I have been home since delivering my dd in October. I was working med/surg for a little over a year until having dd, and psych for about a year before that. I can afford to stay home for quite some time yet if I wanted to, but have mixed feelings about it.
I do have the itch to go back very part time, but do not want to regret it and quit. It will be difficult getting childcare during orientation only. (I plan on working weekends only when dh is here) So I don't want to go through the trouble of finding childcare for orientation and then quit the job, to have to go through it again a few months later. I planned on returning in January, but now my dh has a business trip out of state in Feb. so that is out. I am now looking at returning in March.
I am wondering... How long is too long to be out of nursing before you have difficulty finding a job? I know I can go back to either of my last places of employment, but do not want to go back to those places for various reasons. How hard is it to get back into the swing of things at work? Please tell all! Thanks in advance!
