I'm a RN for 8yrs, went through the nurses probation for monitoring of substance abuse yrs. ago, have been sober going on 5 yrs and have been diagnosed with a mental disorder...Borderline Personality Disorder. I am stable on my meds, see a psychiatrist monthly and work full time. I want to go for my BSN, but I hear now there is a background check. Does anyone know if a personality disorder would keep me from getting my BSN via the new background checks? I don't want to go through that extra schooling and then to find that I cannot nurse.
