    You will be happy to know, I'm sure, that I start my first RN job on June 4th--as I finalized everything by passing my pre-employment physical today.

    Thank you for those of you who recall the person typing on the other end of your screen here is actually a human-being; thank you TRULY for your support.
    Congrats! They're lucky to have you.

    It could be the offer was withdrawn because of the reason you take pain meds. We recently offered a nurse a position, and she failed the pre-employment physical, not because her drug screen was positive for narcs (she had a script for them, too), but that the narcs were for back pain. Our HR apparently withdrew the offer once her history of previous back injury became known.

    just because it is a legitimate prescription does not mean you will never be at work impaired. That is the normal effect of the medication - to alter your brain. They are probably thinking you are a risk for hurting yourself or others.

    So nurses are once again supposed to be super human and not take any medications?

    I find many of these responses make me ashamed of my fellow nurses. And no, I do not take any medications, but the O/P described responsible and reasonable medication use.

    O/P - I am very happy you found a job. I think you will be a wonderful nurse.

    I'm waiting for the day they start denying jobs to prospective employees because their breasts sag.

    Now that hospitals get to hire nurses like a casino hires "hostesses," I'm sure instead of fighting requirements to wear all white, we'll be fighting requirements to wear sexy nurse outfits. It's all about customer service baby!!!
