I am new to the forum, have a question.
I am a Massachuttes RN with 25+ years of experience in fields ranging from VNA to ICUs. Most recently I have worked in medical research.
In 2002 I surrendered my license for drug diversion/ use. Since that time I have been in recovery, an active 12-step member, finished over 3 years of random toxicology screening. I had my license reinstated with probation. The probation states that I need to work in an RN position for one year where my manager is willing to be a reporting supervisor to the Board, send in quarterly checklist reports.
I have send out 100's of resumes/ applications. have been offered jobs only to have them recinded by the HR department because of the probation. As stated above I need a supervisor to the Board, also I am not allowed to work in home care or for a nursing agancy. I am able to work in all other aspects of nursing, am able to dispense all medications to include controlled substances.
I am looking for an employer who is willing to hire me with my probation, so that I may re-enter the career of my choice and love.
I believe that I am a very good RN, am smart, willing and flexible. I am willing to go to length, am willing to work anywhere in MA.
Any thoughts, suggestions.
