EMERGENCY!! DUI problems!!

  1. ok i got a big problem.

    i recently graduated from ASU n was preparing for the NCLEX exam.

    i already got an ATT so all i had to do was setting up the exam date.

    i got extreme DUI last weekend n looking for lawyer now. its my first time ever.

    has anybody had similar problem?

    anybody know that even though i pass the test, i not gonna be able to get a license?

    omg i am so scared.
    i already sent an email to BON asking these questions but i was just wondering if u guys know something about this situation.

    questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history?
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a dui or other related charges?
    • what happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
    • can i go to nursing school and/or be licensed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
    these are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. the only reliable source of information is your state board of nursing.
    please refer to this thread for other information:

    good luck.
