Quote from Buttercupkitten3Hi there...
I am an inactive RN wanting to return to practice after 5 years of being a stay-at-home mommy. I do have a current license, but I have absolutely no confidence in my skills, knowledge, or ability to get a nursing position. With this in mind, I have an appointment to meet with the dean of a local nursing school later on this week (my alma mater). What is the environment like for inexperienced RN's... pay... likelihood for employment... etc... I want to work for an acute care hospital and I do not have any intentions on working for an agency (I really got burned by one right before I left practice... a topic for an entire thread of its own...)
Thank you for reading my comments, and I will greatly appreciate any input that I receive.
Best wishes for a wonderful weekend, and smile often...

I've submitted several applications along with my resume, and I've felt very brushed off and lost. I've even been treated rudely by a few nurse managers. I realize returning will require hard work and retraining, and I'm prepared for that. I wasn't prepared for such an unwelcomed response by hospitals. I think my experience as an RN is valuable and I have a lot more to offer the nursing field. It makes me sad and frustrated that no one seems to want to give me a chance.
