Can a DUI affect your medical career?

As a nurse, doctor or other medical professional, you dedicate yourself to providing patients with the highest level of care possible. You are attentive, professional and careful in every aspect of your job. Like anybody else, though, you likely look forward to relaxing and loosening up a bit when you aren’t on the clock. You might go out, have a drink and enjoy the company of friends at a bar.
