I am an RN in FL, I just recieved an IPN contract, 5yrs, with a 1 yr key restriction. Any suggestions on trying to find employment? Where to go, what type of positions to look for?? I have applied everywhere I can think of, hospitals, office, nsg homes, but nothing so far. I do mention upfront that I have a contract, which I thought was better to let them know,(since I have to tell anyways). I need to know if anyone has any suggestions on making the reentry? My issues are not related to any patient issue/neglect or anything of the sort, and there was no diversion. I haven't worked in about 3 yrs and desperately need to get back to work. Nursing is who I am, and what I want to do.
I was told by one hospital to take a refresher course, does that really make me more employable?
My other question is, if I don't find employment in nursing, am I able to get licensed in another healthcare profession?( Such as dental hygenist, xray, ultrasound, something of that sort) I don't want to do this, but if I can't find a nursing job, I may have to seek other venues.
If anyone has any suggestions on what to do, tips, what type of nsg position to look for, any employment opportunities, I would greatly appreciate it.
I am kinda lost on what to do at this point.
