- Dec 3, '11 by ZaphodIm sorry no one replied-but yes you can work. HIV is not the big deal nowadays if you follow your medication regimen. Even better try to secure a position in education , good luck.
- Jan 28, '12 by PfiestyI have worked with HIV positive nurses. We thought they are safer in well-patient environments because we were always fearful that they would pick up an infection from the patients. We were protective. But probably didn't need to be. One nurse I knew worked for the Florida State AHCA inspecting facilities and had no patient contact other than interviews.
- Mar 23 by SuzieVNAnother question is, is it safe to be a nurse, not knowing if any of your patients have this, that, or the other? Who's more apt to infect the other party- the nurse, or the patient?
