Forgive the rant...I'm lost, someone please send directions!
For years I've worked pre-hospital...never had a problem finding a shift...as a matter of fact I recall shutting my phone off and ducking everytime a fire truck rolled by my place...all in the name of a day off.
They're shutting down local fire stations...fire fighters and medics are getting laid off left and right...can't find a per diem position to save my life.
I hear about the nursing shortage and yet I see veteran RN's being sent home because of low acuity.
I come in for a shift on my home unit and get transferred to another floor...I've never been here!
Finally...I think something is wrong in the world when I can't find a job in the Emergency Department of a regional hospital because I don't speak fluent Spanish.
Is there something else I can do with a BSN?
