    Diversion programs for nurses in trouble.

    The Boards of Nursing in all states work hard before issuing licenses to make sure the nurses they license are both qualified and capable. After licensing, nurses who break the law or endanger patients are subject to investigations to determine whether the license should be suspended or revoked. But what happens to nurses who pose a danger to patients or themselves through substance abuse or mental illness?

    Despite the notion that nurses should have a greater understanding of substance abuse and chemical dependency, the profession in not immune from either. In fact, some studies show RNs may actually be at a greater risk for substance abuse based on the higher level of stress involved in working in a healthcare environment and caring for acutely ill patients. Add in the availability and opportunity to access controlled substances in the work place and the combination may push some nurses over the edge.

    In California, the Board of Registered Nursing promotes its diversion program as a way for these nurses to keep their licenses and get help with their problems while it protects the public. The program, a voluntary, confidential program for RNs whose practice may be impaired due to chemical dependency or mental illness, also serves as an alternative to the traditional disciplinary process.

    Do you think diversion programs make a difference, or is it better to revoke these licenses and bar the nurses from practice?

    Re: Diversion programs for nurses in trouble.

    The 1987 Legislature enacted Section 61-3-29-1 of the Nursing Practice Act which authorizes the Board of Nursing to create a Diversion Program to rehabilitate nurses whose competencies may be impaired because of the use and/or abuse of drugs or alcohol so that nurses can be treated and returned to or continue in the practice of nursing in a manner which will benefit the public. The intent of the program is to develop a voluntary, confidential alternative to traditional disciplinary actions which may include suspension or revocation of a nurse's license. Traditional, or formal, disciplinary actions are a matter of public record.

    Chemically dependent nurses may be admitted to the Diversion Program through self-reporting and requesting admission or following the receipt of a complaint alleging use and/or abuse of alcohol or drugs. The Board may also encourage a licensee to be admitted to the program following a formal disciplinary process.

    It is the Board's wish that nurses who are chemically dependent will recognize their illness and will seek treatment and admission into the Diversion Program for monitoring so that a formal action by the Board is not required. Nurses who self-report their chemical dependency will be referred directly to the Diversion Program. All Diversion Program records, are confidential and destroyed upon successful completion of the program.

    Nice post about nurses and their services. Nurses really have to bear a lot during their service. I think it would not bar the nurses from practice.
