I am almost done with nclex prep and was wondering about this hospital.

I have a friend that works there and he said he wasn't drug tested for pre employment... does that mean they don't drug test?

Before you judge I don't use hard drugs and I haven't used marijuana since I started nursing school but I do miss it because I think it's the equivalent of a glass of wine and would like the option on my day off once in a while.

It doesn't mention it any where in the code of conduct, how do I find out if they randomly screen?

Drug screens are always going to be a possibility regardless of where you work. Even if they don't test you at hiring (and I have never heard of anyone not being tested for a nursing job), you can face a random test for a number of reasons. Such as suspicion of drug use or a medication error. If you think smoking the occasional joint is worth it, I recommend you spend a couple of hours reading the subform for recovering nurses https://allnurses.com/nurses-recovery

One positive urine screen can easily ruin your career and cause you years of trials and tribulations to keep your license. As well as a bucket load of money. And this is the same if you live in a state where marijuana is legal. Read their stories and this SHOULD help you make this choice.

They don't test on hire.
