Compact state RN license with previous DUI?

by kayemgee kayemgee (New) New

5 years ago I got a DUI. It is the only thing on my record and has since been expunged. I have been able to get a single state RN license in AZ and NM but am considering travel nursing and was wondering if I would ever qualify for a multi-state license with my past misdemeanor. Has anyone successfully gotten a multi-state license with a previous conviction?

Which state are you a resident of?

Have you applied for multi-state privileges on your AZ license?

No not yet. I'm trying to find out if I'm even eligible because of the misdemeanor.

As you haven't applied for multi-state privileges that should be your first step.  Having the DUI shouldn't be an automatic disqualifier.
