I am 52, can't work 12 hr shift or nights, just don't have it in me anymore. I am currently studying for my MSN, trying to find a job that is not so physically demanding. I am certified in gerontology, have a certificate in patient advocacy and am also working on being a HIT trainer. I almost don't care what I do as long as it is days and not shift work. What kind of job can I get? I have applied for over 100 jobs. Most of my experience is in home health which I think killed alot of my possibilities. No one seems to understand what a HHC nurse does, therefore do not value it. I think I may be wasting my time on school now, I don't know what direction to go. How do I get in the door of a hospital, no one will call me except for those night shift jobs that new nurses have to take. I hate to say it but I've already put my time in on that kind of work. I am confident and skilled and knowledgeable and a great communicator. I also dress very professionallyand am neat in appearance and manner. So what do I need to do to get a good day job?
