|HIV POSITIVE NURSE PRACTITIONER
May 12, 2015
HI, I JUST RECENTLY DIAGNOSED AS HIV POSITIVE DURING ON MY PRE EMPLOYEMENT MEDICAL EXAM. I AM A FILIPINO NURSE. MY DREAM IS TO GO ABROAD AFTER 2 YEARS OF WORKING IN MY COUNTRY AS A NURSE, I AM THE BREAD WINNER. CAN I STILL PRACTICE MY PROFESSION AS A NURSE ABROAD? THANKS
Response from Mr. Chambers
Ability to work as a nurse will depend on what country you move to. It should not be a problem in the U.S, or in most of Europe. You will really need to check with AIDS and nursing organizations in the countries you are considering.
Does Medicare cover HIV meds?
