So ive been in an ICU for 6 months now, but my manager called me in one day and gave me the grim news that i was being laid off
. I never knew i was going to be laid off, but here i am.
. This sucks a lot. I do have some money saved up to last me, but its only a temporary fix. Its hard to think that i am considered to be unemployed now. Now im back to applying for jobs.
. I've picked up an on call CCT job with a local ambulance company but unfortunately its paid per call and its not enough as what I was getting working in the ICU. I've continued to apply to other hospitals all over california and it has help a bit with my experience to the point where I am getting calls from nurse recruiters. The only problem now is that I don't qualify for ICU positions since I don't have the 2-3yrs experience and non critical care units wont take me as "I am trained in such a critical/specialized field". I'm hoping something comes up soon but in the mean time what else can I do? Any advice would be helpful.
