Does your friend with ADD take Ritalin (or another such drug in that family?)? It can make a person hyper-aware of their surroundings and thus can be very frusterating if they are trying to concentrate. And possibly having test anxiety could only make matters worse. Personal experience
hbncns35...my advice to those with disabilities that are pursuing their nursing degrees is to: stick with it, find ways to learn-even if they're not conventional (be creative!), and never be afraid to ask for help. Most of all, don't let your disability control you, it is only one
aspect of your life. Good luck!
