[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Hi everyone..I could use some advice. I moved here from Arkansas over a year ago and am about to undergo the process of license by endorsement(for LVN) in the state of Texas.
I have approximately 2 years experience in med-surg, 1 year of which was on a telemetry floor in a large hospital in Arkansas. The other year was in long-term care. My IV and blood-drawing skills are horrible at best, considering the fact that I haven't worked as a nurse in a year due to issues with the Arkansas State Board of Nursing. Those issues have since been resolved, but I do not want to put myself in the same situation again. If I get my license, I am curious what my options would be job-wise. I don't know if I'd want to work in a hospital again unless I could work in surgery.
If anyone has been in a similar situation and could offer advice, I would be most appreciative.
