I'm a Hispanic LPN. I have been working for 2 years as a nurse and 1 year as an aide before that. I live in a predominantly Caucasian area. I have never had trouble with coworkers or managers/supervisors. As long as you are a team player, treat people with respect and present yourself professionally, it should not be an issue. I am sorry you have felt targeted in your job. I cannot speak for everyone, since I know that racism continues to exist, but know that it is not like that everywhere. Now, I did have one patient that was extremely uncooperative with me and made a couple derogatory remarks about my skin color. Initially, it stung, but I soon learned to develop a thick skin. And in my opinion, one patient out of hundreds is not too bad.
If you continue to feel targeted by staff, please report to management. Hopefully they will help mediate the situation.
Stay strong and kudos on continuing your education! I love hearing about fellow Latinos/as furthering their education! I am currently starting a transition to RN program this coming January. Buena suerte! (Good luck!)
