So I'm just at the beginning of my nursing journey. I mean really
beginning in that I'm start off looking for work as a CNA, as I've just gotten my license. I plan on getting my LPN next working my way to DNP eventually, but that's another story.
Anyway... I live in the Seattle area right now, and hopefully this isn't too common, but I've noticed it here: job ads specifying female caregivers only
for entire facilities
. I understand that if it were for a HHA position then discriminating gender is perfectly valid because of patient rights, but entire facilities to discriminate against men is a bit unfair, no?
I thought this sort of thing was illegal. What is the route of action one can take in these instances? I mean obviously I wouldn't want to work for a facility that didnt want me, but at the same time they have to be punished for their discriminatory practices, no?
Sorry if this comes off a bit "ranty", or has already been discussed. I'm just curious as to what one should do when running into this, as I have the feeling this will be happening quite a bit more than I would like.
