Hi, all. I have self-diagnosed ADD with anxiety but I want to become a CRNA. I am able to handle my attention deficit well enough to be a good student, but it takes me a lot more study time (lots of reading the same sentence/paragraph over and over). Working in the ICU exhausts me mentally; I believe it's because I have two different patients (sometimes more) and the multiple interruptions throughout the shift. I'm not complaining at all; I do it to the best of my ability. I just think it would be so much less exhausting to be able to focus better.

I would like to see a doctor to be evaluated for this and possibly take medication for it. Do any of you know if diagnosis and/or medications for ADD and/or anxiety would prevent me from being accepted into a CRNA program?

Thanks in advance!
