Typically you will not be working in any nursing position for the first 4-5 months. You will have to suspend your nursing license when you enter RAMP. Depending on your evaluation you may be required to complete an IOP program and/or 90 days of 12-step meeting. During the time you will undergo random drug testing , typically 3 times a month. After completing this satisfactorily you will need to do a Return to Work process with you peer group (which you meet with weekly for 1 hour online throughout the program). If they recommended that you are safe to return to work and your case manager agrees, then RAMP notifies the board of nursing that your license can be reinstated. Many times there is a big delay from when the board is notified to when they actually reinstate your license. You can not apply for any jobs until your license is reinstated and your case manager has to approve the job. Many nurses in RAMP are employed in dialysis, case management, office settings, and long term care. Hope this info help. Good luck!
