I have been out of the forum for a while. But I got your message and I can't respond or inbox until I become more active. I hope this works. I am still researching OT, nursing, Speech Pathologist, etc. due to my back problems.... I took a 5 wk course on General Chem in the summer but had to withdraw. I have to start on the pre-req's again and maybe do Chem last! haha! I really don't like having doubts about nursing - I want to go for it IF I know I can handle acute care physically as an entry level nurse - I know many nurses with back issues have done it. People warn me how physically demanding nursing is and it's true.... However, teaching younger children is demanding too.
