This thread is designed to keep track of how much nurses pay for monitoring in the country. This includes the cost of drug tests and monthly fees for starting and being in the monitoring program. From what I know, in some states nurses pay a lot for monitoring, where the program is a non-profit organization supported only by participant fees, while in other locations the monitoring program is actually free because it's government supported and participants only pay for drug tests. I'll start. In CT the fee is $150 monthly just to be in the program. The span of time is 5 years. There was an initial $600 administration fee. Drug tests cost around 50 to 60 dollars. I think these expenses are pretty insane myself, but the monitoring program here has no other funding.
