Timeline on a return to work after Pnap enrollment??

  1. Hello again , I was wondering if all of you great nurses out there can give me an estimate on a return to work date? I have shared this before in other threads my situation in life but here goes again briefly....I had a car accident DUI in March ,entered rehab,now clean and sober 7 months . I am attending AA , have a sponsor, peer meetings and enrolled in Pnap. I am awaiting a letter from Pnap after I suppose they petition the BON on letting me return to nursing. I have had 2 urine screens and my case manager says after 3 screens she can petition for me to return to work. The 2 tests were just done this week I realize they are random. SO, my question is does anyone know how long before I can practice nursing given the next test is done in hopefully in the next 2 weeks. Oh and yes the tests will be negative no worries in that department Also my license has no restrictions on it as to date.....Thanks all looking forward to some advice..... I possibly have a job waiting and they know the situation but they wont hold the position to long.......
