    Can diabetics have less chance of getting a job as a nusrse if they mention they have diabetes?

    To be a nurse you have to be fit to practice. But really there is no reason diabetes (if controlled) should affect your ability to work. Obviously as a nurse you will have to be more careful than most as you are very active and it can be hard to find time for breaks - but you should be easily accommodated by your employer. There is, however, no reason to mention it at interview unless explicitly asked. If you have an offer then you can mention you have diabetes and will need some accommodations.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
