    Fired two times and unable to get job now

    I am having a hard time getting another job. I have been a nurse for twenty years and have work in many areas. I have been fired twice - first for charting problems and second one for absences. My last job was in labor and delivery and nursery where my first love in nursing has always been there. I have had problems with absences during the two years that I was employed because of personal sickness, family sickness, and personal problems in marriage. I was counseled several times and written up and was given 90 days each time not to have any absences. I did better during those times but then I would get in trouble again. The final write up was given and nurse manager told me that I would be dismissed if I called in sick again. I called in on Dec 19th 2017 and I was sick with sinus infection. I came back to work after another day off. I was nervous during the morning but I really thought that I still had a job and nurse manager would not fire me but was just trying to scare me when I got write up. I was taken to her office and fired. I had to get all the stuff from my locker and was escorted to door. I was so upset and in shock. I used by retirement money to live on the next year. I was also going to school online getting bachelors and then masters and just used my time for that. I applied to jobs every so often and did not get any offers. I just thought no problem I will get job some other time and not to worry. Here it is January 2019 and I am running out of money. I have been applying like crazy and have gotten many interviews but no job. I am so scared now and just do not know what to do for money. I am having many fights with husband about just getting a job that is not nursing but it will not pay all the credit card bills and other bills. I need advise to help get back on the road to working. Thanks
