Drug testing interruptions

14 Dec 2019 11:13 PM | John Furman

The Washington State Nursing Commission (Board) is reviewing its policy on granting "interruptions" from drug testing for participant family vacations, professional education, personal considerations e.g. funerals, child/spouse surgeries... I'll throw in an off the wall situation as in WA there are recovery groups that do things like climbing Mt Rainier.  Would appreciate sharing of your policies on drug test interruptions either within this conversation or by contacting me directly at John.Furman@doh.wa.doh  Sincerely,
