Thanks, Leslie =)
I have pretty mild schizophrenia and it's the dissociative type which isn't as bad as the other types. so i think i can at least work part time. in a couple of months, i'll be in pretty good shape i think. psychiatrist said i could be optimistic about working. anyway, i still have one more year left of nursing school i need to get back to next spring. i think school nursing maybe at a college would be quite easy? or maybe a nurse counselor?
i do think with a mild form of it, you should be ok.
i think the more insight you have into your debility, the more power you will have in steering yourself in the most therapeutic direction.
and just by virtue of seeking an 'easy' nsg job, it implies that you know your abilities as well as your limitations.
i really like hm2viking's suggestion of meeting w/a vocational counselor.
and if you can get your foot in the door, i agree about school nsg in a college.
and, if you got a job in a college, you could pursue your education for free/little $$.
i really am rooting for you, deb.
i think you have much to contribute to our profession.
