Hey everyone, I'm currently a SRNA who started school with two previous dwi arrests, both of which were reduced to obstructions of highway. I am currently on probation and have no problems while in school. I am a straight A student in my program right now. Before applying to the CRNA program I had already told the school my history and they had no problem with it either.
I had also self reported myself to the board of nursing as I am supposed to. The issue I'm having now is that the Nursing Board has, after many months, decided to press Formal Charges on me while I am in the CRNA program.
So I have two questions:
1. Does anyone know if the hospitals and anesthesia groups that I will need to do my internship under care about having formal charges?
2. How bad are formal charges really?
Basically if I can't continue my program I'm in such an amount of debt AND I wouldn't be able to get a job afterwards because of the formal charges on my license that my life is basically suspended indefinitely. In my opinion I'd have to start over for good in life and just choose another career even though I'm so close to realizing my goals.
