    Capella RN to MSN

    I am also interested in any answers to this question. I am currently enrolled in the BSN-MSN flexpath at capella, but just realized that I cannot obtain the degree at Capella that I need to pursue my FNP. Any suggestions to which masters degree in nursing to obtain at capella in order to obtain my FNP, or which masters program do you all foresee being the best one for finding employment?

    New ADON Job Concerns

    There were no incentives for staff to work extra. No Union. No agency staff. Honestly, I have ZERO LTC experience, it’s always been either inpatient or outpatient nursing, so that certainly could be a huge factor in all of this. I clearly didn’t know what or how a LTC facility runs and who does what. what did I expect my job to be? I was told education, evaluations, competencies. Assisting with recruiting, she told me employee health as well. Those were my expectations. if that’s what they want their adon to do/be, all of those “functions” as you say, that’s fine, but it would have been great to have a heads up ahead of time. That’s all I’m saying

    New ADON Job Concerns

    I don’t know about the MOD, but who knows maybe that would come up on week 2! there is a separate MDS nurse, but staff development was my responsibility as well. The HR woman asked me if I could find a sitter on call for when I was on call & needed to leave the house. Which is not something that we can do. And she did tell me a lot of times because they are so short staffed I would be called in to cover a shift that they couldn’t find coverage of. and no I do not live close by, a good 35 minute drive in good weather. So not very convenient to just jump in my car & go. But like you said, if they had been up front with me, I would’ve known the job just wasn’t for me and I wouldn’t have ever accepted it.

    Starting Capella for BSN....

    I know this post is a little old, but I plan on starting in March (waiting on transcripts!) and I would love to get it done as quick as possible. It's great to hear that this is possible & that I don't have to be committed to another year of school. I plan to go right on for my masters, do you suggest continuing with Capella for this as well? And that's also great to know about the discount. The way you did it makes it so affordable! Did you do this while working?

    New ADON Job Concerns

    No, it certainly was not. Which is unfortunate. I just wish these employers would be more transparent during the interview process so we know what will be expected of us when we start. It's such a waste of everyone's time for things like this to happen. Thank you ??

    New ADON Job Concerns

    Yea, I went in a little blindsided to say the least. I think they wanted to fill the position, so they left out some key details about the job. And yea..just go wait outside in the cold while I make a phone call... I had to pick my jaw up off the floor!! LOL Needless to say, another lesson learned!

    New ADON Job Concerns

    Thank you, I felt the same way. I didn’t like the way I found out about it either. Being told on your first day that “oh yea btw you’re also the compliance & infection control nurse “ I was like, what?!

    Thank you, I do appreciate hearing that how I handled it was the right way. and in your situation, being kept around just to get through a survey is just dirty!

    New ADON Job Concerns

    I honestly don’t know if they are due for survey. I know a lot of the agencies/facilities in my area have been getting visits from the state recently, so that very well could be happening in the near future. the current DON has been in her role for just about a year. I know from the short time I was there, I had heard that the ADON walked off the job due to being overwhelmed, and they are severely short staffed. When I did talk to her about having the 3 different jobs (adon, infection control & compliance) she stated that she herself was going to continue to maintain the employee health part because she didn’t want to completely overwhelm me. So apparently, this position would usually include employee health as well. She couldn’t understand my issue with having all 3 of those roles & when I explained my concerns, she said that was why we were going to go slow with my orientation. Which, is laughable because I had to basically follow her down the hall to her office & corner her to get 3 minutes of her time. This was after I requested to speak with her & she told me she was too busy. (This is my 3rd day on the job remember, and she’s not available to me for questions) I was then blown off to HR to have them “deal with me”, where she stated “well what did you expect?“ “I would have thought you would have known that if you’re on call, there’s the potential to get called into the facility “ I then schooled her on how it should never be assumed that someone knows the full expectations of the job, and that there are jobs where you can be on call & not have to leave your house. Needless to say, they basically said they didn’t have a position there for me if I couldn’t fulfill the requirements of the job.

