Working as a Nurse With a Disability
by Elisabeth Greenbaum Kasson
What are your options if you aspire to be a nurse and are disabled? What would you do if you were already working as a nurse and became disabled? Whether you are living with obvious disabilities such as limb differences or paralysis, or less visible ones such as a chronic illness, sensory impairment or post-traumatic stress disorder, there are few reasons that would prevent you from successfully completing a nursing program, or continuing your career. The field is diverse and there is a place for nearly everyone.
