I moved from NC with recent experience as a clinical manager in Home Health (1 yr) and 7 years as a phone nurse consultant for pharmaceutical companies (very customer service driven, AE reporting etc.) I come from about 13 years in Adult ICU but have not been bedside for 8 years now. That seems to be the problem. I love to teach and have been developing education for staff in my roles as I develop my role. I have this highlighted on my resume and my references back that up. The problem is that most companies are not taking a chance on me. I am really considering looking at other career paths because nursing is not responding to my job search. Has anyone else left nursing due to this?? Anything helpful would be great. I am in the North Austin area of Texas.
