I have been thinking about trying agency nursing, but I only have experience in behavioral health. I have 16 mos. exp. in drug rehab and 4 yrs. in psych hospital. Are there positions for agency nursing in behavioral health for LPNs? I have chronic auto-immune illness and have not worked in 4 yrs. However, I am stabilized on meds and ready to return to nursing. I am not having much success in finding a job. For one, I basically have experience only in behavioral health field. And, I do not want to work FT. I only want to work about two days a week. My dr. does not want me working FT and told me to start out slow. In fact, she suggested agency nursing.
So, what are my chances of finding an LPN agency position in psych field?
