- 0Jan 13 by JTwinWow. I've been out of the field for 2 years now, just got laid off from a job training EHR software. I worked as an RN for 2.5 years before that - had a back injury 6 months into the job and pushed through the pain for the next 2 years until it was non-stop excruciating. I'm glad I found this thread before starting to send out applications.
(I hope this isn't too off-topic, but what got me thinking about going back to nursing instead of finding another training job was a Vipassana meditation course I just completed. Through this technique, I was able to observe extreme pain objectively without reacting - and if the back problem persists and I can use the technique to get through it then there's no reason not to go back! )
Has anyone taken an RN refresher course? I know it's not required with an active license and just 2 years out of the field, but without recent work experience, recent course experience would be the next best thing, right?
