This might sound like common sense but believe me a lot of people do not know this answer. Some background, I work for a substance abuse treatment center. Among the medical staff we have 1 RN, several LVN's, LPT's, EMT's, MA's and CNA's. We have all been very upset and a lot of people are leaving and/or looking for other work because people are finding out our supervisor does not have a license or even a certification. Just recently HR posted a job opening looking to hire a lead. I emailed HR asking if the "lead" has to have a nursing license and the response was yes. I was of course confused because my own supervisor does not hold any credentials at all, I'm a CNA. My supervisor received this position because her step father was someone in upper management. She was also told when getting this position she will either have to be enrolled in a nursing program or receiving her degree, that was about 4 years ago. This person has acted like a nurse this whole time, giving flu shots, TB's, when JCAHO and State came she was in meetings with them and doing "nursing" duties. Let me know your opinions, thoughts.
