Just tested Postive and less than 9 months left on school to become Nurse Practioner
      04/24/13 04:03 PM

I just found out yesterday that i am positive for hiv. I have never been sick and also have used condoms with previous partners. I am lost for a answer, but honestly cant dwell on why but to move forward. I donated blood and found out that way. I dont know how long I have been infected or when.
But the problem that is keeping me awake is im currently a BSN at a local small town hospital where the stigma is very very bad. I have been in school for the last year continuing my education to becoma a Nurse Practitioner I have 9 months of school. I am scared to death on what I should do. I have called in sick the last two days and worried ill be booted out of my job.
Should I just quit my school and try to find another career? or can I continue on school and practice as a NP when im done. Help me please some one.. I know my outlook is good and im positive thoughts on my health. but my income and insurance and i love my job.
