I had actually interviewed for this same position about 5 months ago, went through the background check and got the offer and had to decline it because of the fact that I had to drive to meetings throughout the county for the job and at the time, my ex didn't have a vehicle so we were using the same car. Now that that's over, I reached out to them asking if they still might have any positions available for me and they called me back for another interview. If I get the job, which I have a strong feeling I will, I'm planning on initiating the license surrender process. This position is more in the social work realm which is something I've always been interested in.The pay is definitely not up to par with RN pay, I'll be making close to 10 bucks an hour less than what I'm making now, but the job is closer to home and since it's a county position the benefits are amazing. Not to mention, whatever free money I do have is quickly eaten up by drug testing fees, nurse support group fees, BON fines and the gas I use up driving to testing sites and AA meetings. Not to mention having my free time back to pursue my own interests instead of attending multiple meetings a month is worth the pay cut alone. In the meantime I'm still working at my SNF as a ward clerk, will have to do something very nice for everyone there when I do leave as they have been so supportive during this whole ordeal. With your education, I'm sure there's a lot you can do, you just gotta think outside the box.
