This is my first post on allnurses.com and hope everyone is well!
I have a dilemma and not sure what to do so figured you guys might be able to help me (as most of you are more experienced)?
Here goes: I used to work at a hospital and quit due to nursing school. Now, I am a new grad RN (sept 2011) with no job and it has been 1-2 months searching for one. I was wondering if it would be smart to ask if I could rejoin the old job because
1) it would be a job! its pharm tech
2) and I would have the chance to internal transfer when there's a chance (I am considered external candidate at the moment)
I figured the worst thing that can happen is that I do get rehired and then somehow immediately get a job as an RN... that would make me look bad, right? My ex boss knows I am an RN searching for a job and he is also my reference. I left the job in very good terms. What would you do??? I am just afraid/stressed for the worst (that I would have to leave early into the rehire, therefore making me look bad and that I "used" them and that would ruin my reference). But on the other hand, I am an unemployed new grad RN.
Thanks for your comments in advance!

What on earth are you waiting for?
Call your old boss, & explain the situation. Be up front re it all - lying doesn't get you anywhere.
I honestly don't see what your dilemma is - you are worrying about nothing really. People come and go in jobs all the time, it's part of life.
If you haven't rung them by the time you stop reading this post, then there's not much point asking for advice.
Get proactive and get busy TODAY.
