Here on Reccomendation from a Friend

  1. A friend reccommended this site as a tool to help me with a paper I have to write for one of my courses. So here I sit on a Sunday afternoon, typing in hopes that the help I am seeking will be found on here. So here's the scoop, have to write a paper on nurses and substance abuse. So what I'm looking for is a nurse (or a few) to "talk" with about their personal experiences (using/abusing substances as a nursing professional). If you'd like to help out, drop me a line. Thanks.

    I would post this in other boards like the Nursing Student Assistance board, or maybe the general board, since it's a bit narrow. I do know when we've discussed substance abuse, there were several members who came out that they were in recovery.

    Good luck and welcome. Come back frequently. There are good boards here.

    Good point Tweety ... I will move the thread.

    I have to agree with Tweety ... it is a rather narrow subject and also a very personal one for nurses. There have been some nurses that have gone public that they are in recovery and perhaps they will bewilling to help. Might be a good idea for you to post what program you are in and at what level.

    Thanks for moving my thread. I appreciate it. I'm writing a paper for one of my courses (Masters degree) and I'm in a Chemical Dependency Guidance program. I realize the subject is narrow but I don't want to put a restriction (so to speak) on it.
