Abstract:
This study was designed to identify social life characteristics associated with the variance in charges and penalties against chemically dependent registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) in Arizona. Black's (1976) theory on the behavior of law was used as the basis for the conceptual framework of the study. Data were collected from a sample of 203 chemical dependency misconduct records at the Arizona State Board of Nursing. LPNs were more likely to have licenses revoked than RNs. Nurses holding staff positions were more likely to have licenses revoked than nurses holding administrative, supervisory or head nurse positions. Significant differences were also found between chemically dependent nurse offenders and non-offenders when comparing RNs to LPNs; married nurses to separated/divorced nurses; full-time nurses to part-time nurses; diploma or associate degree prepared nurses to baccalaureate or higher degree prepared nurses and male to female nurses.
