Okay, so I still need to finish my pre reqs to send in my Nursing School App. However, I have a problem: Complex Partial Seizures. They are not fully controlled and I get them every now and then. I get them during class sometimes and I am scared that I won't be accepted into the nursing program
because of them. Granted, I do miss material and whatnot, but I get notes from friends and stuff. I always make up my work. My professors understand. I'm not a slow learner, I ca grasp material alright, but I was told by a RN that I will put patients life in danger and I will probably end up killing someone, and that they wouldn't want me working with them. That I am a liability. Mind you, I am an EMT. I work all the time and everything is squared away with that, I am an awesome tech (I think). I am losing confidence I suppose that I should continue with this major. Am I wasting my time?
I have wanted to be a nurse all my life, and now that I am 20 and in college and I have the opportunity to get my BSN eventually, I am told that I should just change my life goal? I still have a lot of time before I finish school, and I think that is enough of time for my brain to figure out that it needs to chill out. (Meaning med management)
Should I just reconsider being a nurse? This is what I want. I can do it, but will discrimination become a factor in this? Even if I get accepted into the Nursing Program, will my instructors there be as understanding as my professors are now?
Thanks, in advance.
