I am NY State RN. Finding a job was a nightmare for me after I received my license. I took up a job in a specialty that I didn't plan to work into but, since it was my only option I embraced it. I have been working as a Psych Nurse since the past 1.5 years now.
After gaining a year's experience I have been applying in hospitals for a med-surge, ED, Medical unit positions. No Luck.
Is it really that hard to switch gears? Has anyone gone through the same? At this point I am so desperate I am ready to take any position that's not Psych. I hate this feeling of being pigeon holed.
Please share your thoughts. I need some encouragement/ help.
