I have always wanted to work as a nurse. When I graduated high school I work as an aide with no problems with my allergy. This wasn't a latex safe facility. I moved on to another local hospital to get my foot in the door before nursing school. This facility is latex safe. I applied and was offered a job until they tested me for a latex allergy. The second they found out I was allergic they pulled my offer. I am no longer allowed to do any type of clinical job even though we are a latex safe facility. I now have a low level clerical job. I stopped applying for nursing school and started to go for my graduate degree in health care admin (I already had my bacholers degree in health science). I can't help but miss my time working on the floor and feel like I should still try for my nursing degree. Has anyone out there had a similar situation? What type of work did you do? I am having a hard time moving up within the company without my RN.
