    Down to single digits....

    This is here say. Someone I know who knows someone knew of a nurse positive for the last test. Results came in after marbling out. A new complaint kicked in and a new mandatory program started for this nurse. Brought that nurse back in with a complaint generated by the BRN. I believe it. But, of course, couldn't corroborate that story. Ask your support group leader, they might know of a case.

    Maybe HR Won’t Notice My Accusation, ha, ha?

    Just wanted to write that I'm rooting for you. All of us are in some way.

    Do you miss it?

    Do I miss it? No. But, man I am always thinking how lucky I am. Got my life back together. Next month I pick up my "X" chip...yup, 10 years. No etoh, no mind-altering substances....I'm clacking away on this typing and I don't know why I still continue. Life is a lot better that's for sure. Thoughts are still there....maybe I can have a glass of red wine with the rib eye.....then I play the tape forward. Nah, I'm good. I find myself browsing through this forum last couple of days. Guess I'm blown away that a decade is coming up. For those still in, hang in there it'll end soon. Being broke sucked that first year and a half : (

    MSN done

    After 3 years I can now officially put MSN after my name! Graduated and walked last week. Woohoo! If someone were to ask me 10 years ago if I’d still be sober and that I’d finish a BSN and an MSN I would say that can’t possibly be me. Ten years ago, unemployed, removed from practice, and on the verge of losing everything. I got out Nov 2012 from mandatory program and started MSN Fall 2016. This Nov will be 10 yrs sober from etoh and mind-altering substances. Quality problems now is what do I do with this grad degree. Just wanted to check in because this place in August 2008 was my only place to see there was hope. People here are more honest than the nurses I had in support group. Well, have a good day you amazing people! Couldn’t have done it without your help.

    Going back to school while in monitoring

    Did my RN-to-BSN during monitoring. Program didn’t require clinicals which was a plus, but it did require an unencumbered license. Worked out in my case. My clinicals was in a simulation lab...no patient care. A lot depends on school, type of monitoring program, etc, especially when looking to go into an APRN graduate program. Best to you.

    RESUME tips for "us"

    11 months total time didn’t work gap reason: tending to family illness went through 8 interviews until finally landing a position maintained current certs during time off, i.e. BLS, ACLS, CCRN, etc didn’t get any new certs previous employment...I made it a point to place contact number with HR number, not my immediate boss. Nor did I mention my immediate boss. First few interviews is nerve racking and shows the nervousness. It gets better. Think of interviews as practice big companies that I want to eventually work for I saved for the future...meaning I did not want to apply while in mandatory program. I will apply and save the dream job after monitoring. I did not intend to say my constraints until after I’m extended an offer. (Everyone different on this issue) last, to make myself more employable?? Be confident and reassuring during interview. When it comes to the past, own it and accept it. I didn’t apologize for it. I regretted it and made me a better person today. Bad decisions have consequences. Boom! Got the job!
