South Carolina Nursing License & DUI

South Carolina Nursing License & DUI

When a nurse is arrested for DUI law enforcement is now automatically reporting this to the South Carolina Nursing Board.

This means that every nurse facing even a first-offense misdemeanor DUI now has to worry how this will affect their employment and their nursing license.

The best way to minimize or prevent any negative consequences is to try to have the DUI either dismissed or favorably reduced. In addition to helping to avoid nursing licensing complications, this can also help avoid:

  • Driver’s License Suspensions
  • Jail or High Fines
  • SR-22 Insurance
  • Mandatory ADSAP
  • Lifetime Criminal Record

We’re able to not only represent our clients in area DUI courts, but if necessary can represent clients before the South Carolina Nursing Board or other professional licensing agency. We've found that most of the time when we're representing a nurse with a DUI formal representation before the board won't be required. It is likely that you will receive a letter from the nursing board about your case, and we can help you choose how to best respond.

The first step is to contact our office for a free consultation. During this consultation you’ll have a chance to explain your situation to an attorney and ask any questions that you may have. The attorney will be able to outline for you the initial steps that would need to be undertaken to protect your interests, including on how to challenge a Notice of Suspension, or fight charges in the DUI court, magistrate court, or General Sessions.
