What Are the Consequences of a DUI Arrest for Healthcare Professionals?

If you are a nurse, doctor, dentist, pharmacist or other healthcare worker and have been arrested for driving under the influence or any other criminal charges, the arrest could jeopardize your healthcare license.A DUI arrest, even one that does not result in a conviction, can have an impact on your license. If you are arrested for DUI, you may be eligible for Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition Program (ARD). This is a preliminary probation program which will allow your record to be expunged after successful completion of the ARD program; however, you may still be required to notify the licensing board of this arrest.Up until recently, the Licensing Board would typically learn of an arrest when a licensee disclosed the arrest on the biannual renewal of the license; however, recently, the licensing boards are learning of the arrests of healthcare professionals by doing their own investigations.
