How a DUI Could Affect Your Nursing Credentials in Southern California
Board of Registered Nurses in California
Board of Registered Nursing in California regulates the licensing and practice of registered nurses
and certified advanced practice nurses. If you're a registered nurse
or certified advanced practice nurse who has been arrested for DUI in
Southern, your professional nursing license is at risk of being suspended
or even revoked.
The board will take a number of things into consideration following the
conviction of a misdemeanor or felony. First and foremost, the Board will
look at the nature and severity of the act(s), offense(s), or crime(s).
Additionally, the Board looks at the actual or potential harm to the public
and to any patients. No matter what the circumstances of your case, you
need to contact a tough, smart attorney who can aggressively defend you
against your DUI charges.
Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians
Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians may discipline licensed vocational nurses and psychiatric technicians
who are convicted of a crime substantially related to the qualifications,
functions, and duties of a licensee. The Board may also deny an applicant
who has been convicted of a crime. Being arrested for DUI in Southern
California can be made worse by the potential suspension of your nursing
license. The Board will often ask that you voluntarily complete a rigorous
rehabilitation course. This course is voluntary and may not be necessary.
