Do to some personal issues that occurred immediately upon completion of nursing school I wasn't able to enter the nursing profession until 1 1/2 years after I received my degree and license. I sent out a few resumes and then had a referral for a residential treatment facility dealing with adolescents with mental health and behavioral issues.I was hired per diem and it seemed like a great idea at the time because honestly I just needed to get started somewhere and put the RN after my name to good use and earn some much needed cash.Now, I have been here for a little over 6 months and I cannot even get another area of nursing to look at me .Any advise? I have considered taking a perioperative class , do you think this would help? I am going to get my BSN, should I just go for it and stay here per diem until I finish>? or am I just damning myself more to this work?Thanks for any advise.
