    Regrouping after stressful life events is more daunting today due the tight job market, especially in southeast PA region. You may do best by looking outside the hospital setting.

    Philadelphia Business Journal job link : Philadelphia Jobs - Philadelphia Business Journal usually has many nursing positions I don't see elsewhere. Some persons do well with sending unsolicited applications "for future needs" to employers that don't have advertising budget or online presence like urgent care centers, physicians office, office of aging programs, mental health programs.

    Best wishes moving forward.
