I think this would be more realated to this forum compared to the general forum I just posted on. Well I graduated June 2004 and just recently passed the Nclex this past July 2006 (Yes two years after I graduated). I happen to fail the NCLEX the first time around and while preparing for my second time around, I came down with a lot of personal/family problems and put the NCLEX off until last month. I haven't worked within the past two years and I was wondering what are my chances in getting a job?
The most recent activity on my resume is dated 2004 (clinicals and nurse interning). Friends have questioned my ability on the clinical aspect of nursing (if I still have my skills) starting IV's, insterting foley's, shots etc. I think I do, but it has been awhile.
Does anyone have any advice that they can give me? Is there courses to "freshen up" your skills? or recommend just applying to hospitals and get reoriented there? I know if I get a interview they would ask would have I been doing the past two years..I question I dread. I thinking on what to say and even lying??? Well as you can tell I'm pretty discouraged
but I really would love to start this awesome profession. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Thank Eric, I browsed some refresher courses and they can cost more than $1,000. If I could, I rather not but if I can't find a job I guess I would have to
. Thanks nicci, good to know someone is similiar to my situation...I have some questions for you, I'll probably contact you privately. Thanks again everyone
