Migraines in Nursing School

Nurses Disabilities


I just got accepted into an accelerated BSN program. However, I suffer from chronic migraines. I usually have around 15+ migraine days a month with preventative medication. Once I take my medication, I am usually able to function. I may have one or two non-functioning days a month. I'm wondering if this will interfere with school. Has anyone else attended nursing school while dealing with chronic migraines?

This is something to discuss with your program. But two non-functioning days a month would definately be a problem for potential employers. There are some really good treatments for migraines now. I completely resolved my migrains (Haven't had one for 7 years) feel free to contact me by PM if you want to discuss.
