    I was accepted to Nursing school. I am schizophrenic. I have been stable for 6 years. As long as I take meds everyday I do not have trouble. Currently I am on SSDI. I want to become a Nurse but I am afraid I will not be able to get a job. My doctor said she would sign off for my physical that I am stable. But will the BON let me sit for my NCLEX? I do not have any cognitive impairment. I made a 100 on math TEAS V. When I was younger I would be in out of hospital because I would stop taking my meds. The meds have side effects like impotency and weight gain. I talked to Vocational rehab and they said that they could help me get job when I get licensed.

    Forgive my ignorance. May I ask what a declaratory order is? I'm assuming it's some type of certificate that a mental health professional must sign indicating you are cleared to work as a nurse. Am I correct?
