A few months ago, I went to an appeal to get approval to take my NCLEX in California without any restrictions on my license, because a misdemeanor in the past. I just got approved. But unfortunately, during the time I was waiting for the boards decision I got charged for a DUI, blew 0.08. I'm awaiting court date right now and there's a good chance I will be convicted. Should I notify the Board now or wait until after court. Any advice or feedback would help. Thanks.
You're probably not going to like what I have to say, but here goes.
For one thing, you'll need to notify the BON (within two weeks in my state, your mileage may vary) of the fact that you were arrested and charged. If you're convicted of the DUI, you'll need to notify them of that too.
I hope you take these lessons to heart and reflect on them often in the coming weeks and months. I'm not trying to dump on you, but being a nurse requires maturity and insight, and these are traits you need to work on. Best of luck to you.
