Hard of hearing Pre-nursing student

  1. Good afternoon everyone...

    I am a pre nursing student hard of hearing with two in the ear hearing aids. Are there any other hard of hearing nurses... what have your challenges been? I could use a mentor. I am also wondering if I should apply to Lpn school or just Rn school. I am now a Cna 1 and will be taking medication technician in the fall and have no intention of taking Cna 2 now or do you think that would be a good?

    I just became a Cna about three weeks ago and I now work as one with a agency and in the mean time I have been applying to nursing homes.

    Thanks in advance

    Hey, I am also hard of hearing and wear BTE bilateral hearing aids. I just graduated with my BSN, and passed my NCLEX 2 days ago. Having hearing aids isn't a big deal as long as you are functional. I never had a problem, in fact almost everyone I came across were supportive of me. I think the biggest thing is having confidence in yourself. I use Littman Cardiology III and hear just fine with them. I use them over my hearing aids. Just go straight for your BSN if you can and dont worry about having hearing aids. People wear glasses.
