I have been a nurse for over 2 years now. I have done school nursing and home health care for two very sick kids. I am now looking outside of nursing for a job. I like working with kids but that is not my LOVE. So as I have been looking for a new area of nursing I hit the same road block every time. I apply for a job. They call me and we sit down for am interview. At that point I hear "oh you have all of the skills we are looking for, but you have only worked home health care and schools. So we are sorry but you are not the right person for this job. But you have all the right skills just wish you had not worked home health care." I hear that every time. I need more hours then I have now at my job. I have applied for jobs at LTC, Doctors offices, staffing places. If I cannot find a new job but the end of the year I will be forced to look outside of nursing. When that happens I will never go back to nursing. I love nursing. I feel that its a calling. I feel that calling down to the core of my soul. But once more other nurses will not stop killing the younger nurses that want to move to a new area of nursing.
