I'm sorry that happen to you. Try not to take those things to heart. In the work force you will run in to more people like her and then some. Unfortunately, not everyone can be "professional" as you can see with this HR person. Be proud of what you are and what you have accomplished. I believe that only Bach degrees and up are considered "professionals" in their career choice. This person could have been a little more polite with their questions. Don't let it get you down, go apply at the next hospital. Best of luck to you.
