Hi everyone, I am posting this to try and get some information about what I can do to better my chances of obtaining an RN license in California with a couple of charges including a dui. My charges include the following:
Open Container -2008 (citation ticket)
Public Urination-2006 (citation ticket)
DUI- 2005 (misdemeanour)
I am currently in nursing school ad will be graduating with a BSN in December 2013. I have reviewed the licensing application and I read that the BRN allows you to submit letters from recognized recovery programs, nursing instructors, employers. You can also submit Proof of community work, schooling, and self improvement efforts. With that said, I would like to know if anyone has ever been in a similar situation and has succeeded in obtaining a license with a past dui or criminal history. I would also like advise on things that I could do to better my application chances Does anyone think its a good idea to join AA? Thanks.
