IPN only does 5 year contracts now. The 2 year ones were done away with a year or so ago. I did not hire an attorney, as I never heard of anyone that it made a difference in their contracts. IPN is rough, and you have to be constantly on your toes (don't eat poppy seeds AT ALL, no alcohol in your food, alcohol free hand sanitizer, etc) and they are a money making enterprise, but at the end of the day if you keep your head down and do what you are supposed to, you can come out of this with your license 100% free and clear! It just depends on how much you want to remain a nurse. Just be prepared to go to rehab, it's extremely rare that an evaluator does not recommend that. Find someone experienced in your support group to ask for advice, it has kept me sane through some of the rougher times in the program! But at the end of the day, when i can return to the ER, it will be worth it! Good luck, keep your head up, and remember that this mistake does not define who you are as a person or as a nurse! You are amazing!
