I'm sure there is a thread about this but I wanted to establish one specific to my situation.
I am a 20 year old, second year nursing student in a highly competitive nursing program at a four-year private liberal arts college. I do not live on campus, I still live with each of my parents.
I am sure this question will elicit judgemental comments from all walks of life but let me illuminate you on my character-
I do not drink alcohol or party.
I strictly am attending college to better my future and become qualified, you'll hardly catch me socializing. I am extremely school-oriented and maintain a 3.5 gpa.
I study in my free time and work full time as well as attending school full time.
but YES, on occasion I indulge in smoking marijuana for the calming effects it has on my situational anxiety and sleep issues.
So here is my directive.
Do nursing schools TYPICALLY drug test prior to clinicals and how severe are the consequenceswhen testing positive with marijuana?
