How a Seemingly Innocuous Act Can Lead to Loss of License

Here is a snapshot from the life of 4 nurse practitioners (NPs): NP A was going through a tough time—taking care of an ailing parent, worrying about a son out of a job, suffering from a sports injury, and working at a disorganized hospital. Her physician was not available, so she wrote herself a prescription for 4 pills for a controlled substance to get her through an especially bad week. A pharmacist reported her to the board of nursing. She is under investigation. NP B was going through a divorce. He had dinner and 2 glasses of wine with a friend. Later, he stopped by the hospital, where he had a moonlighting job. He was not working that night, but wanted to finish some charting. A nurse smelled alcohol on his breath and reported him to the board of nursing. He immediately arranged a drug and alcohol evaluation. The evaluator's conclusion was that he was not an alcoholic but was depressed. The board offered him its rehabilitation program as an alternative to discipline. He entered the program, under which he consented to monthly visits with the rehabilitation committee, random urine testing at his own expense, and counseling.
