I have a couple of questions involving background checks.
There are several questions asked when you fill out the application to take the NCLEX. 1. Abuse- will a complaint from neighbors will keep you from taking boards even if nothing was found? From what I understand your name is on the state abuse list even though it was a false report. 2. Mental illness- will getting psych help or being in a institution for depression and PTSD will keep you from taking boards?

I think they look for felony convictions. Not accusations. And I know plenty of nurses who are being treated for depression.
