  1. How can a nurse care for their patient holistically if he/she with his/her own self has a disability? How is he/she also demonstrate to his/her patient a what do we call a healthy person if he/she, a role model of it has a problem?

    Is this for school? We are happy to help. What do you think? Do you think it helps or hinders a nurse in her/his care of patients?

    Yes this is for school.
    I think it depends on the perception of a patient but eventually most of the patient believes that a nurse is healthy and know how to care for themselves before caring for a patient.

    ​Have you done a search on nurses as role models?

    While I am not a nurse, I hope this helps:

    Nurses with disabilities may have had experiences in which they themselves were patients. Having experiences being a patient may help nurses better empathize and put themselves in their patients' position.

    A nurse with a disability can demonstrate that he or she is healthy and able to serve his or her patients by following protocol and delivering patient-centered care with or without the use of any accommodation.

    This.

    I have had the pleasure to continue to work while having a disability; I have also had the pleasure to learn from nurses side by sure in the trenches with disabilities; their knowledge did not detract or diminish from their disability.
