Messed up bad..... - page 6

So I've only had my nursing license since 2011, and I love what I do. Unfortunately, I messed up really bad and now I'm worried about what's next. I tested positive for meth about a week ago. My... Read More

    Yep I agree. People don't come to this site to be told they have done wrong by some twit that never met them. Guess What? They already know that Einstein. They don't need to be judged and punished my internet "tough" nurses who are probably spineless idiots when you meet them in person but develop a spine when the anonymity of the internet involved. Two things I know for sure. The Nurse knows they screwed up and if they had any doubts the monitoring Nazis and rehab thieves will make this fact abundantly clear and the BON involved will get its bloody retribution for all transgressions committed (and then some). Second, there is a sick percentage of nurses who feed of the misery, misdeeds and misfortune of other nurses. They gossip, judge and cast insults at every possible opportunity and it rots the credibility of a profession that is designed to lend aid and assistance to those in need and instead stands in harsh judgment of those in pain

    I wasn't going to make this comment but I had to.

    I don't think you had the accountability and responsibility right from the start. You probably would have not stop either. Honestly, I'm glad you got busted!

    I will be surprised if a fellow member of Allnurses defends your action and one may say that I lack sympathy or compassion. I do but only for cases like this.
    --- It is inexcusable---

    We all make mistakes. But what you did was intentional. As I mentioned, I'm really glad you got caught. And I hope you did not cause any harm to any of your patients while you were under the influence. "You, as a Nurse" should know better.

    I'm not an Angel nor Perfect. But I tell you this, I will not do something intentionally stupid to waste what I worked hard for, my family, my livelihood and my future!

    Sounds to me you're now all polite and sorry just cause you got caught!

    Really, Bend_Over? Get off your high horse, show a little empathy, and stop embarrassing yourself. No one agrees with you.
    @OHRN, just know that it gets better, and getting caught saved your life. Wishing you the best of luck with your recovery and your journey with the BRN. And don't let jerks like this get to you.
