Can I secretly record a conversation at work if I'm being bullied?

Question Details:

I work as a Behavioral Health Technician and I am being bullied at work by 2 nurses and a shift leader. I work very hard and keep my unit I order. Several times the charge nurse and I haven't seen eye to eye and she puts me and other staff at risk because she mistreats our patients. I'm very good at what I do and build rapport with patients quickly. She is always telling on me and saying she doesn't know where I went to management. I have been getting write-ups and I have used all my PTO time because I don't feel like going to work. I've spokenwith the other BHT's and no one wants to work my hours.
