Stuttering medical assistant or nurse?

  1. Hello all! I am a person who stutters, my stuttering can be really severe at times. I was wondering if any of you were people who stutter and if so how do you, your boss, patients, and co-workers handle it? I'm just scared I won't get hired any where because of it. Also is medical assisting a good career choice? I just don't know if I can pass the multiple science classes with an A to even be considered for the nursing program. Thank you guys!

    I guess I could be naive, but I would certainly hope there's a place in medicine for you. I have a special place in my heart for anyone who faces adversity. Just start off as a doer and ask if it's okay to keep your answers short until you aren't so nervous, refer people to your notes whenever you are especially upset. I have seen people transform once they feel at home in their positions. It wouldn't bother me one bit to work with someone who stutters and I would go the extra mile to go with what worked for them while they got their 'sea legs.'
