For many nurses who have run afoul of the AZBN the knowledge held within their cases, by them, is remarkably corrupted to adhere to a political structure that has very little connection with the actual field of nursing. Meaning there can be connections outside clinical practices designed to eliminate the nurse from practising and done so without substantial or legitimate evidence. When this happens it is a known entity of fabricated evidence for political favors. This of course has in many cases interfered with public safety. And if you think that the deaths of many patients from undocumented and unnecessary actions isn’t 100x more than the now fashionable mass shootings you’re ignorant. The following letter informs many and defines this principle. A nurse of many years with a good record gets toasted to a crisp by nothing but pure politics and revenge from an incredulous process.
this is what I wrote to each health committee member and az central news and tuscon news just now:
when are you going to expose your sick and twisted board of nursing and how they are destroying nursing careers preferentially and unjustly?
i was ordered a pysch eval, cornered and bullied into signing an agreement agreeing to drug rehab, being an addict, narcotic sponsorship, serial pysch evals, and much more because I had thc in a hair follicle sample..(preceded by 32 perfect, flawless years of professional nursing, and NO history of ever using drugs or being investigated, suspected or accused of using drugs, diverting drugs, injuring a patient, and no personal legal record )..the board deduced I must have been impaired while treating patients. at the same time the supreme court ruled’ cannabis use does not mean or equal impairment” !!! I had a valid AZ medical cannabis card for treatment of my diabetic neuropathy. Governor Ducey told me my civil rights were violated, felt bad enough to extend my unemployment benefits from the mandated 6months to 2.5 years ! i signed the agreement, as the board told me this was THE ONLY way to get my licenses back because they had suspended them in the name of ‘threat to public safety’ . I signed the agreement, went to my first of 500 narcotic anonymous meetings and then decided ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT ! I AM NOT AN ADDICT BECAUSE I USED MEDICAL CANNABIS, THEY HAD ZERO PROOF I WAS IMPAIRED OR EVER WAS A THREAT TO ANY PATIENT’ I told them what they could do with the agreement and because i renigged on the agreement my licenses were suspended for 5 years and i cannot get them back unless i prove i have been in drug rehab for 2 years for medical cannabis that i have not even ingested since july 24, 2015 !….there are sooo many wronged nurses and this is a huge story and HAS and will continue to have a HUGE impact on the AZ future nursing shortage….social media is a powerful animal….help expose the injustices that the governor and sen barto know about but continue to turn a blind eye to. Be the first to proactive tackle this beast instead of covering in the ‘aftermath’. Several nurses will be more than happy to help you and provide the proof and the stories behind the injustices doled out by this sick, twisted and corrupt nursing board….see the facebook page ‘Arizona board of nursing watchdogs’ page for much much more of what I am reporting….don’t turn a blind eye, expose this corruption, be the person, the station, the mechanism that rights the wrongs !
