I just got convicted of a felony dui. this is the first time i have ever got into any trouble. it was a felony because a got into an accident and injured someone. will i lose my licenses to practice. if so what can i do to get them back and continue my career. :angryfire
I think the only way you will know for sure if you will lose your licenses, is to contact the BON's. Ultimately, it is up to them.
I'm not sure what you can do with the felony.
IF you have a drinking problem, I hope you can get some help. Take care.
Town & Country
If I were you, the first thing I would do is arrange for some sort of voluntary alcohol rehab that you will have to show the BONs.
Arrange that asap, and contact the BONS for instructions. I imagine alot of it will depend on what happens in court. You will have a hard enough time gaining employment with a felony on your record, I hope you're employed or know some people who can help you.
Bestwishes to you.

Texas has a program for impaired nurses. If your state has one (& the BON will know) then contact them ASAP. There is a chance you will get your license suspended, not revoked, but of course the legal system will take precedence. Good luck.
I don't have much to add the other people have covered it pretty good just wanted to say Good Luck.
i dont have too much to add, except 10 months ago i was hit bya driver under the influence. We try to instill to our teenage drivers not to drink and drive- perhaps adults need a refresher in that too? No sympathy from me. Even if the other peoples injuries are only minor, they will have nightmares and a changed life. I wish the people you hit good luck.
