Let the job hunt begin.
I recently resigned my position as a RN case manager for a wonderful hospice company here in Austin. It literally broke my heart to resign. I truly loved my job, the people, the support offered. I miss my patients. But, physically, I cannot perform to their expectations. I cannot drive 100+ miles per day and handle a caseload of 14+ patients in a rural/economically depressed area.
So I am now looking for the perfect job (if it exists) that has enough flexibility to allow me to continue my medical treatment (chemo).
I am being honest with employers. I have some limitations, mostly physical. It wouldn’t be fair to apply for a job that I know I can’t perform.
I’m concentrating on work-from-home jobs. Nurse triage specifically. I have no experience with insurance, although I’m willing to learn.
I have been a nurse for nearly 10 years, in many many many different areas of expertise. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. If anyone has experience executing a job search while chronically ill, I’m interested in your input as well.
I need to generate some sort of income or we will be evicted. Its that bad.
