Hi everyone out there in almost-nurse or new-nurse land,
I want to hear about other peoples' experiences with trying to get disability accommodations for taking NCLEX. One of my classmates and I both had bad experiences with this that amount to discrimination - it's messed up!
What have other people's experiences been?
Were you granted accommodations to bring essential medications or supplies into the exam with you (rather than locked up in another room), such as asthma inhalers, glucose tablets, insulin pumps, etc.?
If you applied for accommodations, did you have trouble scheduling your exam? Trouble reaching Pearson or getting called back? Much longer waits and fewer date options than your classmates?
Has anyone been granted any accommodations other than 9 hours to take the exam?
