I'm been away from direct patient care for the last 8.5 years. I have been in utilization management for specialty pharmaceuticals most recently. I am now interested in going back to direct patient care, but am having ZERO luck so far. I was even told recently that a new grad knows more than I do after being out of the hospital so long
I have been out of clinical for 7 years and am experiencing the same thing. I have applied to many hospitals, for many positions. I have applied FT, PT, registry but no calls. I believe this is the reason. I think we just need a little refresher and it would all come back to us but sad no one is giving us the chance.
