HiddenShadow20's Latest Activity

  1. Hi there, This past year I was first admitted to a psychiatric hospital for some psychotic features due to my bipolar II disorder. I agreed to a voluntary temporary detention order (TDO). I am now on the right medication and don't expect any additional issues ever. Also, I entered a rehab facility where I stayed for a month due to some alcohol issues I was having. With all this being said, can I still expect to become a nurse? What kind of barriers will I face? Do I really need to disclose any of this to any nursing boards to receive licensure? I live in a mid-atlantic, east coast state and hope to be license through this state or a bordering one. Thanks!

    Rehab? Asking for a future nurse

    Thanks for everyone's responses. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and definitely had some psychotic features at one time and was admitted to a hospital where I agreed to a voluntary temporary detention order. With this new information, should I expect to receive additional monitoring? Do I need to disclose this as well?? Thanks!

    Rehab? Asking for a future nurse

    Ok, but I was never Formally diagnosed with alcoholism despite getting treated for it. Is this something that could haunt me later on?

    Rehab? Asking for a future nurse

    Hi everyone, I am a male who is looking to get into nursing. My question concerns the fact that I went to rehab for alcohol addiction. Is this something that I have to disclose when I take the NCLEX? Is this something I have to disclose to a nursing board so that I can become licensed? Please let me know!!! My main concern is that it could impede me from becoming a nurse.
