I have been an RN for 10 years. I started out on the Medical/Oncology floor. Transferred to Maternity as a scrub nurse for C-sections. Had fertility issues and had a hard time working with Moms and newborns. I left the hospital to work for a HH agency basically to have an 8-5 M-F position to have more time with my Husband and did infertility treatments which were not successful so I was really depressed at that time. The HH was not my cup of tea management was horrible. I left and took a position at a LTC facility and decided to adopt a baby. I have been at LTC facility for about 5 years now and I'm board feel stagnate and I really want to go back and work at the hospital. I have applied for several positions but my resume is not great haven't even be called for an interview.
I feel like I haven't accomplished anything in the last 10 years in my nursing Career. I think my resume would look better if I were a new grad!!! I feel like my spending half of my career in LTC and HH has really hurt my chances of obtaining a hospital position. Any advice on how to be more appealing to hospital? Please help!
