Hi, everyone! I was wondering if there are any OK Peer nurses on here that would like to communicate and help each other out?

I'm currently going through the guidelines of getting my license reinstated in Oklahoma. Once reinstated I will start PEER.

I've been in OK's PAP since June 2019. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.

I have plenty and many questions! So I guess I’m mostly concerned about once in PAP finding a job. Was it hard for you to find a job?

Took me about 5 months to find a job. Originally landed a job at Cedar Ridge pretty quickly but ultimately wasn’t hired because of some very old criminal charges (because their process goes through DHS because of work with children). I work at OU Medical Center now. I believe Integris also hires Peer nurses. There are a lot more jobs out there than you might think. Lots of Peer nurses working in dialysis too.
