hey folks. i need some advice. especially if you're a nursemanager, or work in hr. i'm an rn. i've specialized in areas such as icu/ccu,med/surg, home health, and hospice. i surrendered my rn license in 2005 due todrug dependence. i am a short time away from reinstating my rn license. i needadvice on how best to apply for a position in a hospital. i've been told bysome that hr departments will usually trash resumes from applicants withtarnished licenses. i wish to be as accountable and upfront as possible withemployers, but i fear i will not get a fair chance. i would appreciate anyfeedback that might be offered.