    New ADON Job Concerns

    So this being my 3rd day as the ADON, I haven't actually seen my boss only in passing. After finding out about the added job roles and on call expectations yesterday I went in today set to speak with her about it. When I saw her this morning, I asked if I could talk to her briefly, and she said she would be down to the office. About 45 min later, she appears, but not to talk to me, it was to bring another new employee her preceptor for the day. I thought she would say to me then, lets go talk, but she didn't, she began to walk away... so I walked after her and I asked her again if she had a few minutes to talk to me. She actually told me NO... and I quickly said, I'll just be a couple minutes I promise. At this point, I'm getting more & more irritated because this woman is supposed to be training me, has already told me on day 1 "oh feel free to come to me anytime you have a question", but yet doesn't have a few minutes to talk to me? So fast forward-- I basically tell her that I have some concerns with the job, being that I didn't find out that I would be covering quality control/compliance, or infection control until my first day during general orientation. And she said, and you have a problem with that why? I told her that I was concerned about the quality of my work, being overwhelmed with 3 job titles/job duties. And she said "well that's why we we're going to go slow with your training". ***- I couldn't even get you in here for 3 minutes, and you plan on taking your time to train me?! HAHA When I addressed the on call expectation, I told her that it was not made clear that I would need to be available to come into the facility on the nights I was on call. She didn't really have an answer. She basically said, so what are you saying? Long story, she had me go speak to HR, who is a total *** btw and asked me, well what did you expect? She told me that I should have expected & assumed that being on call meant that I may need to come into the facility. I told her, that I have been on call many times for other agencies, and they were very clear up front whether the call required me to leave my home or if it were just telephone triage. And I felt that they needed to make that more clear during the interview process. She said she needed to contact her boss, and actually had me leave the building so she could make the phone call. It's 20 degrees here in NY and snowing! But she asked me to go wait outside! Anyway...long story. I ended up leaving, she said she would call me when her boss got back to her.

    New ADON Job Concerns

    So I posted this in another section, but I'm going to post here as well to see if I get more responses, plus I'm adding more information from my first 2 days on the job... So I started a new job today. It’s for the adon of a long term facility. During general orientation, the HR manager happened to throw in that I would also be the infection control nurse and the compliance officer. I also found out yesterday, while speaking to some colleagues, that although I did know that there would be on call responsibilities, no one discussed with me that I would potentially need to leave my home while being on call and come into the facility. I have been on call before and was under the impression that I would be "putting out fires" over the phone, answering questions etc, etc. They didn't tell me that I could potentially have to come in in the middle of the night. That may not be a big deal, but my husband works at night, so I am home alone with our 3 year old, so leaving the house at night is not even remotely possible. If that was a possibility of this job, and I had known about it, I wouldn't have taken it. I don’t feel they were completely transparent about the job (until I got to orientation, and while speaking to other co-workers! ) on what the actual job responsibilities would be. (having the extra roles and the on-call expectation) I'm not sure what to do.. I just started on Monday, I hate to leave a job this quickly.

    ADON etc etc etc

    So I started a new job today. It’s for the adon of a long term facility. During general orientation, they happened to throw in that I would also be the infection control nurse and the compliance officer. A large part of my job as the ADON will be education, part of new hires, mandatory, etc. As well as employee health records. When I took the job, I was under the impression this was for an ADON position which I figured was for education & employee health mainly. I settled on a salary that I felt was acceptable for this position. (Although I was making more as a nursing supervisor elsewhere) Do you think now knowing I’ll have more responsibilities there is a need for renegotiation of my pay or is it too late for that? I don’t feel they were completely transparent about the job until I got to orientation on what the actual job responsibilities would be. Should I wait it out and try to renegotiate after 90 days or just deal with it now because I’ve already signed the paperwork and took the job?

    Getting off the "do not hire" list?

    That’s awful! I’m so sorry that happened to you! It’s places like that that ruin our chances at employment. That’s a ridiculous reason for them to put you on a list & to destroy your chance at another opportunity down the road. I’m on this list at this huge conglomerate of a healthcare facility & I don’t even know why. They won’t disclose the information to me. I have an idea as to why it may be, but if that’s the reason, it has nothing to do with my work performance. Like I had mentioned in a previous posting, it was all workplace gossip. But whatever I guess, thank you for the well wishes. Life does go on & luckily I have been able to find work elsewhere. I do hope that that workplace didn’t cause you too much trouble finding work down the road! ??

    Getting off the "do not hire" list?

    I didn’t know it either obviously! This has been quite the learning experience for me!

    Getting off the "do not hire" list?

    The thing that really stinks about all this is, is that it’s not just one facility. This place is huge. They are a group of medical practices, hospitals, and skilled nursing facilities all that are under their name. So basically I’m not allowed to work for a huge part of my community.
  16. I'm new here, so hello! ?? I have been trolling for a few days, but had something come up today, so figured I would go ahead and ask. I have been looking to change jobs, and have been working with a recruiter. I interviewed for a job via the phone the other day, and was told by the recruiter to expect a job offer. The employer is actually through a hospital system that I worked for almost 10 years ago. I didn't even think twice about it, until today when she told me that I was listed as ineligible for rehire. Now, thinking back, I did have some trouble with some allegations people had made against me, and I ended up resigning. So they must have put me on a do not rehire list. The thing is, all they were were allegations. Nothing was ever proven, because, there was nothing to prove. It was all just gossip, and finger pointing. I called the HR dept today to find out what my personnel record states, but I was not able to get any answers. A person in HR said that its sometimes possible to get the status of your eligibility changed, but the HR managers have to review your personnel record first. So as of right now, my job offer is at a stand still because I don't know if this ever happens or not. Has anyone ever had this happen? Where they were on a "do not hire" list, but were able to get it converted back? And if so, how did they do it? I had no idea that I was even on it! And how embarrassing to find out by my recruiter telling me!
