    Panicked. Missed check in

    I completely agree. Walking on eggshells worried that one wrong move is going to either cause more time or license suspension is completely miserable. You are given zero guidance but are expected to obey at all cost. I have 9 months left, as long as this missed check in doesn’t completely ruin it.

    Panicked. Missed check in

    In search of some reassurance. I have been in my program for over a year. Getting on the home stretch. I haven’t had any issues other than getting management to get my quarterly reports on time. Yesterday I missed check in-was not selected. I am completely terrified. Has anyone else had this happen to them. Particularly in Ohio? My thoughts were to email my monitor with an apology and reassurance that it will not happen moving forward. Any help would be appreciated!!!!

    Flawed test?

    Wow that’s crazy!! Those damn hair tests!!! I’ve had three in 8 months! They add up I ended up getting through to the lab, the person who administered the test didn’t sign the paperwork, so the chain of command was broken. First source did say it wasn’t my fault but followed with the board of nursing could see it that was because ultimately it’s our responsibility! I’m expecting another test soon!

    What To Expect

    Being an Ohio nurse as well, get a lawyer now. Do not talk to anyone from the board without your lawyer present. Comply with everything work asks of you. Even the sucky stuff. Do not surrender your license, no matter how bad they scare you.
  6. Hi, I am a Cleveland area nurse too and need to see an addiction psychiatrist to do my board evaluation. Who did you see that did your paperwork for you? TIA

      I actually wasn’t required to do that (yet) it was not a part of my initial contract but it stated they coUld ask for one at any time

    Probation

    Of course! It’s all about what they can prove and how good of a lawyer you have. They have to really be able to prove diverting, regardless of what you test positive for. A lot of hospitals have employee assistance programs for this kind of stuff. But trust me the process of that is rigorous too. Good luck!

    Probation

    I failed a random drug screen through my employer. I did everything they asked intensive outpatient therapy, alcohol and drug assesessments and screenings and then I came back to work within about a month. Do not speak with any one from the board without a lawyer, they are not your friend and they are trying to get you to confess. My lawyer worked out all the hard details and I got two year working probation. I was able to keep my job. But I do check in daily for screens which can be costly since in six months I have had my hair cut twice! And those tests run about 150$ a test. Normal urine tests are about 25$

    Probation

    Oh I totally agree, I feel like there is no support what so ever. Initially it took my monitor days to respond to me, with no urgency what so ever and then have not heard from him since my initial interview. This whole process has made me fearful and anxious. I worry about not doing one small thing right and having a letter show up at my door that my lisense is being revoked (does that even happen?). And I feel like there is nowhere to turn to vent these frustrations. My lawyer is done with me and I keep this private from my work friends. But also, those that aren’t experiencing it can never understand the toll it takes on you.

    What do you mean by that?

    Probation

    Hello all, I’m an Ohio nurse looking for some advice on probation. I just hit month 6 of my two year probation. It’s been a pretty smooth road so far, yes annoying to check in every day and pay out of pocket, but I am still working full time. I was wondering if anyone had any input on the strictness of the timeline of the board? (I was two days late sending in my background check). I did know how closely they were monitoring the dates for that. Any advice would be appreciated. I wouldn’t want my lisense to be revoked over something small like that.

    I am DONE! Finally

    Congrats to you! I am currently coming up to month 6 myself. I was wondering if anyone had any input on my question. Technically 6 months would of been feb 1st and I don’t have my background check done yet, I am going today to get it done, 3 days late but I’m terrified they are going to suspend my lisense because of this! I am not sure how closely they are monitoring the dates of all this stuff??? Does anyone have any input?
