i had a co worker say to me she does not fell the should hire my ethinic group because we don't like to work new year. and that this not my country this is America. are there any other minorities finding it dificult work in the units and they feel it would be easier if they were "right'" nurse.
Honestly, I doubt it is you ethnicity that is preventing you from getting a job, if that's what you're saying.
I work in the MICU/SICU in NYC, and I can tell you that in the SICU, the cheif surgeon is black, and he's absolutely dedicated and brilliant. Everyone looks up to him. In the MICU the chief MD is a Russian woman who immigrated to the US. The majority of my RN co-workers are Philipino immigrants, as well as black Jamacians, Russians, Chinese, Koreans, white and black Americans etc.
We all work together, we are all friends, most of us are very good at what we do. I love working with the diverse group of people that we have. I look up to and respect them. I go to them for advice and guidance. I'm a white, American born male.
