So here's the deal:
I started in a hospital straight out of nursing school
. Left after a VERY short amount of time (like 4 weeks) because I couldn't deal with 12 hour shifts, weekends, etc. I then moved to working into a primary care office, where I've worked since (with normal M-F, 9-5 hours). I recently moved to a new area and have to find a new job, and I'm looking to go back into the hospital. For my future goals, I need the hands on experience of bedside nursing, and I just didn't really learn a ton in a primary care office. I haven't started an IV, managed patients, etc. since practically nursing school (about a year ago). So how do I get into the hospital?
I feel like I don't qualify as a "new grad" and can't apply for those sorts of positions due to my experience...yet I also don't have enough acute care experience to apply to anything else in a hospital! It's almost like I've fallen through the cracks! How can I get back in??
