The facts: I am 39 year old male and very overweight.
I want to shift careers and become an RN. I was in retail sales which required standing and walking on non carpeted floors for 50 hours per week for 15 years. I am currently a caregiver for my parents.
The dilema is that I am very overweight. I have talked to several nurses. One in ER, One in NICU and One in a LTC facility and they all said that other than some small sized cubicle/exam areas that my weight shouldn't be a factor if I can handle the endurance.
In -your- opinion is this correct? I have been overweight all my life and its probably not gonna change massively in the near future. Let me know what you think.
