Wanting to go back to nursing field after being dormant for a long time..

  1. Hi! I hoping somebody will enlighten me about current trends on nursing. Ive been wanting to go back but dont know what and where to start at all.. i graduated BSN way back 1997 fr a foreign country with no experience at all. I took NCLEX year 2003 and failed twice and got very depressed after that. My question is now that im here Texas and got a lot of time in my hands im thinking if i can apply for a job and what position to start or do i need first to enroll on a refresher course or any certification to start working. Thank you so much in advance!

    So you've been out of school 20 years and have not passed NCLEX? I don't think a refresher will help you. I think you need to start over- and I say that not to be cruel, but to be realistic. How about enrolling in an LVN program?

    Im afraid that should be the case.. to start all over.
