Epilepsy

  1. Hi, I'm taking the prereqs to get into nursing school right now. I was diagnosed with epilepsy about a year ago, and I was wondering if anyone knew how this could affect working as a nurse or if anyone had any experience with this.

    I've seen forums about that in other websites, people wondering if they should bring up epilepsy during the hiring process, or much later.

    I have adult onset seizures. I've had two. Both at work. I'm on Tegretol now. No repercussions at all from my employer.
