I graudated in May of 2011 with my ADN. I'm 4 classes away from my BSN. I had been working on a med/surg floor at the hospital associated with my nursing school from Jan 2011 (6 month precepting program before graduation) until this past fall. I had to have emergency surgery and they wouldn't hold my job. I was only part so I didn't qualify for FMLA or anything else that would have required them to hold my position.
I'm now ready to go back, I've actually been ready since November, but I can't find anything! I'm not truly a new grad anymore but I don't really have enough experience for any of the positions I'm finding. I've gotten a call back from a local home care agency for a case management position (bayada) but after talking to me and realizing I was no longer at the hospital they said my experience wasn't sufficient. I'm looking for per diem, so it's not like I'm passing over jobs due to lack of hours.
I'm south of Boston, if anyone knows of anything or has any tips I'd love to hear them!
