Dear on Suboxone,I am an L.V.N. in CA. I am taking Suboxone to get off of Morphine that was prescribed by my Doctor for knee pain had both knee replacements now. Can I get a nursing job while taking Suboxone.Dear LVN,Congratulations on getting off of morphine and being in recovery.Suboxone (buprenorphine) is one of the primary drugs prescribed for medication-assisted therapy (MAT) for opioid addiction. It prevents cravings and allows people who have been addicted to return to normal life.It most likely will not show up on a standard pre-employment drug screen, unless a multi-panel test is ordered that includes buprenorphine.If it does show up, and you are questioned, you have a prescription for Suboxone. As long as you test within the therapeutic range, there shouldn't be a problem.Best wishes,Nurse BethAuthor, https://www.amazon.com/Y Your Last Nursing Class- how to land your first nursing job...and your last!
