I am a nurse with bipolar disease I have been a stay at home mom for several years, and would now like to return to work. What are the odds that someone will hire me? I would like part time evening job, and to work every other weekend. I have a real low self esteem because I have been out of the business for so long, but I know I could be a good nurse if only given a chance.
Thanks for your input,
As people have said before your medical history is no-one's business but yours and your management team. If you decide to divulge this info at a later date, be prepared for mixed reactions, no one thinks the same after all.
I wish you only the best! You sound like a very caring capable person so I'm certain you'll find the right place for you. As others have said a refresher course is always great to boost your confidence and you can always request a little extra orientation or shadowing time in the beginning due to being out of the hospital system for such a long period of time (It'd be weirder if you didn't really).
You take care ok and I wish you only the best in following your career wishes.
