Nurses we are not hiring

I am hearing disturbing things from new nurses who are looking for bedside nursing positions.  I am also hearing bad things from older, hospital trained nurses who are looking to get back into the workforce and or job hunting due to relocations etc.

They cannot find jobs.  This is the situation in the UK and also in the USA.

Hospitals will tell you that there is a nursing shortage.  There is, of course, no shortage of Nurses.  Hospitals simply do no want to hire all the Nurses that are needed to care for the critically ill and complicated patients that are on the wards these days,  End of.

I found this video that was created by a new graduate Nurse. The best part is when the hospital manager tells the Nurse that since there are no jobs at the hospital he should go into long term care (nursing homes) whilst describing the conditions in those hellholes perfectly.

Check it out if you want.

Ha Ha! My trust recently advertised for 5 newly qualified posts. Thats 5 jobs covering 4 hospital sites!

One of the wards has withdrawn their post at the last minute and the lucky 4 that did manage to get jobs have now been told that they will be taken on as band 3 HCAs, with no guarantee of promotion to band 5 staff nurse in the near future.

The pool and bank are not recruiting RNs either.

Merry Xmas everybody!

Hello from a long time fan of your blog.
I wonder if you've come across the new blog from Sue Marsh, http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.com/
She documents the utter horror that general NHS failings mean for patient care, and is very clear that this is not aobut putting blame on hard working nurses.
I hope we in the blogosphere can join forces to fight against the current decimation of our welfare state in the name of 'reform'

And this is why I will stay a HCA. I am not wasting 3 years of study and a hell of a lot of hard work/dedication/money/my life to be told they have no jobs.

Nurse Anne said...

You are smart Sue. I curse the day I stopped being a care assistant and went to nursing school.

Sue said...

If conditions were better, and RNs were given any kind of respect, I would go to "do training" in a heartbeat. I love working in healthcare. But I am not prepared to give in all the hard work and be unable to properly care for people. I see the crap the RNs have to put up with, and I know they are not paid so much more than us. So, until things change, I am looking to get out of the NHS.

Am told the local hospital trust here has recruited 88 nurses from portugal and 44 from Ireland.
I get the local newspaper and have NEVER see an advertisement for nurses.
Isn't it illegal to employ and Registered Nurse as a Health Care Assistant ?

Nurse Anne said...

You have to remember that naything they are recruiting isn't even coming close to replacing the high number that are leaving. Nurses are mostly older, nearing retirement. And the rest are getting the hell out of this country.

The waiting list to become a nurse is up to 5 years long right now just to get in. Yet the province is in a huge shortage of nurses because so many leave as soon as they get their diploma.There has to be a better way then bringing in all these UK nurses. Can they even speak english most of them?I can just imagine the hospitals in a few years. IT is just sickening.
