Communicable diseases and pregnancy

I am a nursing student who is a about a month or so pregnant. I was wondering what kind of patients I should avoid, or not work with. Thank you.


Dear Sarah,

If you are up to date with your immunizations, you should be able to work with anyone. Of course, you should always use appropriate precautions, just as you would if you were not pregnant.

If you have never had chickenpox, and have not been immunized, you should avoid people with chickenpox.
