Hey, congratulations on Nursing School
. Have you been accepted or are you in the process of applying? [I am a little dense tonight, smile]
Nope, you have the ADA (Americans with Disability Act) behind you. Continue reading on this forum and you will find many other posters who are dealing with their Deafness/deafness and attending a nursing program
You must be an advocate for yourself! As Eleanor Roosevelt said, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" Words I try to live by.
Be upfront if you need any type of assistance. Check out your schools
/college/university's Office for Students with Disability or the 504 Officer.
There is also a forum here on ALLNURSES that discusses electronic stethoscopes. I believe one web site is www.allheart.com
I use the Littman 4000 'scope. I was also a civilian EMT and I have profound hearing loss. (And I have been an RN for a while, as well)
Good Luck and Best Wishes to you as you continue on to a new chapter in your life!
