There has been no policy in place for marijuana card users with an RN license, and the BON in AZ has yet to create one. At this point, every matter is on a case by case basis. Typically, if a nurse has a marijuana card, and tests positive but there is no allegation of impairment at work, the BON would send out a Letter of Concern. However, no other action is taken unless allegations of impairment during employment are included.
NOTE that since there is no set policy, mitigating factors may and often do change the outcome of BON's response.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
