Here is another “ask me a question” and it comes from Krisi:
“I am disabled left hemiparesis. i am going to start a nursing rn degree soon. will it be possible for me to pass clinicals? i.e. i have three children, drive and live normally”
Krisi, thank you so much for your question. I would say yes especially if you have the drive to do it. I think any one can succeed at anything if they want it bad enough. Yes, you may have some trouble with the physical aspect of nursing (like lifting patients and be on your feet for 12 hours straight) but nursing is mental too. However, during clinicals your professor should be able to accomdate your needs and develop a schedule that fits your needs. I don’t think any disability should hold any one back from doing what they want in life. Plus you know yourself better than anyone else! So if you think you can do it…..do it!
I would say your an inspiration Krisi and I wish you very much luck in attaining your Registered Nurse RN! Please keep in touch!
