]I am very sorry for any one who has gone through what his poster describes. I hope this can resolve at some point.
Many times people get chewed up by the system, we depend on being able to take a lot of wearing down of our pride and having to be under the rules.
The only thing I know to do is research any school one may consider for training. See if actual graduates from the school are in a job somewhere. Do whatever it takes to get though training. Even after all of this, one can still lose out, depending on each individual situation.
Most of us won't play the race angle in a public forum, in a complaint, because anyone can find what is said and it can very easily haunt a person. If there is a race element, a person should use the channels in place to address these kinds of grievances.
I am male and white, and 52 yrs old. No overt discrimination has taken place. Some feel I don't belong in nursing, because I'm male, and it can cause problems for me. I have had no problems that interfere with my current schooling.
My African American instructor is one of the best nursing instructors in the area, and my class is all white. The class immediately behind mine is 1/2 black and 1/2 white, with no males.
Nursing is a difficult and demanding job, due to the rigorous training and the demanding clinicals. All professions have some of the 'eat thier young' mentality, nursing seems to be a little worse than others in this regard.
Knowing all this, nursing is a great profession and it is changing in so many ways.
Fight through any avenue you have to to get to your goal. It is when you quit, that you fail.
I wish you success in your goal of being a nurse.
