Introducing myself. Lookiing for pearls of wisdom on upcoming interview
Hello. I have been a lurker here for quite sometime and have finally decided to peek my head out. I am a 55 yo woman who like so many others, dreamed of a nursing career. I scrimped and saved, then depleted said savings to attend nursing school and graduate with honors and an ADN. I then worked for 3 years in critical care, thinking this would be a great way to gain clinical expertise. I found it very stressful and was less than enchanted with my career, although I loved caring for my patients. That job ended with me being forced to resign by new management, who was less than enchanted with me. I have since hid out at home ashamed at my failure, not really sure where to go or what to do, or how to find my niche. Today I have hope, as I have a job interview scheduled for possible work in the home health sector. I am trying to compile a list of questions for my prospective employer and am coming up with a lot of blanks. Any good questions you can suggest? Also, I did resign, but was forced to do so. How do I broach this topic without putting myself or my past employer down? Is it necessary to divulge this?
