Longest Break From Nursing??
- 0Jun 21, '13 by favoritemumsyI left nursing 10 years ago after a 14 year run in the OR. Wondering what is the longest break anyone has had and how did they get back in and did they go back to the same specialty?
- 0Jun 24, '13 by sds1arm2I'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
- 0Jun 25, '13 by waiverrnI 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.
