Out of Nursing for a while, wanting to re-enter

  1. Hey all,

    I have been out of the nursing profession for about 5 years (since I had my first child). I now want to re enter, but do not now what to do. I would prefer to work at a doctor's office. I feel insecure. Can someone give any advice?

    I was out of nursing for 15 years. Got on a great floor with nurses who were glad to have a new member, were excellent and patient with me when mentoring and it's working out great.

    If you were good at it 5 years ago, you'll be good at it again.

    If you didn't keep your license current, you may be required to take a refresher course by your State Board.

    Hi 1Tulip,

    Thanks for replying. I did keep my license current, and I am working on a current resume as well. I just feel very insecure about this. I hope I can get a job at a Dr's office.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement,
