    job offer--can I ask this?

    I would suggest getting it in writing.

    I worked like that for years.

    per diem job

    I can understand that they probably would have to pay you time and a half if you worked over forty hours, but I am not aware of any laws that require benefits to be paid. Is there a union there? The union may require benefits for anyone working forty hours.

    HR lied to Unemployment!!

    I used to own a business in Delaware, and have dealt with this many times. If they have your statement in writing that you are resigning, you are wasting your time with an appeal. It's not fair the way you were treated but that's the way it is.

    Accept job offer or hold off for dream unit?

    Take the job in the wound care unit. You can someday transfer to the ICU.

    Not sure if I am making the right decision?

    From what you have said, it seems like you know the answer. If you have no plans on working as a nurse, what is the point in getting your license back?

    Home Health vs. Rehab to reach ultimate goal

    Rehab would be a better experience for you. Also, home health would not be a great place for a new nurse. I did it for a while; you are really on your own making some major decisions, such as whether or not someone needs to go to the ED, etc.

    Advice needed on first RN job

    I agree. In this job market you should do what you have to do. And you are correct that the hospital position would be much better for you.

    Any RN's willing to help out??

    I empathize with your situation, but how could you possibly expect someone who does not know you to write a letter of recommendation? What would you tell the school when they ask what your relationship is with the writer of the letter?
