Working in ED again after 5 years

  1. I started my nursing career in the ED and worked there for 4 years before moving to the OR and I have been there for the past 5 years. I continued to pick up ER shifts but they were few and far between. My last shift was October 2014. I will be relocating to a new city by the end of the month and would love to work in an ED again. Any advice on getting back into an ER? Is it difficult to get hired after being gone from the ED for 5 years?
    Any advise is welcomed and much appreciated.

    I think since you still pick up shifts there which means that you've kept current with possible changes it shouldn't be a problem to get rehired full time in ER.

    Yeah since you still pu shifts there sounds like you do work in an er.
