Any chemical, physical or mental impairment and/or disability or treatment for such that impacts the advanced practice registered nurse's ability to practice nursing safely, and a description of accommodations and/or practice limitations needed, if any
I see a pychiatric nurse practitioner and she prescribes my meds. When I told her I needed something for stateboard due to my bipolar, she recommended non-disclosure. When I first applied for my license in 1992 I did not have that diagnosis so there was no reason to worry about that question. In 1999 when I was diagnosed and it came time to renew my license I freaked out.
I took her advise and have not self-disclosed my illness. I have enough hassles in life without having state board breathing down my neck. I don't want to have to enter a recovery program. Whether MI or substance abuse, it's the same program. Do they even have a right to ask that question? I am a nurse practitioner and none of my collegues are aware that I have bipolar.
