    Nursytee-----SO VERY SORRY The other nurse - the one hasseling you - did she get the job? Lord knows I hope not for the other staff's sake! She should have been the one canned, not you. Now what you have to do is pick yourself up, dust off your brittches, and get a BETTER job!!:typing Look up places on the net. I know you'll do great things one day!!!!!!!!

    As far as I know, the management position is yet to be filled, but she is actively pursuing it feverishly. The other bad experience right now is that people are making up new reasons why I was let go. You know, gossiping to make it more juicy. That is so painful to hear about.

    Now as for good news. I'm supposed to start a new job on Wednesday. I'm excited but a little fearful the same thing will happen again once I start pouring myself into the job. As time goes by, I feel more and more depressed about what has happened. It's difficult to swallow. I have never ever been fired from a job. I just wish this hadn't happened.

    My mom is having considerable difficulty dealing with the lack of humanity in her work environment too. Do you know how I could find out if her CNA certificate/degree is transferable to work in Oregon? Who can I ask or where to I look to see if she has to retake the test?

    hi cetacea,
    I live in Illinois and we a form on the Department of Public Health's website that someone can download if they have certification in another state. Of course, there is a catch, the CNA course that your mom took would have to meet the Illinos CNA course certification guidelines. So, here in Illinois you need 80 hours of theory and/or lab time and 40 hours of clinical time. You just need to look up the certifying agency in Oregon.
    Good luck to you and you mom
