ISNAP is designed as a confidential program. This means a nurse who self-reports and maintains full compliance with their Recovery Monitoring Agreement (RMA) will not have their name presented to the Indiana State Board of Nursing (ISBN) for a public hearing. If a nurse becomes non-compliant they will have their file closed with ISNAP and their case will be heard before the ISBN at a public hearing.
ISNAP also maintains confidentiality in accepting reports of a danger to public safety from a concerned citizen, nurse or administrator until the Attorney General’s Office takes action against a nurse’s license. During the course of the investigation the identity of the individual who submits the report remains confidential. ISNAP is required by the board to obtain the name and address of the person who submits a report of suspected impairment or danger to public safety.
