So, have you signed the agreement to enter TPAPN? I think when you say that you were evaluated and that you do NOT have a dependency problem, that confuses me, because TPAPN participants must have a chemical/substance abuse/dependency diagnosis. Are you sure it's tpapn, because it sounds like you're in EEP.
It all depends what is going to happen. IF you already signed the agreement with TPAPN it is up to that agency to say what will happen next. IF you failed the UA before the TPAPN agreement was signed, then they will ask you if you want to go through TPAPN and recovery. If you do, then you will need NOT be working in NURSING until they say so, which is usually 2 months or so while you're going to out patient treatment, or whatever treatment the counselor deems is necessary for you.
But , I am a bit confused, like I said... if you do not have a diagnosis of chemical dependency or substance abuse, then you cannot participate in tpapn. There is another program for people who do not have a diagnosis, it is called EEP. You can find out information about it on the tpapn website. http://www.tpapn.org
You really should read the rules and regulations on TPAPN and EEP. YOu can go through these programs, or be at the mercy of the BON. You do NOT want to be at the BON's mercy, I guarantee you that.
