    Hair follicle

    I started TNPAP in June . Should I expect a hair follicle test this year? So far I’ve only had urine and 1 Peth. I took hydrocodone 5/325 for a couple of days (no script) 2 weeks ago for a hand injury. If I do get hair tested will it show up? Please no judgement. Just freaking out.

    Are they reporting you to the BON? Did they give you the option of TNPAP?

    My test was option 12. The instructions were for a Peth test blood draw. They just drew blood. What is this testing for.

    Well pretty sure I was selected for a Peth test today. $130. 12 days from my strawberry daiquiri being spiked. Wish me luck! I terrified of being positive!

    Hello! I’m in TNPAP under a monitoring agreement and I drank about 1/4 of a strawberry daiquiri yesterday thinking it was a virgin at first until my friend told me she spiked it. ( I couldn’t taste the alcohol) She did not know about my restriction. Do you think it could show on a Peth test if I’m selected for it in a week? That is the only drink I’ve had in 6 months. No lectures please! TIA

    Can I ask how many times a week are you required to do birch wood group meetings and drug testing?

    TNPAP Monitoring Agreement

    I have completed my IOP and have started with counseling. I finished IOP last Friday. How long does it normally take to receive your monitoring agreement? I’ve tried to email and call my case worker for a couple of things and he’s only emailed me back once. Also, my daughter is graduating from college and we are having a party for her. I would like to have one glass of champagne but I’m afraid to due to drug/alcohol testing. anyone have any advice for me?

    TNPAP MONITORING AGREEMENT

    QUESTION: First, here's my history.. I admitted to self medicating at home and diverting hydrocodone 5/325 mg -- 5 times at work for 3 months. I have not been asked for a drug test or tested positive for one, was never accused by my DON of diverting or taking anything. My DON was knew something was wrong but didn' know what was wrong. I admitted to her what I was doing because I was ashamed and knew it was wrong. Shes an amazing boss! My DON asked that I enroll in TNPAP to save my license. My DON has created a non nursing position for me while I complete the TNPAP recommened Outpatient therapy(which is 20 sessions) and individual counseling but I have not recieved my monitoring aggreement as of yet. I have tested negative on all drug screens thus far. My question is - what is the standard monitoring aggreement for something like this? If I am cleared for going back to a floor nursing position, what are the standard stipulations? To be able to perform a floor nursing position, I cant have restrictions such as: narcotics or supervisory restrictions. (Nurses are all supervisors on the floor of the CNA's)
