Hi I am a 26 year old and have been a nurse for almost 3 years now. I just got a DUI a couple of days ago. I am really worried about my nursing license. This is my first offense ever. I haven't ever been in trouble before and need some advice on what to do next. Do I contact the ABN and let them know now or do I tell them when it is time to renew? Please help!! Is there anyone out there on this message board who has had a DUI in alabama and how did it go as far as your present employer? What kind of fines did you have to pay? I have heard that you can do classes to help but what kind of classes, how much are they, and how often do they meet?

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:
