Disclosing a Mental Illness

  1. Does the Colorado BON ask or require an applicant to disclose a mental illness on its application for RN liscensure?

    Do you really need to ask someone else that? Can you not just look at the application yourself??

    I believe that most state license applications are available for download online, so it would be easy to see for yourself.

    Actually, you can't just find the application online. At least not for Colorado. I just did this yesterday. You have to do fingerprints and send them into CBI for a background check before you can even register on the DORA website to access their online application. But yes, they do ask a question about mental illness, which I found strange. That shouldn't automatically disqualify you, since mental illness could mean so many things, but I didn't fully read the question. I just marked no.
