I understand this topic could be considered a topic in recovery, but the responses in that group have not been knowledgeable. My nursing license is currently on probation for narcotic diversion in IL and I am looking forward to my next steps after reinstatement. My dream is to get my masters and advance my career. I do have 2 years experience of inpatient psych and have thought about becoming a psychiatric nurse practitioner. To any who have experience with this, are nurses with addiction histories considered viable candidates in the job market? Thanks to all who can offer some insight!
