Hello! I have been thinking ever since nursing school
that I would like to get into occupational health nursing - not OT like in a hospital, but to be a nurse at a corporation. Recently, I found out that I am allergic to several different kinds of protective gloves, and my boss at the hospital has to order me my own special ones now. If something happens, and I don't have any of mine, I have to use the ones that irritate my hands and I end up with a yucky rash. So lately I have been looking around for some kind of OH (or any other non-glove-requiring) job, but I can't seem to find anything. I had originally planned on staying where I am for longer than this, but it's getting pretty hard with having this stupid rash all the time.
My problem is that I am having a hard time getting anybody to look at my resume, I assume its because I have no OH experience. I even applied to do other kinds of non-bedside nursing, such as case management, documentation specialist, etc. I can't get anybody to respond to me! I have six years of inpt med/surg oncology experience. Any tips??? Also, any ideas for something for me to try besides OH (if I can't get anyone to give me a chance?) Thank you all for reading! Have a great day! :spin:
