I don't know if you would consider this a disability or not, but it certainly is a learning and behavoir DIFFERENCE especially to nursing students and new grads. I have been a RN for 30 years and have been diagnosed with significant ADHD-Combined type. I only recently started taking medication to help me focus. If there are any nursing students or new grads out there who enjoy(?!) the same learning and behavoir difference, I can certainly offer ideas and tips about how I studied and what I did to organize myself. In my 20 years of clinical nursing, I can tell you that I had the best checked on and analyzed patients of any patients in the hospital. I also had and have to continually work on my communication skills (interupting and saying impulsive things) and my mechanical/computer skills. If you have these issues and problems please write in and we can talk about it.
