Please Help me Figure Things Out!

  1. 0 Hi! I graduated with BS degree 4 years back, but I couldn't go back to floor nursing right away because of some family issues. I had to stay home to take care of my two little kids at the time. I also went through few other stresses in life, and struggled to get RN license. two years back, I finally got my license. My kids were a little more grown too. I volunteered in an ICU unit for about 6 months abroad. I also did ACLS and BLS... but at this point, nothing works. I don't even get an interview and all the time the only one answer I get is "no". The recruiters most of the time tell me I will always be considered a new grad yet not a recent one, so my chances are down to zero! I don't know what to do.

    My husband might be getting a job in Kansas city, MO. I heard new grads would be accepted in hospitals in MO or KS, but everywhere I applied, I am turned down. Does anyone know if the hospitals there still hire new grads? If yes, what is the chance for a stale new grad like me?

    Finances have become a big issue in our lives. My kids are in school and demand is growing every day. I feel frustrated and lost. I don't know what to do.... can anyone suggest me any way out. I will really appreciate.

    You could try to take a refresher course. Or you could apply to LTC - they are more apt to hire a "new" grad right now. Hope that helps.

    Thank you. I applied to a few LTC before, but never heard back from them. I will certainly try again. I need to find RN refresher course in my area, I will look for them.
