"wet reckless" please help


I can't find it anywhere...is a "wet reckless" a misdemeanor? Does it need to be reported to the BRN when applying for the NCLEX?

Sorry everybody...I should have been more specific.

In California and I think some other states there is something called a "wet reckless" when you are arrested for a DUI, but very near the legal limit. It is a lesser charge.

I know that it does not count as being convicted of a DUI, but I think it may still be a misdemeanor (which you need to report to BRN when applying for the NCLEX-I think!)

Unsure of the wet thing, but I DID get a DWAI (driving while under the influence, close to legal limit in NY)(the most expensive three beers of my life!!!!) That was 4 years before I graduated NSG school. I reported my conviction upon applying for my first licensure and everyone since. Ohio was the only state, of 4 that I've come across that required a "review process".

However, I have not dealt with California. Just sharing a similar experience for comparison. It has NEVER affected anything more than my checkbook, and my pride.
