Cant find a job so I am going to let license expire

  1. 0
    I am unable to find a job. I was told by a recruiter at the hospital I worked at as a tech, that it was decided I was to work at a nursing home. I dont know who decided this and if it is even legal. I am almost positive that my old manager whom said to me that she does not like male nurses has done this. I once told her I had no desire to work at a nursing home and this is her evil way of getting back at men. I am looking into suing ba . Until then I will let my license expire so that I can work in a hospital.

    I personally think you are wrong to let your license expire.

    I don't understand what you mean by "I will let my license expire so that I can work in a hospital," but I encourage you not to do this. It can be much harder (and more expensive) to get a license back if you've let it lapse than just to keep the license active.

    Well, by gosh, you show her. Let the license that you worked so hard for expire and you keep working as a tech or a waiter or whatever else it is you're planning on doing.

    That sure beats applying to any of the other numerous hospitals in this region or other areas and getting a job as NURSE which is what you worked so hard to do.

    That's the way to work around her evil ways. You go!!

    So a job opportunity appears, (after all it has to appear because you aren't looking anymore), and it goes to someone else because you don't have time to reactivate your license. You're using faulty logic to arrive at this poor decision. Oh, and BTW, there is nothing to stop your Board from making it impossible for someone to reactivate a lapsed license in your state. They can make any changes they wish to the process at any time. Keep that in mind. You need to realize that a secondary reason to obtain and maintain a nursing license is to be ABLE to obtain employment when one's life circumstances change. You are shortchanging yourself of this opportunity if you allow that license to lapse.

    What you only have one hospital? One hiring manager for the one unit? I don't get it! Why would you let one stupid womans opinion of where you should work make you let your license lapse. Hello. What a rediculous idea.....if you would do that because of one bad experience or opinion and not because you have had a chance to experience being a nurse and actually hate it...then maybe you don't really want to be a nurse or care about being one to bother. Maybe she right.........this is the impression you are giving by reacting this way....so if not true then you seriously need to rethink this. It shows you as being impulsive, irrational and having poor insight and judgement.......if you want to be a nurse....then be one!!!!

    It is very disappointing to experience unemployment. Only employed for more than 3 months once that was not by choice. This economy and this job market for new nurses leaves ones options few. I will keep my rn license and:typing:typing:typing will continue to search for employment.
