I would love to return to healthcare, it's my passion to help people. However, it's unrelenting to the mistakes I've made; as it should be. No, not drug related and not job related mistakes. Still, legal issues. After 9 years, my career as a nurse is still paying for them. That's OK. My relationship with my family is stronger than ever so it was worth it. I'm currently seeking employment in-food service, dishwashing, and laundry attendant. When it's right, my privilege to work in healthcare will present itself. Thanks to my followers and all comments received. #jobsearch #wordsofadvice #advice #healthcare #motivation #humility #unemployment
Best of Luck to you Angie:
Thats really a testament to how backwards our employment culture has gotten over what i would say is the last 40 years.
- Larger and larger distance in salary between the employee on the bottom or middle rung compared to the CEO or other top Executive. Its gotten rediculous!
- The work environment has gone from semi-private workspaces to what resembles dairy cattle lined up in a milk production plant. From offices in the 80s and back to cubicles in the 90s, to half cubes and quarter cubes in early 2000s, to Open floorplan with complete visibility into everyone's workspace in 2010's, to right around 2016- High Tables to stand at lined up in rows of 5 to 10 side by side. With no space or partition to high traffic walkways directly along these rows where its not uncommon to see no less than 10 to 15 managers walking by per minute looking down on your screen and half of them will come by 10 to 20 times an hour. Then theres the nosey neighbors who stare at their neighbors screens from the corner of their eye constantly all day, as well as counting and jotting down how many bathroom and smoke breaks the neighbors take and if they went outside the normal work sites online like Facebook or YouTube or FB messages, and of course they monitor and notate all observed phone calls and texts. Then the my either email, or more likely race over and let their 7yr old maturity tae the wheel and snitch and taddle and gossip to the team lead or manager on the next dairy cow line over. All the while not finishing their own work. And whats worse, is there are TONS of very immature, gossipy, nasty judgemental, clique drawn, napoleon syndrome 🤔 having leads, that feed into that behavior.
I do Home Healthcare.At this point of time you should be glad you are not working as a nurse.Its terrible.I know nursing school was really hard and expensive but I think at this point of time you are lucky not to be working in Healthcare.Things happen for a reason.You are probably sick of hearing that but it's true. Consider yourself lucky.Good luck in the next chapter of your life.
