misdemeanor RN-please help!!

  1. I am a RN who is looking to travel to a position in wyoming- I have a PREVIOUS DUI IN 2006, I recieved a public intox august of last year for driving after I had an endoscopy (hold comments-I know it was a serious mistake) .Will I be able to get a temp license in Wyoming and will this delay licensing? Does the board of nursing in WY need paperwork from my convitions? Origional state of licensure is Alabama-no action taken because I have been compliant with fees, classes, etc. Any advice-thank you!!

    questions we seem to be encountering more and more often have to do with the effects of a criminal history on nursing licensure:
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a criminal history and if so, can i get a job?
    • is it possible to become licensed as a nurse if you have a mip, dui, or other related charges?
    • what happens if you are charged or convicted of a crime after licensure?
    • can i go to nursing school and/or be licensed/be employed if my record has been sealed or expunged?
    • will i be able to go to nursing school with a criminal record?
    • what can happen if i receive a mip/dui/dwi or other charge while still in school?
    these are questions that the members of allnurses.com cannot answer. the only reliable source of information is your state board of nursing.
