Nursing and chronic illness watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I have epilepsy and already work in a hospital, as well as applying for nursing and having a chronic illness and work, for stuff like working nights (which I love!) and occupational health can sometimes be a pain! Anyone else have any experience of chronic illness and nursing or hca? X

    I also have epilepsy and I am applying to study medicine. Having a chronic illness has allowed me to see the processes of diagnosis and treatment from a patient's perspective. If you had various scans, spoken to neurologists, nurses and maybe psychologists like I have, you've seen how different healthcare professionals work together. As much as chronic illness and disability can be a pain, you have an insight into nursing and HCA few others will have. It is worth contacting universities about how they can help you when applying (e.g. grade requirement changes), and whilst doing the degree. Make sure that epilepsy is stressed in your UCAS reference. Good luck with your application!
