Hello all! I need some advise from you guys! I've been searching for days and cannot find my answer. I have been an RN for 10 yrs, mostly ER. After an injury, I became addicted to oppiods.... Saddest, most humiliating time of my life. After inpatient and outpatient treatment, (and continued NA/AA meetings) I am very happily sober. This whole experience has really opened up my eyes to many things. One being, I don't want to be a nurse any longer. I am planning to go back to school for a completely unrelated field. However, I do need to work while going to school. After my admitted oppiod addiction I was referred to TPAPN. If I stop this program, my RN license will be revoked. I was an EMT prior to becoming a nurse. I am told that getting reinstated only requires a 24 HR refresher course and retesting. I loved being an EMT and I do have a passion for emergency medicine. The hours and schedule would also work great with my classes. My only problem is if the BON revokes my RN license for not completing TPAPN will I even be able to get certified and work as an EMT?? (TPAPN = 3yrs program) I welcome any advise and even constructive criticism. Sorry that was so long. I tried to skip as much as possible and get to the point.
