Will An Ohio DUI Prevent Me From Getting An STNA?

A recent client asked, “Will an Ohio DUI charge prevent me from getting my STNA (State Tested Nursing Assistant) license?

Short Answer: No!

Candidates are trained and tested and their credentials are maintained by Ohio Department of Health’s Nurse Aide Registry. You will be required to submit to a background check as part of the application process and a renewal of your credentials every twenty-four months. Convictions for DUI are not an automatic bar, but it is within the nursing board’s discretion to deny a license to anyone they feel is not of good moral character.  If an STNA applicant has multiple DUI convictions, felony convictions, or has caused harm to others, the assistance of an attorney is important.

If you are cleared by the board, you may have to address the conviction in a job interview. Typically, a DUI  is indicative of  a lack of judgment, which can be a serious concern in a medical environment and though not often requested in relation to other background checks can be an indicator of problems that a clean criminal or financial background check wouldn’t establish.  Obviously, hiring an attorney who can win your DUI case is vital.

STNAWe have successfully represented nurses since 1995 and can help you avoid a conviction.  If you would like to learn more, contact Ohio DUI attorney Charles M. Rowland II at (937) 318-1384.
