Apr 26, '11Thanks, FairyPrincess06, I do do all those things. I took an RN Refresher this past January. I am currently taking Spanish for Medical Personnel at the local CC and intend to actually learn and use it. I go to all sorts of seminars, also to Grand Rounds at 2 of the nearby teaching hospitals in topics of interest. I've stopped going to job fairs, they have been a lot of trouble for nothing. I've applied to other positions in healthcare, and the one time I was able to talk to a hiring manager she said they wouldn't hire me because of the RN, she said she was sure I would leave as soon as I found an RN job. Ha! That was a year ago, and I think I would have enjoyed working as a clinical research coordinator. So, I am volunteering for now, and waiting to hear about another volunteer position. I'm hoping to make contacts through this volunteer work. I'm considering private duty but don't have a lot of confidence in my ability to be self-employed; it's something to think about anyway!
