I am a seasoned registered nurse, with 8 years of pediatric experience, and 3 years of NICU experience. I was a good nurse, still am...but my last employer terminated my employment because of a policy violation. I was reported to the board, and my license was suspended for one year, I did some continuing ed over that year as part of my suspension. Then my license was put on probation for one year. All in all, I have not worked as an RN for 5 years because of it. My license has been active for the past 13 months, and I have tried to find a job..and keep getting turned down. I understand that I made a mistake--and I learned from it, served my time without a license and am ready to move on and get back to being a nurse again. It's all I've ever wanted to be. I just need someone to give me the chance to prove myself again, and to let me show them how hard I would work for them. Does anyone have any suggestions?
