Since leaving my professional career a few years ago I have had little time to think about what I walked away from. About a month ago I decided to investigate exactly what I would need to do if I ever decided to pursue healthcare jobs once again. As it turns out there is not much I would need to do to go back to work in my profession. The biggest thing I would need to do is take some continuing education classes in order to get back up to speed on changes in my field. Even though I don't plan to return any time in the very near future I feel it is important for me to stay current and keep my licenses active. I know that you never know when life is going to throw you a curve ball that makes returning to work an absolute must. My goal for the next few months is to complete as many continuing education units as I can and then to reactivate my licenses to practice.
