license with stipulations - Texas

  1. 0
    Hi all! I recently got my RN back after I vouluntarily surrendered it for not following TPAPN guidelines (no failed urines or anything). I have stipulations on my license and will be on board supervision for 3 years. My problem is that I am having a hard time finding a job because I cannot give narcs or work night shift for the first year. Does anyone out there have advice for me? Anyone been in the same situation? Thanks!!!!!!

    First, you have to be up front with any employer, you know that.

    2nd, you'll probably have to accept a job at a lower wage than a hospital clinical position. Try day shift non-clinical positions, such as case managers, utilization review, etc.

    Also, try organizations that don't routinely work nights and give narcs, like doctors offices and blood donations.

    How about telephone triage? Health clinics?

    Good luck.

    I will give you a suggestion but you may not like it if you are wanting a hospital position. But about 6 years ago I worked with a nurse in a LTC facility that was in the same position as you and I passed all of her narcs for her so she could have a job. So i know that you might have a chance in a LTC facility. Good luck to you.

    Hospice...they don't administer meds....the nurses do...outpatient surger or any surgical position...you don't give the drugs.....sales.....Think on positions not requiring administration of narcs....You can do it!

    Welcome to allnurses and hope you enjoy the site. While we do not have a forum specific for nurses in recovery, there are several threads where you might be able to find some support from other nurses with similar circumstances. Good luck in your job search.
