    Viva, can I ask what state you are in? I know you mentioned Texas, where I am, is very strict. I'd like to look into some other states and see if I can dig a little deeper for information....or if anyone could chime in who is from another state for a heads up about policy??

    Sorry I've been a bit MIA but dissertation work and teaching simultaneously, especially this semester, has been very time consuming. I just wanted to give a shout out and thank you to those of you who provide some responses and gave voice to some of the issues regarding the monitoring program. I am working on the editing stages of hopefully a publishable article based on ethical practices of health professionals in the workplace regarding disclosure/nondisclosure, monitoring and marginalization of nursing professionals with disabilities, AND a summarized version of the research I worked on this past fall based on some of your input has been accepted for an ethics panel/presentation at a conference on medicine and technologies in May. So your voices/concerns, in this respect, will be represented in another type of public forum.
    I am still hoping to continue the research by documenting oral histories or personal accounts from some of you have expressed interest in telling your story. I need to see if I need IRB approval first...usually with narrative oral histories, and because this is a publicly open forum, oral histories may be exempt from the process. Will keep you all posted but if anyone else is interested
