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!
