Hi everyone, I have only been out for a little over two years and have worked med-surg as a staff nurse for about two years, then one assignment as a "travel nurse" on a med-surg unit where I made twice the money (which is crazy but that is another topic), so it will be frustrating going back and starting all over and making 1/2 that again or do I?
Anyway my questions are, I want to go back part-time or prn or home health but was wondering since I have been out for two years will I have to go through new nurse orientation (I feel I forgot A LOT) and do staff nursing full time for a while to get back my clinical experience, which I would think I would have to commit to full time for a hospital to do that right?
Or I wonder if I could bypass that by doing a refresher course, and get an agency or prn position? Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I would really appreciate feedback and reading your posts is really helpful? Thanks.
