I am currently doing my pre-reqs for the nursing program at my local college.
my problem is that I have problems w pulling my back out. yesterday, simple vacuuming
had me on ice. Two weeks ago, it was scrubbing the bathtub.
I have always heard that nursing was hard on the back, but what about those of us that have problems to begin with. What kind of a nurse will I be if I can't do some of the physical stuff required for care.?
I suppose I should start now trying to strengthen my core....since this is alot of my problem!
My mother in law even told me not to do the CNA program because of what it requires.
So...how the heck can I nurse???
I am a recent RN graduate with a pars fracture to a lumbar vertebra looking for work. During school I worked as an LPN in long term care before that a CNA in LTC totaling about about 8 years. My doctor recommends that I get a desk job - SURE ???
Anyway what are my options I need a job to pay off my student loans and start my life - I am 26 and freaked out. Please help.
