I feel your pain … hugs. I wish HR would get to know the fabulous person you are, but you and I both know that they don’t really care about you as a person. The have a round hole to fill and on paper you look like a square peg. I’m not saying you need to change yourself, but sometimes you just have to ‘game the system.’ Get the certificates they want, address the experiences they are looking for, when in reality your better experiences are in another field, use the keywords from the facilities mission statement, etc.
I have a thing for nursing hats, so I would give you the job if I could, but those HR types aren’t as easy going as I, so tell them what they want to hear, and save all of your best qualities, the ones that really matter, for your patients.
