Hi everyone! I FINALLY got work releases signed and am allowed to start searching for jobs. I have, but with no luck so far. Is there anyone out there who is on TPAPN and working in DFW? Does anyone know of any jobs in this area that would take a TPAPN nurse? I have a 6-month narcotic restriction along with all the others (not working for more than 12 hours, no more than 94 hours in two weeks, etc. etc.) My husband was furloughed and as you can see I have no job either so I'm getting desperate. I appreciate any advice or leads!

I am also looking for jobs in DFW. I also looked north of Dallas and was hired at a facility then Covid 19 happened and they said they could not do it. Also had another place say they could not due to C19. I have called nursing homes and asked if they work with tpapn and had a few directors ask what tpapn was. I plan on just applying on indeed and asking them once they reply. I tell them about tpapn at first since I don’t want to waste time on interviewing if they do not even work with tpapn. I asked a few places and they said no to tpapn nurses. If you have any luck anywhere please share since I’m worried about finding a place also. Good luck

Nothing yet... I have gone through all of indeed in DFW applying. I have had about ten contact back but when I mention tpapn they either don’t reply or just say they can’t.

I wouldn’t mention TPAPN to anyone until you are all the way through the interview and get a gauge on how they feel about you in general. You want to get in an interview- in front of the people hiring you and make a good impression. Let them get to know you and like you and THEN tell them. They’ll be much more likely to work with you after they get to know you. I wouldn’t tell any recruiter. Your application won’t make it past them. I would only put it on an application if it *specifically* asks about restrictions. Have you applied to UHS facilities? They work with TPAPN. Even then I’d wait until the interview is almost over before telling them. I hope that helps!

I still find medical nursing really something myself. I feel very honored for this second chance and I would do anything to be in this profession. I learned not to humiliate a nursing board for they only win if you get in their way but I finally got the medication I needed. An injection for bipolar. I would like to be at a pharmaceutical company working to develop drugs and things of that sort but I prefer skilled nursing homes. Some places however do not work with nurses with red flag actions. If I spend all my time contacting and asking if they will work with me and they will not then I will have to return to the program and tell them I tried with the majority of facilities in Texas. It was a struggle being a new nurse so I figure this will be just as hard. I can only try my best but I live 4 hours from Dallas and plan to commute and live both places. I cannot drop in and interview like I live there or I would. I do hope to find a nursing home cause I think this is the funnest things in the world to do like give shots and iv antibiotics. I would think they would want a tpapn nurse to work with a supervisor. I could administer all the medications while the other charted and assessed the patient. I think it would cover more area and be easier for the facility. I do want to interview but I’ve tried two places and both did not hire me. One went as far as speaking with my case manager. I do sometimes wonder if they need nurses like they say. I just want to see this in action so I can understand how this is working with direct supervision and if it is really a burden to be with tpapn for the facility.
if I could win the powerball the whole world would know who I am however I think I have the next best thing being a Texas LVN. Thanks for your support.

I must have misunderstood you! I thought you lived in DFW. Please private message me if you need any support or a friend to talk to. We can talk more privately about everything 🙂
