I have taken all but 2 classes needed for my BA in Psychology and I'm getting ready to start nursing school in August. My goal for years has been to become a psych nurse.
However, in the interim, I want to work as a MHT.
I was a patient in a psych ward a few years back for depression before I got on an antidepressant. The question is WILL THAT KEEP ME FROM BEING HIRED? I was told by one person that they look back as far as two years on your record. Does anybody have advice or knowledge about this? I'm from NC if that matters.
Thank you for taking the time to read and reply.
