    Recent DWI arrest

    How do we find the forum it was moved to? Can't find it anywhere. Thank you.

    Recent DWI arrest

    Well it was my bad decision-no one else's. It just goes to show you could be on top of the world one minute, brought down the next if you're not living right. The ink didn't even have time to dry on my new license before this happened. Attorney says it happens to doctors, nurses, attorneys and even judges every day, but I just can't imagine. I'll just do what I have to do, and if nothing else, I'll walk away with a valuable lesson learned. I just really hope it's not at the expense of my license.

    Recent DWI arrest

    Thank you. I was already planning to make sure to provide the court order showing expungement if we make it that far. I'd rather be honest and get it all out there in the open, than walk on eggshells hoping it doesn't come up. What I read on the BON website says you don't have to report expunged offenses, but should the court not file documents in a timely manner, it could bite you in the bottom. I know my county takes a while to file things sometimes, so I wouldn't risk that at all. I guess other things I'm worried about are will this follow me through every renewal? Will it prevent state employment? Do I need to report to my current employer? Could I be terminated for something like this? Where does TPAPN come into play? I understand that this happens to people more often than they'd like to admit, but I'm truthfully so disappointed with myself that I could just crawl under a rock at this point. Idk how people get through stuff like this and go on to be productive members of society again. I was reading on another forum (maybe it was Florida), that the stipulations and sanctions for offenses like this were so bad that sometimes it was better to find another line of work. I am just devastated at the thought of it.

    Recent DWI arrest

    I'm a new registered nurse with a DWI arrest this past weekend. At 36 years old, I have never had anything like this happen before, and I have absolutely no criminal history. I truly made a stupid mistake, and I am very aware of it. Thankfully no one was hurt or worse. I have been a practicing LVN for 3 years and graduated in May and sat for my NCLEX-RN late May. My attorney would like to try to get a Pretrial Diversion, in order that I might complete the program and have my record expunged, and hopefully do so before my license is set to be renewed in April of 2020. I know that I really still need to report the expunged offense with my application for renewal, but does anyone have any experience with anything like this, and if so, can you provide some (hopefully positive) insight? I'm terrified that I might have blown my chances at doing what I love, and supporting my family in the process. I would also like to know how this might affect my chances at landing a state job in the future (both immediate, and further down the road). I had accepted a position Friday with Texas Dept. of Health and Human Services, and had a set start date of July 1. I'm already employed as an RN at this time with a local hospital, but I was hoping to move to a position I might have better benefits and leave with. I'm already painfully aware that I made a ridiculously bad mistake. Please don't kick me while I'm down.
