Nursing Student with Arthritis worried about health clearance

  1. 0 I'm starting a nursing program in NYC soon, however I was going through the health clearance packet and I noticed it asks for the medication I'm on, which includes methotrexate. I was wondering if there's a chance I could be denied clearance because I'm technically immunocompromised.

    I saw that there's a lot of nurses with RA so I was wondering what their experiences were with health clearances

    I have RA & take 2 meds that leave me immunocompromised. I have not had any problems passing pre-employment physicals because of these meds.

    If you are on a narcotic prescribed for pain, do you think that would be a no go?
