What area of the country are you located in? I am very sorry to hear this.
I am sooo sorry to hear this, but in this economy... nursing jobs are very tight in many cities. Can you tell us where you are? Are you able to do travel nursing? With your exp... should get a good package if your family life permits that. If not, you can cobra insurance for a crazy amount of $$ or look up for your licensed state... high risk insurance and insert your state. We found coverage for my daughter 19, with a recent head injury for $120 per month,,, which covered more than I had thought.
The insurance search takes a day or two of time, but it's out there if you hit the criteria for your state... this may give you some time in months to cover yourself and have time to look.
Call your state congressman and reach an overacheiving intern to help you as well. google this for contact # it's out there.... it took me a bit.. but not knowing where you are makes it more difficult to help. I called everyone and anyone, as my 19 yr old was too injured to be in college and couldn't be covered by traditional means... the obama plan kicks in OCT. can you hold out until then?
I don't know how else to help, but waiting for your reply.
