    The reason govt is pushing nursing for displaced workers is because it is a job that cannot be outsourced! Cities and states want their citizens to have stable employment to maintain the tax base. It is really out of desperation. Companies have become very adept at "blackmailing" local communities and states and starting a bidding war between different states, the one trying to keep them and the ones trying to lure them away. It is very lucrative for the businesses, but very destructive for the communities! Many times they push thru pay cuts, freezes or a second tier $14-15/hr max for the workers involved!

    What is really sickening is after they win and force these pay cuts and tax credits, they then turn around and give the big shots millions of dollars in bonuses. It is very sad!

    I'm having a problem with this and was wondering if any of the posters can figure this out. We are retraining displaced workers for other areas into nursing yet I am an RN with 32 years of acute care bedside nursing practice online applying for these jacked up nursing positions due to my unemployment status. Here i have clearly and distinctly applied for CM/UM positions- same job description and requirements( as noted below) but one is 'per deim' and one is 'full time'. The staus of application on both are clearly and distinctly posted straight from my
    "jobs manager" LOL!! The infinate wisdom of all these high tech HR "TOOLS"(LOL- I mean that in the most unflattering way to HR's everywhere) has designated me as "not selected" for the full time position but has me as "received submission" for the perdeim position. My entry to the pre-qualifing questions "Are you an RN and Do you have 3 years case managment experience" are exactly the same in each, yet I am qualified for a perdeim position but not a full time position?? If I only have 2 years in CM would one logicall think I would be more qualified for the full time and not the perdeim?? The only thing I can deduct is that all my past employment is on the resume also include to this farse of an application which is dated back to 1985( my first nursing position)!! The "support services associate=prn" position is an application to a housekeeping position- I threw that in to see if I get a call- that a 56 yr old RN is too old for a nursing position but not for a houskeeping position. The UM withdrawn position was for the same position( they were looking for 2 nurses) I got the same response- "not selected" and they got a rather nasty note in their comment box as to why I would be qualified for housekeeping and a UM perdeim but not UM full time - age discrimination.
    And we are bringing in more nurses into the profession- by hook and crook, in a nursing glut!! I didn't drink the "kool-aide"!! Flame me if you will, the facts speak for themselves. There is age discrimination in Nursing. ( sorry for the 'bold" I was not able to copy and paste their graphics/excell and post)
