Covid Testing RN's - Film & Entertainment

by hopetoyouall hopetoyouall (New) New

I would like to first start out by saying my heart goes out to each and every one of you that is maintaining their personal program throughout the craziness and often punitiveness  (IMO) of these monitoring programs.  I have a family member in a monitoring program and have witnessed first hand at the arduous process to have a license reinstated. 

Many of you are in limbo, trying to get your license back but can't at the moment.  I work in the entertainment industry and as production gets back on their feet, Covid Safety Teams are being implemented for each and every tv show and film. And there are A LOT, all over the country, many in Los Angeles.  I spoke with one of our team testing RN's today and asked if all of them needed a RN license to be apart of the team.  She said only one was, the rest did not.  Sooooo,  perhaps this is something that any of you could apply for, just a thought.  

I found this job post from Indeed.com
