I was recently offered a job where as an RN, I will have to report to an LPN. She will be my supervisor, but they are expecting me to sign off on documents that she can't because of her position. I find this very strange and I am not feeling comfortable enough to accept the position. It seems this company is having a LOT of trouble retaining an RN in the position. A few staff members have hinted to me that the LPN likes to gloat and brag that she is the SUPERVISOR, and RNs work under her. In addition she is paid more money; howbeit she has been with the company almost 20 years. I have not committed to accepting the position, I told them that I will let them know by Friday. They tried to pressure me to accept by telling me that they would continue to interview " qualified candidates" and I really needed to let them know ASAP. The HR person confided that they had no other candidates as most RNs refuse immediately when they find out that an LPN would be their supervisor. What do you all think of this situation? Would you be willing to work as an RN under these circumstances. I'm leaning towards rejecting the offer, but I think that would be a "proud" spirit, which is not good. I'm confused, any advice would be appreciated.
