"At the press conference, CNA provided testimony by former nursing supervisors at CPMC and nurses who have faced the discriminatory practices - and hiring data documenting the results.
CPMC's VP of Nursing: "You are not to hire any Filipinos"
Chris Hanks, a former director of Critical Care Services at CPMC, said in a declaration that Karner, told him on a number of occasions, "you are not to hire any Filipinos."
Another former nurse supervisor Ronald Villanueva said in a declaration that he also heard Karner tell another supervisor, "do not hire foreign graduate nurses" - an unambiguous reference to Filipinos."
I truly believe they are discriminating towards Filipino nurses in general, whether they are foreign, immigrant, or U.S. citizen. Yes, I agree that they should hire U.S. graduate nurses first. But using the word, "any," simply means "all." No exemption.
Many of my classmates back in RN school were Filipinos here in the U.S. They are very smart and hardworker. We all graduated the same time and not a single Filipino failed or dropped out from the program. We lost about 40% of our class by the time we graduated. This is public college i'm talking about. Anyone who went and graduated nursing in a public college knows how its like.
The reason why I mentioned this is because they shouldn't be discriminated just because they checked, "Filipino race" in the application form. There shouldn't be no place for discrimination in any workplace. And I hope whoever is responsible gets what he deserves....being FIRED & NEVER WORK AGAIN EVER.
