I am a new member to this site. I have so many questions to ask. A little about myself. I graduated in '95 with an ADN from Indiana University School of Nursing. I have had jobs in the following areas after getting my license: Long term care, Home health, and school RN. I was not able to hold down any job for more than 4 months due to Failed back. I never knew that I had any problems with my back until 2 years before graduation. I have had 3 back surgeries, one being lumbar spinal fusion. I had the last surgery in '98 and have not been back to work since. Any and all problems have been fixed and have been given the all clear to return to work. I want to get back into the nursing field but fear that no one will want to hire me. Should I enter the field again as a graduate nurse with little or no experience? I need some ideas from anyone that may have an answer or has maybe experienced this before. I worked too hard and endured a lot of pain to get this degree after the age of 40. I need help with writing a resume and cover letter that deal with this problem. Thank you for listening.
