to make a very long story short...i graduated in 2009 with my adn. i did absolutely everythingi could to get a hospital job, clinic job or any job for that matter. (i am insouthern ca...jobs here are very bad for new grad nurses). the only thing i have been able to get have been flu clinics and working corporate health fairs. i did work 6 months as a home health nurse until i found out the company was corrupt. i hated home health anyway.since i couldn't get a job my husband and i decided to have a baby. so, now my availability for employers is limited. i love being a mom and only want to work weekends. i did go back to school for my bsn and have a few classes left. not sure how having my bsn will even help.i feel like i am wasted potential and that i wasted my time living out my dream as becoming a nurse. as of june 2012 i will have been out of school longer then i was in school. so, i worry that my skills are poor. is there any hope for me? am i just wasted potential...i feellike it. i don't know what to do with my career as a nurse? let it go? just focus on being a mom? will that hurt me if i do that? i appreciate your input!
