      I was diagnosed in middle school with auditory processing disorder or central auditory processing disorder, CAPD. I somehow forgot all about this once I graduated college in 2006. Now in 2016 I am currently in school taking my prerequisites to apply for nursing school. I am doing fine on chapter quizzes and excellent in my labs. My problems is working on finishing mid-terms and finals. With 130 questions and comprehensive material I seem to dissolve any long term memory stored from the semester. Curious if anyone is willing to share information on working as a nurse with a learning disability– or if CAPD really is a disability at all. I guess from the information I have read a person needs to ultimately adapt to their environment or succumb to natural selection. Thoughts? Suggestions? What have you seen in the professional world for people to stay ahead or adapt with this disorder? Thanks for any feed back.
