  1. I am sure it's been asked

    Oh, yeah. I would definitely be open to interning. Yes, the peels I am wanting to do are the superficial. Such as the light ones that are offered with some facials at regular salon/spas.
  2. I am sure it's been asked

    Hmmmmm, if I got my aesthetician license, and didn't advertise my RN credentials, maybe. Ugh. This will probably end up being a phon cal. To both the BON and cosmotology board. It totally sucks that I see non medical people do things like botox parti...
  3. I am sure it's been asked

    So what about these salons that do the superficial chem peels. I know they don't have physicians. Is it the fact that I have an RN license that now makes it need an order? It is a gray area on that, I think. Because there are peels you can buy withou...
  4. I am sure it's been asked

    GrrlRN, I also found that. But it addresses specifically laser hair removal and micropigmentation. As far as chemical peels: would it be considered medication. If so, then who is doing these peels in beauty salons? Because I am sure a physician isnt ...
  5. I am sure it's been asked

    So if anyone could point me in the right directio: I am an RN. For 10 years I have done everything from Oncology to Psych. I would like to learn how to do chemical peels and the like. Not for a full time career, but just for side work. I am in Oklaho...
  6. I...made....it!!

    In July of 2009, I turned myself into the Peer program. Not as noble as it sounds, as I knew I was going to be reported for working while impaired (which ultimately was showing in my work). I valued my career even more than my family and was a work-...
  7. Doing GREAT...In recovery, but written up today at work.

    I was going to ask why it might affect your status in IPN also. in my state, we have peer. They don't care about your job if it is non-nursing. They don't need reports or anything from them. They only care about monthly evaluations, job reports and w...
  8. In our Peer program where I am, we have to do a minimum of 1 year supervised nursing (once approved to go back to work) with 6 consecutive months of that time handling/having access to narcotics/controlled substances. If we choose a nursing job that ...
  9. It may not help, but perhaps a statement from you physician or a drug/alcohol counselor or psychiatrist as to their opinion of your place in your recovery so far, your ability to work as a nurse, and other info like that.
  10. Your thoughts?

    When they made me cease practice again and get a psych eval, I told them "I am pregnant and can't even afford enough food for myself.". They said "In order to get well you may have to make sacrifices. You might have to give things up and live in a tr...
  11. Your thoughts?

    Yeah, well, at the end of that quote is an unwritten "Unless you are on the Peer committee...". The constant living in fear of doing something "wrong" in their eyes. Answering a question "wrong". it's not an unfounded fear, either. I got pregnant and...
  12. Your thoughts?

    You will love THIS then: someone I know knew a nurse that ended up being disciplined by the board. Because s/he was once in peer, the peer records NOW became un-confidential and sent to the board. It was now considered "exhibits" in her/his board hea...
  13. Your thoughts?

    As of a couple months ago, anyone who joins the Peer program in Oklahoma has a denotation online that shows they are in Peer when their license is looked up. This is something the public can see. Those who were already in it are grandfathered out of ...
  14. Pyxis machine and nurses diverting meds.....

    Where I used to work, they always treated Ultram as a controlled substance and it had to be counted. Even way back in 2004 when I started there. I can see, now, where this extra precaution was a good one! It was always kept in a drawer that could NOT...
  15. 4 quick questions about starting with First Lab

    Um...we have to call everyday, 365/24/7. Yes.....we get chosen on weekends, too. I have not yet heard of any of my fellow nurses being tested on Sunday. But we have had some Saturdays. We didn't used to hear of anyone getting picked on any weekend un...
