I think, as long as you do all you can to get and stay healthy, that you can do this if it’s what you truly want. Nursing school is stressful, but some feel it’s much worse than others do. I was an older student, recently divorced and raising a 9 year old in a place where I had no family - just occasional help with childcare from neighbors, and while it was far from easy, I didn’t think it was too awful.
I went to school with several students that suffered from different mental illnesses. One, in particular, was the 4.0 student who achieved honor society status with us. She had a mental illness, yes, but she worked her rear end off and has a job secured in one of our largest medical centers ED. There was also a fellow student that was dx’d with a mental illness during our 2nd semester. She started on meds, did just fine and graduated on time with us. She’s also working now. I’ve had severe ADD since I was a child and was told by family that I’d never make it through nursing school. Well, I did make it and graduated with a 3.6, honor society and an award for clinical excellence. I have an incredible job as an RN that I love.
Do what you need to do to get your ducks in a row. Gather your support system. If you can manage your symptoms and you’re determined enough, I believe you can do this.
