Intervention Program (IP)
The IP is a voluntary alternative to disciplinary action for a nurse who:
- Tests positive for an illicit substance on a random or pre-employment screen. An illicit substance is defined as any drug contained in Schedule I or Schedule VI of the Controlled Substances Act of North Carolina, or any drug for which the nurse cannot provide a legitimate prescription of their own.
- Has a Driving While Impaired (DWI) conviction involving one or more grossly aggravating factors.
Objectives of the IP include the following:
- Early recognition and intervention for nurses who may abuse drugs/alcohol or be chemically dependent.
- To ensure the health, safety and welfare of the public through a program that monitors nurses testing positive for illicit substances.
If you would like additional information about the IP, you may contact the Monitoring Coordinator using one of the following methods:
