    Mental health hospitalization

    I will have to disclose this during my renewal though. My board asks about hospitalizations.

    Mental health hospitalization

    Any nurses ever been hospitalized due to fleeting suicide ideation? I’m terrified. I was in a severely Abusive relationship for a couple years. I called 911 on my ex because He was going to kill me if I did not do something. He was taken to jail. Right away, I entered therapy. I’ve been going consistently since (Almost 2 years). I had a breakdown last month because he started harassing me and stalking me again. I called my therapist and spoke with her awhile, I told her it would be easier if I didn’t exist. She was concerned because she never heard me breakdown. She wanted the police to do a welfare check on me, however I wasn’t at my home at the time. They petitioned a 302 warrant. I cooperated. The police allowed me to drive back home and them go in the hospital. If they really thought I was that big of a threat, why did they let me drive? Never attempted, never had a plan. I was able to sign a 201 afterwards. This was an isolated incident. I’ve received legal counsel, now it’s a waiting game. Has anyone else been through this? My job has never been affected in anyway. Great job performance reviews and character references. No patient complaints, no medical errors. I’m in grad school with a 3.8 gpa. I’m terrified.

    What does my future hold?

    Absolutely not. Nurses cannot have them, Atleast where I live because federally it’s not legal.

    Thank you. Do you know of any nurses who disclosed mental health records? I was just told a “summary” Was all that was needed..

    What does my future hold?

    Hello all, I’ll cut to the chase. Please, don’t beat me up. I have been through enough. I had a positive drug test for thc. I know I messed up, I hate myself for it enough. I was extremely tired after working night shift and was questioned. I took the drug test because I thought I would be fine since it was a one time deal about a week prior. I have been fine since. This has been months ago. I do not drink or do any drugs. Never had any issues with medications, never had an error. I’ve been taking drug tests monthly to help with my case.. my attorney suggested it. I’m worried about disclosing my psych history even though I’ve been going to therapy since before my “incident.” I have a history of a voluntary hospitalization from bad ptsd from an abusive relationship and anxiety since my last license renew. I now have to sign over my mental health records. My work has never been affected by my ptsd or anxiety. If anything, it takes my mind off of it. I have plenty of evidence to show the board that I am a great nurse. Also, I have other healthy coping skills too; exercise, yoga, etc.  I am afraid that reaching out for help is what will screw me in the end. My attorney was veryoptimistic until I disclosed my mental health information to him. I’m in grad school too and I’m afraid that this will ruin school for me if they decide to do something to my license. does anyone have any advice? I’m an anxious mess and I did this all to myself.
