I am seriously lacking on references. I haven't worked since 2002, and I haven't worked as a nurse yet. I haven't been able to track down anyone from my previous jobs to use as references.
I was thinking of emailing 2 of my nursing school instructors, the main 2 that I know are still there. I graduated in 2003, an A student, emailed with them a few times after the baby I was pregnant with at graduation was born. That is about the closet thing I have. Are nursing instructors usually willing to be a reference?
I feel very discouraged right now. Any ideas? If I email the instructors and they say no, should I delete "references upon request" from my resume and pray no one asks? Hire a PI to track down the people I can't find so I can use them as refs?
