    hi

    i'm new here and i am a registered nurse. i have been in the rnp since june of 2007. i have been searching for employment for about 3 months now. i have had countless interviews, they all seem to go well until i mention i am in the rnp with some restrictions. i have 8 years of nursing experience. i have experience in urgent care, nursing home, home health, labortory, medical surgical, ob/gyn, long term acute care, private duty(pediatric), charge, floor. i am very computer literate because while going to nursing school i worked in a hospital as a clerical data technican (ward clerk). i have never had trouble finding a job before. i understand that i caused this but i am compliant with my program and it will not go on my license because i reported myself. i have the following restrictions: cannot give narc for 6 months, cannot work nights, and random drug screens and meetings. i have not had any luck and it is very disappointing. if somene can please give any recommendations of anywhere they know is rnp friendly it would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

    Hello- my name is Anne and I am an addict. I live in NE Louisiana and joined the RNP here in 1999. I have a friend that lives closer to you that may have some suggestions. I will be glad to check if you would like. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers while you are going through this. Feel free to pm me if I can help.

    Hi. I am currently having the same problem and I just recently found out that I can volunteer somewhere to get through my narcotics restriction. So far it seems like that is the only part of the whole thing that is causing problems getting hired. Its like they don't have a problem with my addiction hx at all, just the fact that I can't pass narcotics. So I have signed up to work at a free clinic and if I get a job before the six months is over-great! If not at least the restriction will be gone and then I should not have any problems. B/c unfortunately that 6 mos doesn't just go away. You actually have to use it to lose it. Good luck in your search!

    hello,
    before you make yourself crazy go to the federal site or the inspector general's website, go to the federal exclusion list,pick your state and make sure you are not on that list. If you are on the list send me an email .
