I deferred my nursing dream till I had my children off doing their own lives. I took classes and work 1 sometimes 2 jobs. In December received my BSN in nursing passed my NCLEX the first time. All you hear is there is a nursing shortage. At 56, the only shortage I feel is no one willing to hire me or call back. I am able bodied, have worked in a warehouse for 21 years until last August and never worried about being laid off because I was almost... see more

I applied for my nursing license via endorsement in Illinois October 12th. I still have not received anything. I haven't worked since August and I am afraid its impacting me negatively due to the gap of employment. Ive been offered so many amazing jobs that I can't take. Then I thought i could work in Wisconsin with my multistate license BUT that state requires you to establish residency with in 2 weeks of working. What should I do?


Have you contacted the state nursing board?
Maybe you should start there and also contact the nurses union.

In October of 2017 I was unceremoniously fired from a job. The writing had been on the wall for months, but I refused to believe that the day would ultimately come. I had even asked my direct supervisor to let me know if I ever need to start looking for a new job. (I was in a no-win situation with a member of upper management.)

I didn't get the requested courtesy and had decided that as long as my direct supervisor was fine with me, I would be... see more

I’m an ADN-RN and I have been “terminated” from the last 3 jobs I have had for being a “great Nurse but not a great fit.” Which in each I can agree with because they were not in the area of Nursing I wanted to be working in. And for those who are reading this and not of the medical field, getting in your specialty can be either a great pain in the butt, because you have to work at least 2 years on a med/surge floor, than another 1-2 years on a... see more
