Thanks for the feedback. I looked around at some of the posts
and like you said generally it is hard to be accepted for a position
right now, too many applicants I guess. I feel bad for all
the new grads being told there is a nursing shortage and
then not being able to find work. I wasn't exactly sure of your
tone bc this is the internet and sometimes its hard to tell
what people are implying.
It seems like it would be easier for someone like me, approaching
4 years exp and CCRN critical care and trauma certification.
If it's as hard I have been reading that really is a measure
of how the economy has slowed, new grads looking for work.
I do think I have some other qualifications that make me
an attractive candidate for the military. I will still talk to the
recruiter and start the long process. The truth is I've been
thinking about this for about three years and I just can't let
it go. I want to join. The fact that my manager was negative
just made me want it more.
