I graduated in 2010 and passed NCLEX. I have no RN work experience so I had to put my license in an inactive status. I know I have to do a refresher course to reactivate my license. My question is: should I do a LPN refresher and hopefully get a job (after taking NCLEX-PN)? or should I take RN refresher course? I am afraid that the first question an interviewer will ask me are ” Do you have any experience?” and “What have you done since you graduated nursing school?”. I tried to convince my self over these years and I am OK even if I don’t work as nurse. But every time I see nurses in stores or pass by hospital, it leaves me yearning to give nursing another go.
My thinking of doing LPN is to get into the field to have confidence to do nursing skills in a less scary environment like long term facility where the patients are more stable. And hopefully after a while do the RN refresher course.
Thanks in advance for any advice all you wonderful nurses will give me.
