    Hospitals Firing Seasoned Nurses: Nurses FIGHT Back!

    It has been nearly one year since I left a staff nurse position that I had held for 25 years.As an RN with over 30 years experience ,I was at the top of my pay scale.If management wants to replace senior staff they have multiple tactics to strongly encourage "retirement".Schedule changes,shift changes,improvement plans,poor evaluations and removal of incentive pay were only a few examples.The predictability of their plan was almost comical.Management thinks we have no idea what they are up to?The blatant disregard for patient safety and staff development will eventually bite them in their dollar driven behind.Healthcare is about individuals,that is why it can never succeed as a business-to many variables.Nursing is quickly losing the very essence of the profession.....young nurses need mentors and the "gut feeling" of an experienced nurse will alarm long before any electronic monitor.As the mother of a nurse I can only hope for improvement as she deals with the ever changing enviroment of healthcare.
