Woman Who is Quad-Amputee Working Toward Nursing License
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Helen Lindsey had her arms and legs amputated over 20 years ago due to bacterial meningitis.
She is currently working toward getting her nursing license back, and she will be the first student in the state's nursing re-entry program to have a disability to this extent.
Lindsey will be starting the clinical portion of the program at Salemtowne Retirement Community in Winston-Salem.
Lindsey will be getting the same practice as other students -- assessing patients and administering medication -- at her own pace.
