Some states now now require an applicant to disclose any type of mental illness, including depression, and also to disclose the meds the applicant takes. This can cause the applicant to be required to attend counseling or psychiatric evaluations, and ongoing monitoring, to determine and monitor their stability, safety, and ability to function as a nurse. And like per usual, once one state gets an idea, the rest almost always follow the leader. I don't recall the one state I found particularly offensive about this subject, but the requirements they had listed for a nurse with a disclosed mental health issue were much like the requirements for a nurse that had diverted drugs from the workplace- random drugs tests, ongoing evaluations, and the like. I really couldn't believe it. I've also heard that some psychiatrists now only accept cash payments and advise their patients to pay cash for their meds, as an attempt to keep their mental health issues out of the digital/public world, because it is harming the very people that have realized they have a problem, and have taken steps to deal with their problem. I hope, OP, this information doesn't add to your anxiety, it just is what it is. It'd a good topic to bring up with your doctor, the fact that your BON may require disclosure of your diagnosis, or treatment, or condition. Tred lightly, and protect your privacy at all costs, is my two and a half cent's worth.
