  1. Non-negative drug screen

    What does this mean? I'm in TPAPN. My test was Friday and the results just posted. I've never had this before. I called recovery trek but the person who manages tpapn is out until next week. What happens now? I have not drank and have not used any d...
  2. Kel, So happy for you! It feels so good doesn’t it! To a job well done, cheers!
  3. 90 day countdown.

    I guess it is fermented so has tiny amounts of alcohol in it. I am sure it depends on the quantity and brand. I did try to avoid it though if I thought I may be tested..!
  4. Tpapn weekends

    Weekends are not restricted in TPAPN, that I know of. I was in it for 3 years and never had a problem. The first 6 months they say no narcs or call, and you can never be a supervisor, but for the most part, nights and weekends are fine.
  5. Allergies on TPAPN

    Zyrtec, claritin, Xysol are all fine with tpapn. Benadryl is a different story and they "could" test you for it. Stay away from all the "D" meds, with dextromethorphan. They test for that too.
  6. 90 day countdown.

    Kel, I am pretty sure you know how my release went. I was on my 4th case manager of my program and I am pretty sure she was not very computer savvy. She was very nice though. I emailed her on my day of completion asking if it was indeed completing t...
  7. Living while in TPAPN

    I don't really know for sure if it would really affect a drug screen. But, I know that when I was in monitoring, I would have been way to scared to risk it. I went through monitoring super paranoid though, so I may have been over the top.
  8. RN with stipulations looking for work in DFW

    Yes, the nurse who worked at Kindred had a public board order. Hang in there!
  9. RN with stipulations looking for work in DFW

    I second UHS. I worked for one in the beginning of my monitoring but did not have public stips, but I worked with other nurses that did.. It can be tough but it is worth it get through what you have to and have a job. I also know a new grad that work...
  10. It is DONE.

    Well, in a very anticlimactic finish, I have completed my 3 years in TPAPN. It is funny how I have dedicated 3 years of my life to checking in and being paranoid, for it just to come to an end like that. It doesn't feel real. Tomorrow I don't have to...
  11. So, I was all happy when I received a final year step down email stating there would be less selections. Things have been super tight with money this past year and I was excited not to be spending 150-200 per month testing.. Since receiving the emai...
  12. So much for "step down year" in TPAPN!

    They will probably hit you with 3 in a row pretty quickly. That seemed to be the pattern for me the last year. I did have 18 in my final year and was not tested again after that. But, as some on here said they got out early, I did not. I had to conta...
  13. To TPAPN or not...

    You will make it through this. Best case scenario for you is EEP. If you are not an addict or alcoholic, then TPAPN is not really appropriate for you anyway. Definitely ask about EEP. Your employer has a duty to report under the state law, and it is ...
  14. I am DONE! Finally

  15. Texas BNE

    How disappointing. I would contact TPAPN at this point. It may have fallen through the cracks on their end, but either way, you have a right to know where the hold up is coming from. So sorry.
  16. Probation Questions

    TPAPN is 3 years for RNs and 5 years for APRNs. There are jobs out there that are TPAPN friendly, you just have to find them and be willing to keep an open mind. Most behavioral health facilities are TPAPN friendly. Big name hospitals, THR, HCA, Bayl...
  17. I am in TPAPN, my license has remained a compact license the whole 3 years. A nurse I recently met at one of my meetings was reported to TPAPN last spring (after the new enhanced compact came out) and she stated her license was changed to a single st...
  18. So obsessive and overwhelmed.

    I am due to complete monitoring within the next few weeks. I believe I had my last UDS last week unless they throw something crazy at me. I am seriously freaking out being this close to finishing without a scratch on my record. You know what I have ...
  19. Positive UDS

    Perse, I don't mean to hijack the thread but I am fearful I will have a positive from my last UDS. It is seriously probably my last UDS of monitoring too. I ate Korean food the night before and although has crossed my mind to watch the soy sauce in t...
  20. Holiday testing

    In TX, we check in everyday of the week, holidays and all. I have never been selected to test on a holiday. I have only been selected to test one time on a weekend (Saturday), and that was about 9 months into the program. That was back when we used R...
  21. So obsessive and overwhelmed.

    We ate about 6:30pm and I tested at 10am the next morning. So, about 14-15 hours. In my head I am thinking there is no way I consumed enough to test positive, but I am so irrationally fearful. Someone posted that we are in purgatory and it is so true...
  22. Positive UDS

    Hang in there Red. I am sorry you are going through this. Unfortunately, there are people out there that love to kick people when they are down and love to be in a position of power. I have seen a lot of those folks since working in the behavioral he...
  23. I tested positive while in recovery now what??

    I am wondering what has happened with this? What did they do to you for a positive for Benadryl?
  24. Uds 1 day before completion!

    This is SO wrong. A test within the week and a hair test 2 weeks ago. They trying to mess with your head for sure. DO NOT LET THEM. Finish STRONG. They are just showing their true colors and what it's all about, the money. Congrats on being done, so ...
  25. Stick a fork in it!

    That is so great. Hoping for the same outcome, I am at 17 tests for the year. I appreciate your response Blondie!
