You have a lot more things to worry about other than the nursing program, don't you think?
If you don't have a drinking problem, what's the big deal in just doing what you need to do to "fix" your situation? I mean take all the AA classes required and etc., just to make your mistake go away?
I guess ethics plays a major part in your situation. Nursing schools are only required to check your criminal background for clinical site purposes. But, I doubt that they can penalize you for your DUI. Unless, ofcourse, you show up intoxicated -- that's a different story, isn't it?
Be honest with yourself. You'll know what to do next."
I am being honest with myself, I am going to have to face telling them sooner or later. My question was if I should wait till I'm done in court or do it before then. Anyways, I am a social drinker as well, I work hard and study hard and recieved a call from some friends that night, my problem was deciding to drive home after having some drinks. I should of just called a taxi. The problem I have is not drinking itself, but making a bad decision while I just happened to be drinking. I dont drink everday, week, or month for the that matter. I just read your post and found it not helpfull at all but rather very judgemental....anyways good day to you.
