Hello all--I was recently admitted into an RN/FNP program which I am THRILLED about! As part of the admissions process I had to have a physical done and provide vaccination records. When I went to my PCP for the physical form, she told me that she would sign the physical form if I later provided proof to her that I had disclosed my HBV status to my school. When I got home, I called the local health department to ask them about disclosure policies--they told me that I do not have to disclose my HBV and that I may want to keep it to myself because of possible discrimination.
I feel very uncomfortable with my physician at this point. At the very least, I think it's time to find a new PCP.
Am I under any legal obligation to disclose my health information to my school? Can my school revoke my admission based on this?
