I began nursing school six years ago, but dropped out due to personal reasons. Since, I have had a total hip replacement of my right hip joint and have been diagnosed with RA.
I would really love to go back to nursing school, but I am getting a lot of negative feedback from friends and family who think I have no business going into nursing due to my arthritis. I'm not sure I would be accepted into nursing school again due to my physical disability.
I just wanted to know other peoples' opinions. Should I continue to pursue a career in nursing or am I just wasting my time?
