Dont Lose hope out there, nurses!

  1. 0 I have been on this board for a while, looking for information about how to get back into nursing in an acute care setting.
    I have NICU experience, which ended in 2008. I also currently do homecare for a skilled pediatric patient for the past 10 years.
    I have school nursing experience.
    The outlook for nurses even those of us with experience seems dismal. I have applied to every hospital on Long Island for the past 8 months. I have gotten 2 interviews, and both turned me down because I haven't been in an acute care setting since 2008. I scoured this board, re arranged my resume, and low and behold I got called for an Interview about a month ago. Went through 2 rounds of interviews and 3 exams, and a job offer came today for exactly what I wanted!
    Please don't give up. Keep working no matter what the setting is.
    I hope this helps other nurses.
