yes, i have. after giving up nursing (as i kept failing chemistry) i felt beat and so sad because thats all i ever wanted to be. at the age of 20 i was on a disabilty pension for chronic fatigue- then i decided what a great time to get back to university and start over. so i did, even though it was super hard, but i now have 2 degrees and im proud that i seized that opportunity to do something with my life.
Good Morning Everyone,
Yes I have seized many opportunities but my most recent was back in October when my friend called to tell me there was an add in the local paper looking to hire substitute nurses for the school district. I have been sending out a few feelers but nothing had popped up.
So I sent for the app and then I waited. After 3 weeks I called the person I sent app to and she said all apps had been forwarded to the nurse manager for the school district. After that I waited and still nothing. I sort of gave up and of course started to go into the I am not good enough, to old etc.
I received a call right before Christmas asking me if I could come to orientation on January 7th from 9:00 am to 1:00 PM. She also stated that orientations would be set up for all the other schools too. We have 5 schools in town. Large senior high, junior high and 3 public grade schools. I was almost giddy as I said yes, I will be there.............
I am not sure if that means I have been hired into the pool of subs they want to have available or what............but hey, I will be at the orientation.
Hugs to all

Thank you Junebug so much for validating my overcoming my anxiety and actually making up my mind to get back out there and use my nursing skills. It has been 3 long years of sitting here alone and wishing I could belong somewhere.
I have been holding back on saying anything in case it all falls apart but hey at least I made the decision and am going for it.
I was hoping for lots of hugs and kudos, but CBT has taught me I can give those to my self.
sending you oodles of hugs for seizing the opportunity to do the nursing for the schools. I hope all goes well on January 7th. This sounds like you (wanting to care for others). You'll have to let us know how it goes. Anxiously awaiting January 7th to check out your post here in the forum. Best of wishes to you.
