Hello All Maybe some can shed some like or advise on my current situation. I currently have two degrees (Sociology and SLP) and have been working in the education field for the past 7/8 yrs. It has drained me to the core and I have been looking into the medical field for quite some time. I have completed all pre-reqs for any nursing program but have been taken back from applying due to my RA diagnosis. I have many many flare ups and the pain sometimes become unbearable and the many symptoms related to it seem not to get any better. The med cocktails that i have tried did not help much and if they did i was experiencing side effects, one being mild hand tremors that come and go as they please.I fear that with this I will not be able to preform my duties as a nurse to the best of my ability or even worse, put someones life in danger. Is being a nurse with this illness achievable?
