Satchmo, No advice from me! I'm sorry for the last I gave.

States that allow RN's to practice on bup - maybe you already found....

MAYO Clinic 2012
List of States. Scroll down to Table 2 (R) side column - RN allow/ don't allow/no policy
http://www.academia.edu/1450860/Bupreno ... ontroversy

CA
A blog post describes CA nurses. Looks like a no. See the first comment below the article. https://janaburson.wordpress.com/2016/1 ... /#comments

MN
docm2 mentioned in his post that in his state, MN, RNs can practice on bup.

OR poster says yes
Per Dr J's http://suboxsearch.com/ and put in suboxone and nursing in both Suboxone Forum and Suboxone Talkzone, some interesting posts come up like 2009 Talkzone of Dr. J's, a poster mentions Oregon is ok for bup RNs http://suboxonetalkzone.com/suboxone-an ... re-worker/

PA no
nurse-suboxone-t1257.html

WA RN says ok to practice on bup
any-virginia-t7683.html

All 5 state examples correlate w the Mayo 2012 list.

Wish you the best! P

That Mayo Clinic document included the opinion of Heather Hamza, CRNA, MS, and Ethan O. Bryson, MD who are idiots in my opinion. Stupid idiots. I realize you just posted it to include the state list, but their opinion on the subject seems to be quite biased.

Hi Amy,

I know it's not funny, but I laughed anyway. Maybe it's the phrase itself which it just occurred to me is a humorous redundancy. Sometimes the stupidity is so egregious, we just have to add the " idiot" out of sheer frustration. And it kinda works, Feels much better.

Yes, there are plenty of highly educated stupid idiot out there, often bureaucrats or politicians or teachers with the power to cause much harm. It's our utter impotence which drives us to the redundancy.

I know, I know. I'm too easily entertained. Or something. :P

I am an RN as well on sub. IMO, it is not your employer's business. Keep it to yourself. I have taken pre employment drug screens without any issues

you could say something off hand about wondering if you should bring in your current prescriptions.
and if it does show up i would ask for a meeting and review with them that you are on a low maintenance dose.

my husband takes painkillers and he gets random tests thru work and any time they work at a powerplant. he always fails the test, but then shows them his prescription. he has never had a problem.
