DUI CHARGES - REGISTERED NURSES & LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSES
CAN YOU HAVE A DUI AND STILL BE A NURSE - REGISTERED NURSE OR LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSE?
Nurses RN/LVN facing DUI charges have a difficult road before them as Registered Nurses and Licensed Vocational Nurses and can face even harsher scrutiny than Physicians when it comes to be charged and convicted of a crime, even DUI. If you are a Nurse RN/LVN facing DUI charges, even a single DUI charge and/or conviction can result in discipline. Combine this with aggravating factors, such as a traffic collision, a high blood and/or breath alcohol concentration level, whether there were children in the vehicle at the time of the offense, and/or any other type of DUI Enhancement, will often only serve to increase your chances of facing discipline and the potential loss of your license.
NURSE RN/LVN FACING DUI CHARGES
If you are a Registered Nurse (RN), or a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), and are now charged with a DUI in Orange County or anywhere in Southern California, you need an experienced DUI Defense Attorney who also specializes in the defense of Professional Licenses, particularly one who represents Nurses RN/LVN facing DUI charges and has familiarity with the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) or the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technician (BVNPT).
California Registered Nurses (RNs) have always been required to disclose criminal convictions on license applications and on license renewal applications; however, beginning in July of 2014, the Board of Registered Nursing imposed a duty on Registered Nurses to self-report misdemeanor and felony convictions within 30 days of the date of conviction.
