Dui 4 years ago 2 years before nursing school in NJ

  1. So 4 years ago I got a dui with an accident. It was 2 years before I started nursing school. That incident changed my entire life and I went back to school to become a nurse. I recently graduated and received my ATT from the NJBON. I am now worried that after taking my NCLEX the board will deny my license or implement serious sanctions against me. I have heard a story about one person who got a dui 3 years before nursing school and NJ made it so difficult that he opted to get his license in NY instead. I have heard other stories where people got their license no problem and no restrictions. Does anyone have any experience with this in NJ specifically. I admitted to it on my application submitted all necessary paperwork and wrote an awesome letter of explanation regarding the circumstances. Any insight would be extremely appreciated.

    Just received my unencumbered RN license number today. For all of you who have a past it is possible just work hard and learn from your mistakes

    I was told I need a RAMP evaluation due to the court requiring an interlock in my car for 6 months. My DUI was in NY and there they require an interlock no matter what level of offense (unlike NJ). They draw a line in the sand over arbitrary details and seem to not treat everyone the same way. Sucks they don't truly take these things on a case by case basis.
