what is this IPN?

  1. Hi! Just joined! Can anyone give me any info about IPN? I moved to FL from MA but need an IPN eval. I have my license but have a mark on it from 2002. Is going for an eval a sure thing that I will be marked when I go out for interviews? I'm told I see a MD and have a computerized personality test. What little I've read-looks like I should just change my profession. Any feedback? Thanks!:uhoh21:

    "Intervention Project For Nurses" they monitor "impaired" nurses. Just because you have to have an evaluation does not mean you will be monitored. But if you want to work as a nurse, you have to play their game and do what they say. Good luck. They have a website if you google it.

    Wow... thats new to me never heard of IPN. Based upon the info posted by Tweety it sounds like a private matter.

    You do not fool around with IPN. For impaired health professionals they are a God-send. Even pharmacists regain careers. We have an excellent facility in Tampa that specializes in addicted health care professionals and lawyers. Healthcare Connection. A nurse or physician in treatment there will receive superb care--and return to work. The medical director there has personal experience in addiction and treatment at his facility is a gift of a lifetime.

    Hello, I have just been evaluated in Tampa, the MD said no diagnosis will be made as he is sure I don't have an addiction problem. He however recommended 6 hours of chemical dependance class. Has anyone been in this situation? I have been offered the job of my dreams and I'm afraid I will loose this opportunity because of this. Any input about the monitoring under these circumstances? thank you all in advance, your imput will be greatly appreciated.
