Hi to everyone. I am a 34 year old stay at home mom of 3. I was diagnosed with RA at 24 years of age. Had a long and hard battle with the illness. At present, the RA is under control. I have days when I feel like I can do anything and then I have days when I feel very limited in what I can do.
I have always had a dream of working in the medical field. But due to the RA and having little kids I have not taken any steps in that direction yet. However, lately, I have had a strong desire to become a nurse. And I think, I would be good at it. I have a college degree but not in science. So I will have about 2 years of prereqs to cover.
My question to you all is: Do you think it is worth it to put myself in a long training and become an RN about 5 years from now, when I have RA?
Also, those of you who are nurse; think it is doable physically with controlled RA?
l would very much appreciate your comments....looking for advise very badly.
