Hello all

i made a HUGE mistake and drove after a couple drinks back in November.  I was pulled over and blew a 0.11. It was my first (and LAST) offense.  The court part is over.  I got 6 months probation.  I was informed that self reporting is much better than having the board find out on their own, so that is what I did.  I’m currently just waiting to hear back from them.  I’ve turned in my original statement, and my court docs.  I’m an LPN right now, and just about finished with the RN portion of school.  I’m a nervous wreck that my license is going to be taken away from me, maybe even forever!  Hopefully I’m overreacting.  Does anyone have any experience with the Illinois board with a dui offense?  
PLEASE don’t lecture me of the dangers of drinking and driving.  I have never felt more remorse for anything in my entire life.  I live with the guilt daily.

Are you still working and going to school? If so, your probation may be over before you graduate.  In my state, a first DUI gets a pass as long as the probation is completed,

Yes I’m still working and going to school.  My probation is supposed to be up in July and I graduate in May.  I’m really hoping the BON doesn’t do anything.  I still haven’t heard anything back from them.  I don’t know how long it takes them, but I’m hoping this is a good sign.

Hi!  Yes I just found out a couple days ago that my case was closed.  No reprimand or anything on my license.  Sooooo thankful!
