Honestly, I'm hoping that there are some jobs
. My situation is a bit odd, I have an ASN, graduated 27 yrs ago, worked FT for 7 yrs in a variety of settings (college health service, med-surg floor, neuro briefly, OR, Medicare peer review office).
I have not worked in nursing for 20 yrs, and just taken my NCLEX again and passed. So, the job hunt will soon be on for me (my self-employment work is at its height for the next couple of weeks yet).
As you can imagine, trying to find people I used to work with and under has been challenging after 20+ yrs, so I'm concerned about being able to get references from nursing jobs. I've been self-employed for the last 10 yrs, so my work references would be from people who have worked with me, but not that I have been employed by. Any thoughts/suggestions for my situation?
