    I know you are scared, confused and up against a wall right now - but it always surprises me how smart intelligent educated people (which certainly includes nurses) don't know these things. With advent of the ACA no person can be denied health insurance based on past or current medical history. See if your state in included the Exchange Marketplace or if they have their own state specific program. If you are unemployed with children you may qualify for your state's version of Medicaid. I warn you that the offerings are slim and have high deductibles but there is insurance available to you and you may qualify for a subsidy to help pay for it. Still you will have a lot of out of pocket costs so you may need to look into payment plans for treatment as well a some kind of personal loans to cover the costs of UDS/contract compliance.

    If you currently do not have any assets/income you might qualify for your state's Medicaid plan. Also, it is open enrollment right now.

    Stop smoking, go loo for a job, wait to hear from the board. This is a lengthy process. It may/will take up to a year or more.
