Quote from BSNtobe2009
I'm going to direct this question to you...I have seen on some employment applications regarding receiving therapy, but it seems I have always seen this question presented as if you had a mental illness (depression, bi-polar, OCD, etc). I would think that since she is seeing someone totally voluntary, and for personal coping and not because she is having a condition treated, she would be well within her right not to disclose this information on an application, should it be asked.
Am I right on that?
First allow me to thank you all
for your kindness. It is very reassuring and I'm a bit overwhelmed.
Second, I want to put your minds at ease here since I may have worried some of you. I'm not terribly scarred over the whole thing, and I don't suffer on a daily basis. I just have some anger over it all that I want to release. After all, I've got to conserve energy for nursing school no? :wink2:
I just want to get this resolved so I can be an even better husband and father, and a stellar nurse.
I've seen similar things on applications (questions about actual disorders rather than voluntary visits). I wrote because I was wondering if nursing applications were any different. It sounds like that portion of the application process is the same.
Thank you all again!
