I am a Registered Nurse of minority heritage. I will complete a Master’s degree in Health Education and Promotion May 14, 2017. I currently work full-time in the emergency room. In the past I was the Clinical Coordinator for an outpatient clinic. There I created the policies and procedures, Job description of staff and oversee the growth of this new clinic in the 8 year period I was the coordinator. We started with 0 patients to over 4000 yearly. Due to restructuring full-time staff like myself were placed in other departments.
In trying to get back into middle management positions, I decided to pursue a master’s degree to equip myself with the skills needed. My current manager has encouraged me lots as I apply and got several interviews for jobs in that capacity without success. We both are at a loss as to the reasons as those who are successful are less qualified than myself
I have requested feedback from those on the interview panel so as to identify areas of weakness and strength but none have offered
What else would you suggest as I am mentally bored in my current role but appears to have reached a glass ceiling that is hard to break seeing I don’t know what else to bring forward
