Waiting to take RN nclex and Got DUI

  1. I have made the biggest mistake of my life. I can't believed I put my career in danger like this. I'm a working LVN and I am waiting to take the RN nclex and I received a DUI last week after I got pulled over for speeding. My BAC was 0.10. I was getting ready to reapply to take the NCLEX, This will be my third time taking it.
    I was wondering if I have to report the dui right now when I reapply for the nclex even though I haven't gone to court yet. I'm so scared now on what will happen. On the other hand, my LVN license, I have to report to them right away or after I go to court?
    Does anyone know of a DUI lawyer in the San Francisco Bay Area that has experience in Dealing the BON. I love nurisng and there is nothing else I see myself doing. I'm so remorseful, I Am not an addict of drinking and this was just a stupid mistake. I haven't been able to sleep or eat because of this mistake. Please somebody if you've been in a similar situation, share your story. Thank you all in advance.

    I would not report anything to the BON and immediately seek out DUI attorney.
    Best of luck!

    You would be wise to seek out an attorney familiar with nursing licensure. TAANA Executive Office - Home is a resource for that.
