Education that is not really supported

Original post made by RN for Education on May 22, 2010

Stanford hospital has proposed a new PNDP (staff level criteria) for its' nurses. This staff level criteria is based on obtaining higher education and certifications. Higher education is without argument, always a great thing. The problem is that put forth so called stated verbal agreements between management and employees. These verbal agreements were never recalled by the employee as ever discussed. So your blocked from reducing your hours to go back to school by silent or hidden rules. When approached regarding such issues, they pass the buck, in hopes you will tire and forget about it. Is this really the way to promote a goal of higher ed, for even that matter, employee retention. I find for a hospital that has a renound reputation, their administration does not practice what it preaches. This is unfortunately a shame, which results in poor moral and loss of great employees who wish to obtain education and climb the clinical ladder.
