    NCLEX and licensing with 2 OLD DUI's

    Hello everyone. I have seen this type of question posted before and have heard a lot of hearsay. Unfortunately, from what I've seen, the original poster never returns with an answer. So, I'm going to address it again and hopefully get a more definitive answer. I'll do my best to keep it short. I'm currently in a BSN program here in California, and I will be graduating relatively soon. My only dilemma is that I have TWO VERY old DUI charges. They are about 8 and 10 years old give or take from when I was 19 and 22 years old, long before I even imagined being a nurse. They have also been expunged. I completed every single stipulation the court threw at me without incident. Since then, I have kept my nose clean and have maintained a 3.8 cumulative GPA (4.0 in all sciences) and will hopefully be graduating at the top of my class. Shame on me I suppose for not being more proactive, but I am only now finding out that the board can deny my license and not allow me to sit for the NCLEX! Or worse, put me on probation (at which point I might as well jump off a bridge because there is no chance of getting a job in this market with a restricted RN license). I understand that California is extremely stubborn when it comes to DUI's, but I hate it here anyway; are there any other states that may be more lenient? Have any of you ever experienced this type of nightmare and how did it end? Should I just start my career in a different state and forget California completely? Give up and just work at McDonald's for the rest of my life? ANY advice is more than welcome! Thanks!
