Hello. I have a question for you fellow RNs.
For those of you who have longterm disability provided by your employer, and unfortunately found yourself on it like myself, were you able to return to school while on it? I have "rehabilitation" as part of my LTD, and do you have to wait until the "own occupation" phase is over to go back to school or can you go back right away? I trully don't want to be on disability forever, but by no way shape or form can I return to my former job right now, hence a more sedentary job would be best. I was thinking about going back for my NP or masters to go I to management later on.
Would love to know people's experience a with this. Or if LTD actually worked with you to get you back to work.
