Student with disability, how does it work out?

  1. Hi,

    I have a disability (sort of) related to insomnia secondary to an airway syndrome, similar to sleep apnea but not quite. I have not encountered any problems in clinical, just maybe occasional mistakes like forgetting to take off the tourniquet during an IV insertion or forgetting to clamp the IVPB. Medications and orders, I'm absolutely on top of and don't have any mistakes with them. I'm presently enrolled in a disability program. I was just wondering, how does it work out when you apply for the RN license with a disability? And how does it affect job searching? Should I refrain from mentioning it on license application? Is there extended time on the NCLEX? Do you feel that you are accommodated adequately at the workplace?

    Sorry for the questions. Thanks to anyone who can clarify.
