Type 1 diabetes nurses and NCLEX
- 0May 15, '08 by frannHi,
I havn't been over here for a while.
I have a new friend she's a type 1 diabetic and they are telling her that she can't bring her meter or treatments for lows into the exam.
I know you can leave anytime for bathroom break-when I took mine back in 91 I had hyperemesis and threw up during each test.
They want her to leave her meter in locker outside. This probably woudn't be a problem but she's has problems with hypoawareness. the nclex people are saying that diabetes isn't a disability-I know that's not true! having a pancreas that doesn't secrete insulin not a disability?
Thanks for any helpLast edit by Silverdragon102 on May 19, '08 : Reason: TOS, pm to member

they tell her that diabetes isn't a disability! and that she has to leave her meter locked ina locker outside. I find it hard enough having diabetes(I just manage my dd's D,sometimes I feel like I have D myself), then they put all this bs on you. really ticks me off the way we treat our own.

If you are like me the stress levels caused my sugars to elevate during the test and when I was finished I needed to take extra insulin. Hope that helps. BOL
