    I am not a muslim (or really anything) but I don't know many muslims and frankly I am very curious about you guys and your religion! Hope you find a job soon!

    Salam auleikum I knew we were out there...just had to dig deep to find us sisters. Glad to know we exist! To tell y'all the truth it's Real Housewives in here, so nursing is my only safe haven and even that's drama too.

    Checking in with my sistas Hihi again-- forgot to subscribe to this so didn't check back on it

    @Enlightenedx: Honestly its mostly a new nurse thing I think, and being a new nurse in a super saturated area. If I had had more than one interview, one might speculate, that its discrimination. However-- I can't get my foot in the door.
    But racism end? Ha... I just saw a survey the other day where some 80-90% polled (can't remember but it was high) said they'd vote for a black President or woman but only 40% would vote for a Muslim.

    @ BlueLightRN: Don't be afraid to ask questions. I know alot of people are afraid to offend, but most my friends and I, we don't care if people ask questions. As long as they aren't questions like... "do you have to wear that head thing in the shower?" (yes...this comes up on more than one occasion) :P As for me I always have a sense of humor

    She said they dont want her to work because she wears a muslim scarf!

    Of course im shocked!! I care about other people's right

    Its like not accepting someone to work because he is black

    I mean, im originally quebecois born and i thought this was only a problem in quebec. Headscarvers were ready to leave the province to get a better job opportunity but it seems that nop! Its racism evrywhere

    Whatever the title, i am more concerned on how they are treated rather than what they are called

    I think my comment was misunderstood anyways. I'm having trouble getting interviews right now so I am not being discriminated against based on my appearance. I've only had one in person interview to date.

    We have a lot of Muslim men and women in healthcare around here- not so many in hijab/veil. Eventually, God-willing I will find a first job. I'm too determined to quit

    Alhamdulilah-- just turned over a 1 year mark in my job and while my location is a challenge I couldn't ask for a better first job as far as experience, pay, and benefits goes. Plus!! I am doing my dream work more often than not-- I've gone from noob nurse to THE OB nurse of my shift Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest!) HE is the best of planners. My favorite part is--- student loan forgiveness. I'll be free, insha' Allah (God willing) of this debt in another 2 years.
