They are now testing for it in the nursing and healthcare career field. A statement was posted in the Nurses monthly newspaper in S.C. it said that anybody taking Suboxone would not be allowed to work until they were completely clean of this drug!!! So now we know!! They are looking for it. Everybody isn't testing, obviously, because I was just hired for a new position. But the word is getting out there. I just can't catch a break!! When I was taking pain meds for migraines, it was o.k. Because they were aware of it, and I had a legal prescription. But now, legal or not, it is not acceptable to take Suboxone if they find out!! Just thought you might want to know!!! NIK
This news is upsetting. I am on subs, currently trying to get off but I am trying to get into a nursing program- I'm accepted just one last thing the UA. Many people told me not to worry they prob don't test for it but it's the Medical field- Why wouldn't they? Now I get I can say I'm on them but it's a sticky situation- will they allow me to do clinical? Will it haunt me in my career? I just want to really start my life & get on the right track. I've wasted years being an addict. I finally feel like I can accomplish something good but there are so many hurdles holding me back. I just don't want to pay the rest of my life for bad choices when I was young. Thanks for the post & good luck ;)
