I remember even when I was in college, my last semester, the one class section connected with a magnet hospital was thought of as the "booby prize" section.
In other words, if you were one nanosecond late in clicking that "enroll now" key on your computer at the college semester enroll date and time, you ended up not in your hospital of choice, but in the magnet hospital. Of course, I ended up in that section. That was the first time I didn't somehow get the section I wanted, so what can ya do.
True to form, the nurses were ridiculously unhappy there. They didn't hide it from us, either. This hospital also was over 80% foreign nurses at that time, and had become so very quickly. So, on top of the nursing staff being overworked and overstressed in general, you had some of your foreign nursing staff saying stuff like, "why are you here, you will never work here." They told several of us right in front of other staff that the nursing jobs
were for them and their relatives who were promised nursing jobs and were waiting to get on a plane to come here.
Magnet is just a "tool" for, well people who are "tools" IMO.
