I had been out of nursing for 5 years due to living abroad and having a baby, but after taking a refresher course for RNs, i was hired on by an agency. They've been good to me and i am just so thankful to be back in the game.
However, i have to start out as a school nurse or a wellness clinic nurse because I only have 11 months experience total, and they require 1 complete year.
They sent me out to meet family #1. They were great. The only problem is, they wanted me 6am and they lived far from me. With my own baby, sometimes nights can be rough, so i asked for a more local case. I went to another family #2. I liked them as well. However, the mom said she had a school nurse already and we both didnt know what i was doing there! Comical, and embarrassing...
So, off to family #3 a few months later. I havent met them yet, but i am panicking because they live in a ..for lack of better adjective..."bad" neighborhood and I'm a bit leary of it. AND this family lives *farther* than family #1!!
I would just be afraid if i turned this case down, the agency would give up on me and be annoyed.
Please if anyone has any experience with agencies, are recruiters pretty understanding, or do they give up on you after a while?
