RN wanting to go back into nursing

  1. Hi everyone, I am a somewhat new (graduated 2001) nurse with a specialty in Level III Labor & Delivery. I have been out of the hospital on disability for my liver for the past 2 years and I worry that I will not be hirable. I also wonder if I should take a refresher course.

    Welcome.

    It's only been two years. Many nurses take that kind of time out to raise a family. I think you're hirable and don't need a refresher course. I would find a job with a supportive preceptorship/orientation and you should do fine.

    Glad you're doing better.

    Glad that you've joined us.

    I agree with Tweety on this one. I work in L&D and we recently hired a nurse that had been out for 7 yrs. She is doing awesome.

    Go for it!!!
