So I am a recovering nurse in Illinois. My license was suspended for narcotic diversion and is now on probation for 2 years. I have been interviewing like crazy and have yet to find a job after 3 months. I am interested in doing an IT related field and thought of nursing informatics.  Have any of you been in a similar situation? Is this something I should risk investing time and money on pursuing a master's in? Thanks!

Not what you asked, but we used to hire a lot of recovering nurses in dialysis. No narcs there at all, so recovery was a non issue. Problem is not everyone likes working in dialysis. They say you know pretty quick if you love it or hate it. Its a good place for people who are very type A, very organized, like routine.

Thank you for the recommendation. I've applied to all the dialysis companies near me and no call back.
