Case Result: RN with Positive Pre-Employment Drug Test for THC Reported to Board of Nursing

Registered Nurse

Primary Issue:
An RN tested positive for THC in a pre-employment drug screen and was reported to the Board of Nursing, which then started an investigation.

Benefit of Using Chapman Law Group:
The nurse retained our attorneys immediately after learning of the positive drug screen, in order to help protect his nursing license and clearing his name before a formal complaint was filed. The RN wanted to prevent a formal complaint from being filed so that he could continue to practice as a travel nurse and avoid a referral to the Intervention Project for Nurses (IPN).

We obtained several character references and multiple prior drug screens (all negative). We also had the RN evaluated by a board-certified addiction specialist. We submitted a complete addiction evaluation, four character references, evidence of completion of 12 CME credits, and a letter of explanation and apology to the Probable Cause Panel.

The Board of Nursing Probable Cause Panel issued a nondisciplinary Letter of Guidance. The RN avoided a formal complaint and avoided a referral to the IPN.
