Bipolar spectrum disorders (BSDs) are serious psychiatric conditions correlated with high rates of suicide, substance misuse, hospitalization, and cardiometabolic diseases. Little is known about how BSDs affect American registered nurses (RNs) diagnosed with the condition. Occupational Health Nurses working with a  general working population will gain knowledge and identify risk factors and socioeconomic impacts influencing American RNs diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
