1. So I was given good news by the NCBON! I'm being given back my licensure with stips for the next few years. I am ready to get back to my career, but I also feel like I have a better grasp on who I am now. Things that I forgot about myself or put to the side because of my addiction. I am truly grateful for the second chance, and this new awakening that I've had!

    Now time to find a job lol...If anyone has any suggestions or ideas or even places that are friendly to nurses in recovery I'd appreciate any suggestions! I'm in North Carolina...

    Congratulations on both getting your license back and your continued recovery!

    Have you thought about psych? We do tend to be a bit recovery-friendly... and depending on what your stips are, there may a niche in psych that could accommodate them.

    I have thought about psych, but I'm hoping to get something in an ambulatory setting. There are so many doctors offices around here and it's a good place to stay away from that darned pyxsis! At this point anything will be a good start and a blessing, I'm keeping all options open.

    I have faith I'm right where I need to be, and my path will take me where I'm supposed to go. Just hope there's a pay check involved lol
