Hello my name is Susanna.
I am a recent new grad, that used different types of accommodations throughout my first degree in psychology and for my second degree in nursing. Such as a reader, and dictation. My road of becoming a nurse has been a different and difficult adventure. I'm proud to say that I have passed NCLEX. Now it's time for me to look for a job. I'm becoming more worried that I might not be hireable due to the fact that I might need reading and writing accommodations even more afraid but this dream and hard work of being a nurse is not possible anymore.
I just spoke to someone from ANA, and wishing me luck for finding an employer that would be willing to purchase such needs to allow me to work could be unlikely. I'm extremely disappointed and hurt all over again just like I was told during nursing school
, as unlikely I will pass my classes and be a nurse. Now I'm being told it's unlikely for me find a job. I'm wondering if there our current working nurses that use accommodations such as dictation or reading on the nursing floor? I know I can't let these others get me down it's really hard. Is there anyone out there in the state of Arizona use this type accommodations or is it's just not possible. I know and the state of California things are much better I don't want to leave my family here to live out my dreams of becoming a nurse. I love to help those, and I have seen and experience the love of caring for others in the nursing field is unbelievably wonderful something that is priceless I want to be part of.
Any advice for those nurses out there in the real world on the nursing floor that use these types of accommodations and that it is possible.
