Yes. You are reading that correctly.
. I did quite a bit of volunteering in my children's schools but I doubt cleaning up spilled chocolate milk in the lunchroom with a 32 oz mop ( that's custodian speak) MWF is going to be of any value to a future employers. There was occasional vomit though!
I entered the info into salary.com. Should I go low on the bell curve since I'm basically a newbie? Did they train you in oasis? Thanks for responding and helping me.
I was a stay at home mom for 17 years. I was also the room mother in my kids classes and substituted for their teacher, lead their craft time, chaperoned field trips, brushed the hair of 100 kids on picture day, cooked dinner every night and the meat, veggies, and bread were all ready at the same time and on time.
So from my above list I can say I am organized, patient, willing to jump in and help at a moment's notice. I am dependable and trustworthy. (I'm a used car. LOL)
Make a list for yourself and add all the attributes. Then write a short paragraph that details these attributes. Be kind to yourself and know that the things you did were valuable and required attention to detail. When your interviewer says, "tell me about yourself" have this memorized and then flow from this to your nursing career goals.
Shoot for the median, you might not get it but salary is usually negotiable. They will train you in OASIS.
Most of all remember that you were a SAHM by choice and its okay to say that, to be proud of this part of your life and you were grateful for the opportunity to do just that. Be confident!
