...... of working as an OR nurse?
I'm finishing up my pre-req's now, and have 2 tentative (*knock on wood*) acceptances to nursing school for the fall. I know that my being a Type 1 will come up for my pre-admission physical, and that is fine. Being diabetic is something I do not hide, though it did not come up during my nursing school interviews. I am on an insulin pump, and test 8-10x a day, and maintain fairly good control. The pump has been a God-send for me, allowing me great freedom with food, exercise......everything. I have only been diabetic for 7 years, diagnosed at the ripe age of 29 (LOL - did I just give away my age???? :imbar ).
Anyway, I'm just wondering how this will affect what type of nursing I am able to do. I'd really like to become an OR nurse, possibly even become a CRNA someday. I know the Disability Act is on my side, and have know there are many diabetic doctors around, though I'm not sure about surgeons.
Any info or tips would be appreciated!
