Say a prayer for me

  1. 1

    So, my case manager told me December is the magical month to be able to look for work. I am looking on the other side of the line for a job, so two prayers needed...

    1) That I am approved by my case manager and both BONs
    2) That I can find a job--my dream job would be to get employment at the health dept as public health nurse. If that cannot happen, I will take med-surg or mental health.

    I have to move, no choice. The other state didn't approve and it's their policy not to grant any license, compact privilege, or special authorization to any nurse in a monitoring program. Don't understand it, but it is what it is. I feel like I can't catch a break.

    I am in VA, plan to stay in VA (I have lived here a long time), and wanted to work in TN. I informed my case manager with HPMP and she was so nice. She told me that she would work on it and see what she can find out or do.

    Thanks. The issue is that most of our health care facilities are in TN. I just happen to live on the VA side. Do you live on the border/stateline in WV? That's my big issue.

    Truth be told, I used to wish I could move (I was slightly younger) and now, here's that very thing that somewhat forces me to and now, I don't want to. It takes money and also, I am a new nurse. So, if I moved, it's financially supporting myself, it's having to go through that first year in a new place without support, it's culture shock if I move to a larger area...yes, we get culture shock too, not just you all moving from big cities to smaller areas. I think if I had to move, I would need to have a roommate to help off-set costs. If I did have a roommate, I would want to a new nurse to go through that first year shock together, even better if they were new to the area, as well. The situation is just so overwhelming emotionally too...
