San Diego is home to countless numbers of nurses. Whether it is a family bound nurse in Allied Gardens or a young professional in Pacific Beach, these persons are anchors in the community. They are an essential piece of the San Diego community. Here is how a San Diego DUI can affect a nurse.

The California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) maintains control of nurses’ licenses, renewals and new applications in regards to DUI cases. All convictions must be reported to the Board except for minor traffic offenses. A San Diego DUI is not a minor traffic offense. It is considered a misdemeanor and in some instances a felony offense.

The BRN reviews all prior convictions and arrests. The Board, in its review, takes into consideration the nature, severity and recency of the offense as well as the rehabilitation of the individual. The rehabilitation may consist of court ordered consequences, such as a San Diego DUI class, along with any other factors that would put the applicant in good standing. Each case is reviewed individually by the BRN regarding disqualification.

All offenses must be reported and eventually a certified copy of court documents and arrest reports must be submitted to the nursing board. A detailed description of the circumstances and lifestyle changes or rehabilitation may also be required.

It is vital to obtain the right advocate to help you through the court process so that you obtain the best results in court and make the best impression in front of the Board of Registered Nursing. Hire a Proactive, affordable, and quality defense when you are facing San Diego DUI charges.
