Can I lose my Ohio nursing license if I get convicted of DUI/OVI?
Medical and professional licensing boards enforce their own rules regarding criminal convictions and substance abuse. Any person such as a doctor, nurse, dentist, or lawyer who requires a state-issued license to pursue their career could be at risk for having that license suspended or revoked after they get convicted of driving under the influence. Unfortunately, there is no hard-and-fast answer to this question. Cases are reviewed by the appropriate board and determined on a case-by-case basis.
