Possible defenses to alleged drug crimes

An arrest based on alleged criminal conduct can be detrimental to anyone's future. However, in Pennsylvania medical professionals who are licensed by the state may face the loss of their right to practice if they are convicted of certain crimes. While individuals in other professions may be able to go back to their careers once their convictions and sanctions are dealt with, doctors, nurses, and other professionals may be at a loss when they face challenges to having their licenses reinstated.

Addiction may be a problem for many U.S. nurses

According to data offered by a national psychological magazine, around one out of every 10 American nurses suffers from a substance abuse disorder or struggles with addiction. This is apparently close to the average statistic of everyday men and women outside of the nursing profession as well, but Pennsylvanians would be right to think that addiction in the nursing field could pose dangers to patients' health. If a nurse is found to be using illegal drugs they could lose their license, but for some getting help may be a way to protect their livelihood and their needed nursing licensures.

A person can spend years and even decades of their lifetime working toward a specific career goal: practicing medicine. After they complete their educational training they may have to sign on for a lengthy residency where their knowledge and skills are put to the test to determine if they are ready to work unsupervised with patients. Even after completing a residency a doctor may still be asked to complete further training if they wish to specialize in a particular area of their chosen field.
