Hello, can anyone tell me if there is life after a do not rehire? I have had many interviews, but no call backs. I have worked in LTC for as long as I can remember as a CENA. While working as CENA I went back to School to become a MA. I work as a MA for about 4 years and went back to being a CENA. I worked for a company That hired me when I was very young and rehired me when I wanted to come back after working as a MA. this company was very supportive of me as I went on to finish my nursing career, I became and LPN. :up: and wanted to move within the company, so my transfer was granted. I was very surprise to see that "the grass is not aways greener on the other side." Being a Nurse took on a whole new level, as I am the first to pursue a higher education in my family so there is no advice, although I have broken a curse! I have become a Nurse and have not worked since 2010. I have held only three position as a LPN, The first job I quit, I felt overwhelm at that time, the next two job I was fired just before my 90 day grace period. I have no ideal what to do, when I go to an interview, they look up my name and then the weired look on there face says something and it's not good! I called the job that always hires me back and they say they would but its what the Facility ( there other company) said that make me not eligible. (HUM), all this time and money invested wow, smh, I have worked on the Vent and Trache Unit, in Rehab Therapy, LTC, I can do Phlebotomy, cared for and monitor over 54 patients in one shift, med count is always correct, always doing rounds in order to prevent falls, I come early and stay late.(which is a given) and many more skills to apply, I try not to leave work for the next shift. My attitude is awesome and if didn't have confidence I have them now.(LOL), Seriously, thinking, I may have to leave Nursing but what could I do? all I know is Healthcare and I miss the Patients! I'm ready to get back to work. I have have learn so much. I am not a saint! but I have respect for others and I love caring for and helping others.I have check my License an it shows no neg issues, any ideals or advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

P.S Sorry this post is so long I needed to vent a little also.

You just have to get yourself out there, tell them all the great experience that you have and how and why you are so passionate about nursing. Be sure that you have good references.

Honestly I personally hate job searching/interviewing, etc. but try contacting your local unemployment office, they can perhaps assist you in these job getting skills and the best ways to explain the holes in your resume and past issues.

Thank you, heathert kc, there is an Open House coming to my area this week and I do plan to attend. I will let this Open House be the start of "getting out there!" I know your right, I did not get this far by taking no for an answer!

Again, thank you, for the motivation! I will keep my progress posted. (kudos!)

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
