    Am I able to keep my license if I am not working as a nurse?
    Yes, at least in most states. You can place your license in an inactive status so your renewals are not as expensive, or for the matter of convenience in getting a job quickly, you can keep your license active. But you need to check on your state Board website to insure that you can keep your license without paid nursing work.

    Check the requirements with your board of nursing. A hiatus shouldn't hurt you even in a state with a minimum practice requirement.

    Do Not relinquish your license. Keep it active and use it when you are better.

    You have posted multiple threads that hit on the same topic. I'm sorry if I offend you by saying this, but it's becoming redundant and seems that you are just attention seeking at this point.

    I've written you a lot of heart felt replies as have others, but it seems you are taking none of that advice to heart, when you come back here 2 days later posting another topic looking for the same advice you have already been given.

    I wish you nothing but luck.

    I'm not dismissing your advice and apologize if I seem attention seeking. I just don't have anyone to talk to. When I got fired, I just put out a post and received overwhelming support and it felt really good. It's been 2 weeks and no job. My bills are coming up. So I'm here again looking for support. My family says the same thing. That I want attention. Really I just want someone to talk to. This is why I bottle things up.

    Nursing is the only thing I love and keeps me going for lack of better words. I'm afraid of what's gonna happen if I give up on it
    Sorry but this is as close to admitting suicidal ideation as anyone can get.

    Then quit with the dramatic wording and the veiled threats. I said what I said because I was disturbed that it sounded like you had gotten to a very dark place. You respond with snark. Nobody is going to want to help you when you lash out.

    I'm sorry if I came off short. I'm just done with failing. Done with trying my best and stilling making mistakes. Done with always being the disappointment in my family. I just want to be successful and a good nurse. I tried to get mental help and no one seems to be able to help me. I'm just scared and depressed. Please forgive me.

    Do not relinquish it. As Wuzzie said, keep it active so you can use it later.

    I didn't say I was being bullied on the thread. I said I WAS bullied so that's why I never had any self confidence.
