im a recent nursing grad and had an interview at a GREAT hospital about a month ago. i was offered the position and went in on january 22nd for a physical and drug testing at a facility called concentra (i believe they have many locations around the country). 3 days prior to this test, i had been around a group of people who were smoking marijuana 2 days in a row (common excuse, i know... but i have never done drugs)... enough smoke was in the room. i was very nervous that i might not pass because i have heard second hand smoke can cause you to fail. so i took an at home drug test for marijuana and i passed it fine.
SO... back to my drug testing at concentra. the physical went great. the MA asked me to give a urine sample to test for glucose.. i told her it may not be much because i really didnt have to use the restroom, and she said this was fine, HOWEVER, i could not leave the facility until i gave a urine sample for the drug testing, otherwise it would be considered a refusal to test and i would fail. SO, after the glucose test... i sat in the waiting room, and so was nervous that i wouldnt be able to provide a sample... i drank 40 ounces of juice in about 10 minutes! 45 minutes later i let the MA know i ready. so i give my sample and it was practically water... very clear with very little yellow. i left.
now i know concentra express ships samples to a place in memphis to be analyzed... but i took the test on january 22nd and it is now february 1st and i havent heard anything from my soon to be employer (hopefully). i am nervous about 2 things and maybe some of you can offer me some of your insight on the situation:
1. i tested positive for THC? even though i passed the at home drug test.
2. the sample was so clear that they thought i was trying to fool the test?
3. the hospital has not called me back yet. so i am wondering how long urine drug testing usually takes.
im just very nervous and making myself absolutely SICK over it. i dont do drugs!
thank you everyone!
