Will my disability stop me?

  1. Hello all ,

    I am looking to go back to school to pursue a nursing career and I have a physical disability. Will this hold me back from being successful in the nursing world? Should I reconsider my dream of nursing?
    Any comments and advice will be helpful.
    Thank you
