New tests for IPN

  1. I posted recently that I had almost $300 of drug and blood tests in the past month. Never had this much testing since I entered Florida IPN.

    I have heard different nurses being tested these past 3 weeks with additional tests. Including o-panels. 2 different test at a time $80.

    It it was easier for me to afford some of drug testing in California due to better wages.

    Any one one else having additional pricey tests with IPN??

    I am seeing the same thing. When someone in our group questioned her case manager she was told she had been selected for a random test.
    I had the m test return as prescription positive. I don't know positive for what.
    I have a little over a year left to go too.

    Certain meds like suboxone/subutex (buprenorphine), fentanyl and nucynta are not common in drug screens. Prescription positive just means that you have a prescription for a drug ok'd with IPN

    It has been since the first when I took the new test and it keeps reporting in affinity partial result test it progress. What the heck! They usually result with in 2-3days.

    It said partial result for me too. It took 7-8 days for results. Probably a special send out test.

    Hi Gabby,
    I had this test done on the 4/1 and I'm still waiting for results. If you don't mind my asking, even though it took so long for the results to return, was it what you wanted it to be? I just wish I knew what the test was for. I am supposed to be starting a new job on 4/25 but I've been so worried about this test result because of how long it has taken!

    Mine took 8 days. Result was late afternoon. Probably Saturday or monday.
    I posted above what meds might be positive.
