    I was just accepted into my program in September & we were required to have a drug test/background check done (among other things) before a December 1st deadline. Once we start class in January, they said we can also be random drug tested and will probably be asked to take a drug test before switching to different clinical sites.

    I would say unless you have a prescription for it, DON'T DO IT! Its hard enough to get into nursing school, so why risk getting kicked out over something like a drug test? That should be the last worry you have!

    In my previous career, the Production Manager was interviewing a prospective employee. The PM said, "We have a zero tolerance policy on drugs here."

    The applicant replied, "Even pot??"

    Still cracks me up.

    This is in general:

    It could also be a prescription medication that shows up (or could), and the OP is getting pummeled with "addict' and 'drug problem' labels that aren't true (per the OP- and she's all we have to go by). There can be benign reasons for asking.

    In looking at this, I know a heads' up would help me, since I don't pee on demand, and some extra fluids would be nice to get in, so I didn't have to wait there all day

    Any chance folks could just answer the question and not label someone they don't know (and are possibly not qualified to diagnose an addict? Any addictionologists out there? Dr. Drew- are ya reading this?

    And I agree with you, except for the manner in which the OP was acting about it. They could have easily asked about what if they're on some kind of medication, need a medication, etc. Or they would ask "how do I tell my school about the meds I take"

    Well, I didn't see any acting at all Just saw a question in statement form

    "I was wondering how fast they can drug test you at UTA after admission"

    Maybe she didn't care to offer any information, for her own reasons? For someone who has never been in this position, this seems like a straightforward question, without knowing all of the variables TO ask..... jmo
