I'm currently on a phased return to work as a nurse in a busy A&E dept after being off all year and being diagnosed with Fibro. I'm only managing a couple of shifts a week so far. I love my job to bits and its what I always wanted to do, but in the long run, I don't think A&E is the place for me now I know I have this condition and it is such a struggle at times.
I've seen a job advertised, which is far more suitable. Its 10 mins from my house [my current job is in another town and 45 mins drive away. Slightly less hours but enough to cope on financially, and far less physically demanding.
I am definitely going to apply for it, but I'm wondering.......When do I tell them about my fibro? They will obviously find out about my sickness this year due to it when they ask for references. Should I just be open and honest on the application and tell them why I'm wanting to apply, or do I wait until interview, or after references?
I am more than qualified for the job and am just worried the fibro may out them off
Have any of you had experience of this, good or bad?
Thanks, Sam xxx
