    I just saw this the other day, I hope it helps...

    "Your value does not decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth."

    This totally put things into perspective for me as I'm coming off orientation at a new job and the anxiety comes often! Good luck. If its too toxic to take, hit the road. You have some great experience under your belt now, you'll find something!

    I'm in this position now. 3 years out of work and wondering if I'll ever work as a nurse again. I just started classes yesterday to obtain my BSN. I hope and pray that will open doors. I'm emotionally drained as well, and the fear is there about starting over again. Not a single call from hundreds of applications in the last 3 years. Heartbreaking.
    Same here. Not one call with hundreds of apps sent out since about fall of 2012. I work on a SNF/rehab floor of a LTC facility but Im miserable there because I have wanted to be a L& D nurse since I was a teenager (im 37). I have my BSN and 2.5 years of experience and I get ZERO calls...not one interview other than the one for my current job. Everyone I went to school with is in acute care. Its nauseating. I have done everything you can think of to find a job in a hospital. I'm so discouraged, it's disgusting. Something has got to give. This post made me feel better, I just can't take much more of this. I do enjoy my life with my husband and children but this feeling of inadequacy is always there. And it's a slap in the face when other nurses are taking about their jobs. I can't bring myself to feel happy for them. All I can do is wait with fingers crossed... Which ive been doing for three years!!
