Hi everyone! Obviously I'm new to the site. Has anyone else been in this predicament? I've been a stay at home mom for the past 8 years to 3 kids ( 8,6, and 7 months) I need to go back for financial reasons (but who doesn't
) within the next 6 months. I had 7 years of M/B and nursery experience prior to quitting but no formal L&D experience. I'm very nervous to get back in-- so much has changed and my skills and knowledge base are out the window in my opinion. Unlike some people out there I don't feel like everything comes flooding back as soon as you set foot in a hospital.
I don't know of any classes to take in my area. Would a really good orientation be just as good?
My other question would be with having 3 small children, I'm not looking to work full-time and get dragged into that whole rat race again. My family remains my priority. But not having recent experience do I need to go back to the hospital and working terrible shifts, w/e, and holidays to get experience again or could I go work in a clinic? Do clinics or offices provide decent orientations? Any advice or info would be great! Thank you.
