Will DSA affect me after i graduate?

if occy health has passed you fit to train and your actively treating your conditions then you will pass the fit to practice requirement of the nmc. that your getting help from DSA will have no impact on your future. obviously your going to have a lot more contact with the trusts occy health than normal but that actually will be a good thing. thats quite a list of issues your fighting. good luck on you future

If I am on medication and I am stable around the time of me applying for a job as nurse, do you think they will pass me as fit to practise?

yes. but they may want to monitor your health a little more than normal. they are there to help you try not to worry.

I think you know the answer to this by saying you're stable. They cannot discriminate against you.

I’m asking because I was interested in applying to be a Metropolitan police Constable and one of their occupation health officers told me that even if I’m stable and I’m not on medication they wouldn’t consider me because of my depression diagnosis and past attempts.
If I knew the answer u wouldn’t be asking. I never said I was stable at the moment , I said if.

Bit confused here considering earlier on you’ve been asking everyone about mental health nursing roles? Not the police force? And this post is in the nursing forum.

I’m not sure if you can read no offence I said I WAS interested. As in was previously interested in the police but now interested in doing nursing. Just want to know if things will be the same or if it’s different for nursing. I think I’m aware it’s the nursing form hence why I asked regarding NURSING.

Seems quite strange considering you have an offer from LSBU and Middlesex for MH nursing and you're now discussing police constable? I think it's worth having a good think of what career you're wanting to go down before you start an intense three year nursing course. But hey what do I know apparently I'm the one who cannot read.....

To your original question, having DSA will not affect you, DSA is there to support you with your learning and achievements. Occupational health are also there to support you and provide you with reasonable adjustments to prevent discrimination against you.

I want to apply for DSA, Ive been diagnosed with Depression,Anxiety,PTSD and BPD.
But Im scared it will be looked into when I get into employment as a nurse after graduation, will they refuse me a job if they knew i had received DSA for mental health conditions before?

Where would you think they will see this information?

This seems like a stable response

U just joined today on the student room, you’re most likely someone who made a fake account because you didn’t want to say this hateful comment from your Main. Haha that’s so sad, I actually pity you.

You have to join sometime "ZL04" which is definitely identifiable isn't it? not anonymous at all? You joined six months ago, I joined today following searching for DSA as you cannot see past 2 comments without doing so. But yes, this certainly feels like a contradiction to the comment I made.

Such a hypocrite, so you get to determine I’m unstable but I say cant anything about you? Get a life.
If you aren’t here to help u don’t have to say anything. Go get some friends you low life, coming into TSR to spread hate. Are you really that bored ?
God bless you 💗💗💗
Sweetie I honestly feel so bad for you, also let me let you in on a little secret , BUMLICKING people on the internet doesn’t get you brownie point BAHAHAH😘

Oh give it a rest.

Oh get off my post 😍😘😘

Your post you say? I think you'd find TSR in fact owns your post under the terms and conditions of when you made an account.

Okay lmaoooo you guys need to learn grammar and how to read adequately, it’s simple really. Someone’s upset awhh poor thingggg.
I wish you get well soon sweetie, you need all the help you can get.

irony notwithstanding, or is it different?

This is not how the world works, you're going to be in for heinous shocks working in the medical field if this is how you think you can manage spaces that you chose to engage with. Echo chambers are disastrously bad for humanity (and mental health), you're not the land lady "get owt my pub".
"if you dont like it scroll on"
"if you dont like it block me"

Ill bet these have been used in the last 24 hours. Let me have everything I want completely unchallenged or Ill use shaming tactics.

Yep, he medical field is an interesting choice.

You think you’re smart, but I’m the OP and I posted this , regardless tip for next time, if you can’t take heat little girl, don’t start a fire 😘

You call this a fire? More like a little fizzle of smoke from someone that doesn't like an answer.

Next time, if you do not want peoples advice then don't ask. Plenty of people have offered you advice regarding your multiple repeated questions and you've chosen to ignore them.

DSA will not affect you but your attitude and the way you treat people may affect you in the workplace, especially in a field like nursing where teamwork is crucial.
DSA will not impact you whatsoever, so do not let that deter you from pursuing your dreams. Your DSA application is made directly to Student Finance England and with your consent shared with your university to ensure the supportive measures are implemented to help you throughout the duration of your course.

Each student will be assessed independently by Occupational Health after enrolment to determine if they are fit to practice and have the appropriate support in place to minimise any adverse effects on the students health and on the setting they are allocated their placement within. Occupational Health is mostly about supporting you, so I would try not to worry and be as open and honest as you can to ensure the right support is provided to you.

If it’s any reassurance to you, this is my second degree I am also studying Mental Health Nursing in September at London South Bank University and I previously had a successful legal career with a Masters in Law. I have a diagnosis of ADHD and I have disclosed this in advance to the university and they have been nothing but supportive.

I hope that helps and I wish you all the best!

is there any need for this squabble. being a police officer would be more difficult. you may want to check with the police.

The OP has been banned.

No, that was precisely the point. Whats now missing mostly due to the ban is the sheer vitriol and abuse thrown out which made it much more then a squabble unfortunately
