question about employers and drug testing

  1. By way of background, I am considering going back to school to be an RN, and I have a question.

    I take a prescription that could possibly show up on a drug screen.

    Do all employers (hospitals) do drug screens?

    With a doctor's note, would it be a problem?

    Would I be discriminated against in hiring because of the above?

    Thanks,

    I am taking a narc. I have applied, and been accepted to several positions. What happens is they take my urine or blood, and will contact me a few days later telling me the test came back. I call the company and have my pharmacy fax over a list of meds they have administered to me the last six months. This never has been a problem with me.

    Good luck.
