Hi there all you fellow recovering nurses. I am one of these and got my license back and have 2 more years of probation. It was a very hard and long road of recovery and being strong enough to apply for nursing license. So clean, sober and a nurse. Now what? the stigma attached to us is something. Of coarse we have a disease but how does diverting and impaired sound on resume. I have tried every recovery center within 100 miles of where I live. It seems to be fruitless. I know what I did and am still paying for my transgressions. I am in MO.
I can't believe I found this site. Amazing. Glad to know you guys are out here with me. Sometimes I sit and cry as there are postings but having someone take the time to offer you a second chance is very rare.
Thanks for letting me vent.
