Hi all, I have a youngin' in my life that is interested in a career in #healthcare! 👏🏼

Is anyone here currently working as a #CNA? If so, could you share a bit about your daily duties and HOW you got into this career?

THANKS SO MUCH! :)

Racist clients

I'm a black woman. I recently took a new nursing assignment through an agency I've been with for almost a year. My recruiter thinks highly of me and told me I'd be a "good fit". Today I spoke with my recruiter and she asked me if I were having any issues which I thought was odd because why would I be. She goes on to say that the family of the clients I care for are racist and has a preference for white nurses. She never even told the family that I was black, so there I was meeting these people for the first time not knowing they had a bias against me. The family of the clients have been around quite often, they haven't been rude but it's still upsetting that my recruiter would put me in this kind of predicament. I don't care that these people are racist.. I'm very happy with the skin I'm in, but I would not have chose to work for them and in their home at that! The energy felt a bit off at times but I didn't know why but what I do know is that racists are good at hiding it when it's convenient. My recruiter asked that I not behave any differently and would like for me to keep the assignment since there aren't any blatant problems. I think I should walk away from it, these people are faking as though they like me only because I do a great job. It will feel forced and awkward, I can't ignore that and I will not be a token black woman. Thoughts?

Hi Candice taylor , I'm sorry that you've been put into this tough situation. If you are not comfortable in your placement, then I would highly recommend you ask about options to transfer. No one should ever feel uneasy at work, especially when you're working so closely with your clients.

Keep us updated! Good luck, Candice.

Writing Continuing Education Content for Your Profession

Do you like to write and edit content? Are you part of a profession that requires continuing education? Here is something to consider. Many companies that offer continuing education content and products need people to write, edit, and update that content. This work may be able to be done remotely and/or on a contract basis. For example, if you are a nurse, you'd want to take any continuing education classes from an American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) approved provider (as it is more likely to be accepted toward your state's continuing education requirements). On the ANCC page below, take a look at the list on the "download accredited organizations." This list contains ANCC approved organizations, which offer continuing education courses and they may need writers for their content, especially any company that is expanding their content in the marketplace. As well, healthcare content always needs to be current, so you might be surprised by what you find.

https://www.nursingworld.org/organizational-programs/accreditation/find-an-accredited-organization/

Even if you aren't a nurse, you can use this same approach to seek writing work in your profession by finding out if there is a similar organization like ANCC, and looking at the companies that are approved by them for opportunities.

Great Nurse not a Great Fit x3 now no on will hire me

I’m an ADN-RN and I have been “terminated” from the last 3 jobs I have had for being a “great Nurse but not a great fit.” Which in each I can agree with because they were not in the area of Nursing I wanted to be working in. And for those who are reading this and not of the medical field, getting in your specialty can be either a great pain in the butt, because you have to work at least 2 years on a med/surge floor, than another 1-2 years on a ER/Trauma Unit. Plus you must receive & maintain multiple certifications that can only be acquired if you are working in a hospital. That’s the pain in the butt way. Now I know some people I went to school with were able to get onto units of their choice because they knew someone who was able to get them in. Anyway back to my “terminations.” My very first job as a RN was in home Care with NICU babies, which I stayed at for a little over 2 years before I decided to get my first Hospital job. Actually It was the only way I could get a Hospital job was getting 2 years experience in home care first. I went from 1 patient a night to one of the busiest ERs in the metro area. I was let go at the end of my probation because I couldn’t handle a full patient load by the end of my time. I was told I was a Great Nurse with Great skills and that they didn’t like letting me go, but they needed someone who could handle a full load on their own. I was acceptable for rehire in the hospital but I didn’t receive any help from them in relocating. The next two places I work were places said the same. I have been unemployed since August and have tried applying at hospitals only to be told by on HR department I wasn’t hirable because of my terminations. I’ve really lost my confidence and have become very depressed and my anxiety is through the roof. I’m not sure what to do anymore. I have really blown some interviews because of my anxiety. What should I do?

Hi Meghan Mallon , I don't have a work background in the Healthcare industry but I can certainly understand your level of concern over your sustainability and career development challenges based on the feedback I've heard from other members seeking career opportunities within the same industry.

Has your inability to "fit in" all been ties into workload management for all 3 previous separation of employment instances? If so, is it save to say that your ultimate career goal to work in a hospital environment rather than a smaller clinic or home healthcare organization?

The healthcare industry, in general, can be a very close knit community so you may need a whole new set of reference contacts to use with new job prospects you have an opportunity to meet with.

Okay, time to bring in more experienced resources into this conversation who can help identify alternative job search strategies. I'm goin to tag Donna Habick , Linda Gibson , Joanne Cleveland into this conversation and ask for their feedback. They all have extens@Meive career back grounds in the healthcare industry from a Supervisory level and beyond. I'm sure they can offer you some valuable suggestions.

In the meantime Meghan Mallon stay focused and continue to evaluate all your options to remain within your career industry. A positive change is about to happen in you job search. Keep at is and don't lose hope!!
