A gal I know, when she first started back to work, got a job where there were some nurses she knew, in a nursing home. She would give them her narc key and they would pass her narcs while she took over some of their charting or some other similar type job.
In our area they are always looking for experienced counselors, and I would think an experienced and empathic nurse would have a leg up on that type of job. Another place they are always looking for people around here is the organ donation center.
I would think that the first year or so of employment would be the acid test. Maybe you could work as a CNA or something to get your foot in the door and then when they have worked up a bit of faith in your job performance go for the gold.
I'm a total gimp and work in an electric wheelchair, with a short life expectancy ahead of me, and yet I didn't have any trouble getting several job offers. I was flat honest about what they could expect; it's just easier for me that way. I recommend perfect honesty, but I'm famous for naive optimism and realize this is an imperfect world to be honest in
