I applied for a position in a differerent department at my job. I am a new graduate ADN with 4 years of LPN experience. The position I applied for was a trainable position, meaning they were supposedly willing to train. I was interviewed by two nurses from that department.
During the interview, one of the nurses stated that she didn't think I had enough experience to perform the required duties despite my prior LPN experience, experience working in LTC and working with the residents on the specific units the job catered too. Her colleague looked very surprised by this statement and changed the subject.
I just learned that the position was filled with a brand new graduate ADN with no prior experience in nursing what so ever. The only difference between us other than what's been mentioned is race.
I have yet to speak with my DON or ADON concerning this matter. I don't know what to say? I am definitely looking for other employment at this point.
