That's one I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.......if you don't have
to disclose it, for heaven's sake DON'T! I've seen nurses with mental illnesses get stuck in programs designed for those with substance abuse issues/drug diversion etc., and that's just not right. We don't deserve to be treated like criminals for having a brain that works a little differently from others'.
You're fortunate that your state doesn't ask straight questions, like Texas does (they want to know if you've been treated within the past 5 years for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or one of the other 'serious' psychiatric illnesses). In my state, the question is pretty ambiguous---their question is "Do you have any physical, mental, or emotional condition that impairs or
may impair your ability to practice nursing safely". Well, what is one supposed to say---that they're safe now, have been safe all along, but they MIGHT go off their rocker at some point and not be safe? Whoever would admit to something that has never happened and that their crystal ball can't predict?
It's foolishness, I tell you.......sheer foolishness.
