    I know what your going through. I too was an LPN who was fired. even before i was fired i had 15 years of experience and i still wasnt able to find a full time job. Now that I'm fired and unemployed I cant find one job . Its a tough economy. GOod luck!

    Newington health care center has a bunch of per diem openings, any health bridge management nursing homes in CT due...i think their is some type of impending strike going on, i was offered a position but declined, i dont want to get into that whole picket line business...i currently do pediatric homecare and i love it, but you need your 6 months experience...good luck!!!

    Sadd, I'm sorry I didn't know you couldn't reply! The name of the place I work is Mansfield center for nursing. We have full time and part time openings. Its a rehab and long term care facility. The address is 100 warren circle Storrs CT number is 860-487-2300. We also have an ad on career builder I think? The best thing to do is just come in and fill out an application. Please Please Please come apply get a position and stay for a while. We have been using alot of pool staff lately (although they are all wonderful) its just not the same as having someone that the patients (not to mention the staff) know and trust. I won't lie the facility has been going threw many changes recently but I think in the end it will be a positive thing. The staff are awesome and is a good place to work. Hope to meet you soon
