I recently got hired as an RN and they want me to have a physical examination. I'm sure they will probably do the drug screening as well, not worried about that at all. However I am concerned about if they were to do an alcohol screening. Has anyone ever been tested for their alcohol level before employment???

Quite a few hospitals as well as travel nursing agencies screen for alcohol.

It would take a special individual to show up for a drug test/interview with alcohol in his or her system.

Concerned about the alcohol screen? Why w.......nevermind. Can't say I've ever been tested for it; wouldn't bother me if they did though.
