I’ve applied to dmu for adult nursing and I’ve been quiet depressed for a while. If I go on antidepressants will I pass the occupational health check for the nursing course I have applied for?

Hi, it’s hard to give an exact answer as it depends on your personal circumstances & the universities occupational health department. However, occupational health are there to support you and I have heard of students on nursing & midwifery courses who have or are taking medication (or receiving other treatments) for depression or other mental health issues.
This article on the forum about working as a healthcare professional with a MH diagnosis may help you too: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wik...alth_Diagnosis
Sorry I can’t give a more definite answer (but don’t let any worries about occupational health stop you from getting support or treatment).
