I am a non traditional student, returning to get my nursing degree. My questions is would I be allowed to take the nursing program if I am a Hep B carrier. I found I am a carrier (no symptoms) since the birth of my daughter 22 yrs. ago. I am healthy and is hardly sick even with a flu. I work in healthcare field as med aide, and had no issues with it. But now, I question whether I can get into the nursing program knowing I am a carrier. Also, would I be discriminated upon when it's time to find employment? I don't want to spend the time and the money to get into the program if I'm unable to get employment in this field. Any help out there is very much appreciated.
