I want advice from nurses and student nurses. I want nothing more than to be a nurse. However, it has been brought to my attention that I may want to reconsider because I have back problems and may not be able to lift heavy patients all the time. I really want to work in nicu anyway but I thought as long as I work with new borns or in pediatrics that I will be ok. I also have medical billing and insurance experience so I could also work as a nurse for an insurance company, phone triage or even legal nursing. Babies are my passion though. I have just found the associates program I like and will transfer to get my bachelor's after I get into a hospital. I just wondered if there were any other nurses out there dealing with difficult back problems and what they would tell a student going into nursing with these issues and the best ways to survive it.
