  • Your fiance can ask for accommodations for his learning disability at the college. Each college has a student disability support office. Depending on what his disability is they can provide him with tutors, books on audio, note takers and other services. He should also go to the state vocational rehabilitation office and apply for services. They can assist him with figuring out if being an LPN would be a good career choice for him and what type of assistance he will need in school. They might even be able to help him pay for tuition, books and supplies.

  • Nurses need to memorize a lot of information. Contact a community college and see if they offer career aptitude tests.
