CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY DISCIPLINE PROGRAM
The Program is a disciplinary program for a nurse whose competency may be impaired because of the use of drugs and/or alcohol. The nurse, for various reasons, is not eligible for the Alternative Program for Chemical Dependency. Participation in the program is public information and documents are posted at the on-line verification system which further describe the specific case.
Objectives of the Chemical Dependency Discipline Program include the following:
1) To ensure the health and safety of the public through a program that closely monitors nurses impaired by drugs and/or alcohol;
2) Provide a process for nurses to recover from impairment and become safe practitioners.
