Taken a break, but ready work again


Tammy asks: I am currently an RN with full AHPRA registration. I finished my grad year in 2018 Feb and only worked agency up until February 2019 for a big surgery. Despite having statements of services, grad year completion certificates and current CPD, as I’m ready to re-enter nursing now, I cant find or land a job as the only 3 clinical references I had (due to an assault and missing time I only had 3 references whom actually worked with me) have said that they feel it has been too long to keep using them.

I was wondering if other nurses have faced the same challenges after taking a break from nursing and how they overcame them.
