..Am I a complete fool....?

  1. 0 I'm a grad from canada, 20 yrs ago. I have not had a stellar career in nursing, due to health issues. I have mainly done admin work in clinics over the years, but recently took the refresher course in nursing. My first job was very hard for me. I have had next to no experience, and have tremendous stressors at home as well. I feel like a fool. Now I'm 45 yrs old and trying to get my license back. Yes, it was removed d/t 'health concerns, my profane-laced comment to a co-worker (happened once), and skills concerns'...but my pride insisted that I pursue getting it
    back. I think this is who I am. I may work for a doctor in primary care and aesthetics. But. Am i just fooling myself?
    I feel sad about this and wonder if I'm just a fool.
    Please any suggestions, any support appreciated!

    No you are not a fool.Everyone has challenges to overcome. As long as you feel you have your issues under control there is no reason to feel foolish for trying to re-enter nursing.Best of luck and let us know how you get on.

    I don't think it is foolish to want a second chance, I think it is human nature. However, if it were me, I would do a cost benefit analysis before making my final decision. What will it cost to regain the licence? What is a nurses salary in doctors office and aesthetics clinic in your area?
