Hi i'm new here and i am a pre-nursing student. I am hard of hearing and i really want to work in labor delivery in a hospital. But im worried i wont be able to because of my hearing (the guy who did my hearing test said i hear 14% of words clear in my right ear and 44% clear in my left ear). Ive seen alot of medical shows and i know that doctors and nurses wear that mask thing that covers there mouth and i rely alot on lip reading. Does anyone know if theirs a minimum hearing requirement for nurses at hospitals?
