    Pennsylvania State Boards

    Hey! Not in the same exact boat with you, but pretty close. I received an out of state DUI 10 years ago, and recently applied for my boards after graduation. It is has been over a month without a response. I included court certified documents, reference letters, and a personal statement letter. Just a heads up, it is impossible to reach the BON. I literally call them at least 3x a week to try to get an update. I hope your experience is better than mine. I'm really stressed out and am in jeopardy of losing my job.

    PA BON TPP w/Past DUI

    Hey All, This is my first time posting here at allnurses.com, however I have been a long term creeper and have scoured pretty much every thread I can find. I want to preface this post by stating, what has happened in my past is just that and does not define me as a person. While I am not saying I condone it, I was young and naive and have grown tenfold as a person. However, I am not able to get a lot of information on here or any other website regarding the PA BON (not sure if that is a good/bad thing) and was just wondering if anyone else has experience with this particular state. In 2009 I got a DUI in Virginia. I was 21 years old and invincible, and honestly think that learning from my mistake and being humble about my experience has made me a better person. Fast forward almost 10 years, I am now 30 and have graduated from with my ADN as of May 3rd. I am wondering if anyone in PA has had experience with the BON and past misdemeanors? When I asked the Director of Nursing at my school, she said they normally are more understanding if an incident occurred in the past and was isolated. I also sent in court certified documents, 3 letters of recommendation, and a statement letter. I'm just wondering if anyone has any horror/success stories with this state. TL;DR -- has anyone had a DUI here and applied in PA for your license/NCLEX? What happened? How long did it take them to process your TPP? Thanks!
