it seems this landmark case is over the head of most nurses so it needs to be reintroduced in terms you can understand. it is about a large group of hospitals banding together to price fix wages and who also blacklist nurses.... Read More

    I've found that you can go from good employee to bad nurse in a millisecond. Especially if a change in management has just recently occurred.

    I can quit-thank goodness the blacklist isn't where I work (at least I think, will find out soon). But I will be replaced easily, and thus, the powers that be will get away with whatever actions they want...

    Tiredbraveheart,
    I am originally from the St. Louis area. Small town hospitals are the worst and the clickiest, (not sure that's a word, but you get the idea).
    I hated being employed by BJC.
    You can have a status of 'rehire', but never get re-hired even if you wanted to. I'm not really sure how the reference check works out. But being blacklisted pretty much sucks. But, I would much prefer to be blacklisted than to get treated like a piece of sh**.
    Good luck in all of your future endeavors! Personally, I'm taking a legal nurse consulting course. I'm all prepared for the exam which I will take in October.
    Then, I plan to open my own business. I'm getting the paper together to form an LLC. I'm only waiting to get my credentials, and I'm on my way. :hatparty: Best of luck to those of you who have a restless spirit, backbone, are willing to take care of yourself.

    Oh, I have worked at several hospitals. I didn't mean that BJC is a small hospital at all. I worked at the one in downtown St.Louis. But small hospitals are much worse.

    Hello,

    I know this is a very old post, I'm in the same boat. Tried to do right by my residents, protect my license, spoke up, got canned by the powers that want you mindlessly obedient without question or valid concerns What's your update about this, are you working now?
