Can I be a Nurse?

Nurses General Nursing


First of all, this forum is really imformative and nice. I like it very much.

These days I've been thinking to switch my career to be a nurse. But the question is that I am a Hepatitis B virus carrier, so I want to know, weather I can become a nurse after schooling. Is there any limitations? I just do not have ideas where I could figure it out. I called the admissions of several schools, and they told me that there was no problem with admission. But I want to make sure that WETHER I CAN BE a nurse, you know, the time and money. Does anyone have a similar situation or any information about this. Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

I dont think hep B would be a problem. Most people are Vaccinated against it these days, and needle sticks have other things to worry about. If people with HIV can practice, im sure you can too :)

As a former officer in the US Army, we had/have a slogan that is still used.........if they don't ask, don't tell.

If we start telling our whole life story, I don't think that many of us would be 'healthy' enough to work anywhere.

If your healthy and practice GOOD global precautions, I don't see why you could fulfill your dream.
