    Nursing school with DUI?

    You can get into a nursing program and many people have with similar charges or convictions. However, the nursing program will obviously do a criminal history check and clinical sites can refuse to admit you over it. If you want to a be nurse, you should speak to the program directors or coordinators at the school you are seeking to apply to and ask them if it is likely to be an issue for admission to their program or clinical placement. You can use DUI school as evidence of rehabilitation but there's no guarantee the board of nursing will give you an unrestricted license even with that.
  2. Let's say I was convicted of the charge and served my sentence but have to register as a sex offender for life. Can I still be a nurse if I have recommendation from a psychologist or other health professionals as evidence of rehabilitation?
