I want to re-enter hospital nursing after being out for 17 years. I had 7 years hospital experience when I left (med-surg, ortho-neuro, neuro rehab). I've done some community type nursing since then, but have been raising a family the past 11 years. I've kept up my RN license and took the refresher course a year ago. So.....I'm thinking maybe a tele unit would be helpful to work awhile, and possibly ICU or PACU in the future. I have no idea how I will look to the recruiters, but I was a good nurse once and am willing to learn what I need to learn to do this. I've been reading some of the posts here about tele units, and they seem, well, scary. Could I do this? What would I really expect of a tele unit? Anything good to say about tele units, too?
