Due to a dermatological condition, I was put on a very low dose (0.5mg) immmunosuppressant. My condition is not visible and is well controlled due to this medication.

1) Will this prevent me from getting into a nursing school?

2)Will this prevent me from getting a job later on?

3) Should I even disclose this to either of the above since it's such a low dose?

Honestly- the best person to ask that of is the dermatologist who prescribed it.

I did discuss it w/him and he said it was fine. Obviously he said to make sure to take all precautions as one normally would.

I know the school I want to attend has a health questionnaire (not an actual physical) which asks about any medications you're taking. I thought if they saw I was on this medication they might object. The school said they just use the questionairre for their records only, but I know departments always talk to each other.
