I got a little fed up with the politics after 4 great years as an L.P.N. Forgive me for being a white male who did it very well. No, I am playing the gender card (or race) card here, but it was difficult being the only male person on the floor and having every physician, resident and intern coming to me for questions and answers. It wasn't because I am all that knowledgeable, it just natural for men to feel more at ease asking another man a question. Of course, it caused a rub with my coworkers.
I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and I was a single parent rearing two boys during that time period. You think that fact alone would have bought me a little more grace with single moms or mothers in general. Please ladies, I am on your side! :icon_hug:
When I took the hospital pharm exam I was the only one to obtain a perfect score. In fact, I was the only L.P.N. amongst 6 R.N.'s who took the same exam. Like I said, I can do the nursing part well.
Well, I am little older, and hopefully wiser now, so I am ready to start nursing again.
I am asking for your advice on how to re-enter the profession after an 11 year absence. All of your assistance will be deeply appreciated.
If I can be of asistance to you, please contact me. I have some experience in the automotive industry and the financial world as well.

I live in Ohio. From everything that I read on Board of Nursing site it appears that I will only have to complete the standard C.E.U. requirement to renew my license. I certainly hope so! If any nurse in Ohio knows for sure, please drop me an email.
If anyone around the Dayton area is aware of a hospital or L.T.C. facility that offers a program to assist nurses with re-entry, please send me that info.
Thanks to all who have replied to me! :Santa5:
