Apr 23, '13 by SouthernPointQuote from hallgavinzekeIPN approved facilities for what? If your talking about Inpatient Rehab's, there are a bunch of them that are approved by IPN. You just need to do some research on them before hand.I dont know if I am posting this in the right place but I am new to everything here and I am trying to find IPN approvecd facilities in the state of Florida...I was told by my evaluator ******** that there are only four in the state of florida, is that true....trying to get information from my insurance company or IPN is proving to be difficult

Apr 25, '13 by Junebug59yay! glad it came back clear for you. I thought when I saw you said a month ago it would. just be careful and never self report unless you have to. once they have a hold of you, there is no letting go and it's hell.
May 26 by DaisyRN2003Hi there. I was wondering how long it took to get your license back after you surrendered? I am not sure what to do in my case. I am in probation in CA and got a positive alcohol test. : ( It was not intentional, I simply just forgot one day when I was with friends who didn't know I am not supposed to drink. It was the only time I got a violation. I heard in CA they will prob take my license. But I don't know if I should surrender or revoke? I eventually want to go back into nursing, I just don't know if it looks better to surrender or revoke it? Any feedback helps! Thanks
May 27 by hppygr8ful, ADN, RN, EMT-IQuote from chico0909OK so you dodged a bullet - now it is time to make sure you never have to worry about this again. First get yourself some health insurance! It's actually illegal not to have it now in the US so you will be paying criminal penalties which are scheduled go up from $90.00 last year to $250.00 per person per household this coming tax year.Thank you everybody. By some sort of miracle it came back clear. The advice was awesome.
Next stop the MJ right now. It is illegal and even if you get a medical MJ card the BON will still sanction you for using it if you get caught. I know what it is like to deal with debilitating chronic pain but MJ is not the option you should do if you want to maintain a nursing career. Also don't take your family members meds anymore. If you test positive for something you don't have a valid prescription for you will be up the same creek without a paddle. You need to talk to a physician familiar with non-narcotic pain management.
