Drug Monitoring Programs

Intervention Program (IP)

The Intervention Program 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 convictions for Driving While Impaired (DWI).
Objectives of the Intervention Program 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.
