I was diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic about 8 years ago. I am drawing SSDI. I currently completed my associates degree. I am trying to get into the RN program at my local community college. My question is will I be able to take NCLEX and become a RN. I have been stable for 4 years. I take my meds every day. I do not have any trouble functioning. Will I have to disclose my medical records to potential employers. I am also a man. I am enrolled in the CNA program as of right know. I just do not want to get my degree and not be able to work. I feel like that society does not accept anyone with a mental illness. I do draw 1954 from Social Security: however, I want to have a job that I will enjoy. I always wanted to be in the health care field. Are any of you have or will face the same issues as me?
