    For those of you that have this reoccuring problem...You have a bigger problem than the board going on. I would suggest looking at your drinking history and check out the Alcholics Anonymous site

    I sure hope this is not where your concerns end.
    Drinking and driving is not smart.

    "4. Never forget: The board is nearly impossible to deal with: they are not your understanding types, and they are not your friends."

    Hmmm.....not so sure how I feel about that one. My friend had NINE felony convictions, drug related, used to be a prostitute...but turned her life around and decided to go for NS. She first had to go before the board to get her CNA. They approved that....but she had to go in front of a panel. I would say it is too much a sweeping generalization that they are not the "understanding types." You never know.

    I would continue on with your schooling, but get a lawyer for SURE.

    I don't mean to scare you but, I know a DUI in california is serious. I work in home health and a fellow RN was fired for having a DUI as soon as the agency found out. I think you should get a consultation with an attorney. Have you looked at the california board of nursing website?

    I don't believe the OP stated that she had a problem with alcohol. Quite an assumption that she would need Alcoholics Anonymous.
