Ohio Board of Nursing – Alternative Program for Chemical Dependency

Post by: Eric Jones | Posted Date: September 10th, 2014 | Categories: Licensure & Disciplinary


The Ohio Board of Nursing’s Alternative Program for Chemical Dependency (Alternative Program) is a non-disciplinary, non-public monitoring program for licensees or certificate holders who are chemically dependent or substance abuse issues.

Disciplinary action against licensees and certificate holders

The Ohio Board of Nursing established The Alternative Program under Section 4723.35 of the Ohio Revised Code and Chapter 4723-6 of the Ohio Administrative Code. The laws and rules allow the Ohio Board of Nursing to abstain from taking disciplinary action against licensees and certificate holders who are found eligible for, and successfully complete, the Alternative Program. In addition to recognizing that chemical dependency is a disease, the Alternative Program was also developed to protect the public by encouraging early intervention and treatment for chemically dependent individuals.
