    Just out of curiosity how can you (and all the previous posters) say this has nothing to do with the union? Isn't it a union policy? I'm only asking because my friends that work in big system hospitals (in Texas where there is no union) have no problem rotating through different facilities as needed. I'm just curious because wouldn't the hospital benefit from having nurses that could rotate as needed- it just doesn't make sense to me. Explain - don't flame
    This is not a union policy per se, but one of the employer as well. And this is not a big hospital system either. But it is not just CNA, or any other union that has this in place also.

    You are talking of two different states as well, and the rules are different.

    I am an R.N. who works at TriCity medical center, which became unionized sometime in 2006. Recently, I began searching for another job to supplement my income because the senses in my current place of work has been low leading to a financial hardship on myself.

    With that being said I found a job at TriCity Hospice, however I am being told by HR that I cannot accept the position nor be offered the position because the Hospital unit I work on is unionized and the Hospice is not.

    Can the CNA prevent me from obtaining a job that is not unionized while I work in a facility that is?

    If anyone has any information regarding this matter please respond and if you can provide resources please do so.

    I am a bit confused...a CNA, (meaning Certified Nursing Assistant) is keeping you from getting a unionized position? Or does the acronym CNA mean something else? Please clarify...thanks!

    In talking of unions the abbreviation CNA refers to California Nurses Asssociation , sometimes you may see it with this format CNA / NNOC ( National Nurses Organizing Committee ).

    Greatly appreciated. I thought about it afterwards and thought a similar thing. Thanks for the clarity!
