Unvaccinated Nursing Students Face Hurdles Getting Degrees (Video)


Some nursing students who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 struggle to complete their clinical training and degrees. 

Some nursing schools say it's been more challenging to place unvaccinated students in healthcare facilities that will accept them.

These are some of our fellow Unit Secretaries who are working and going to nursing school simultaneously. 

In my opinion, this mandate will only contribute to the nursing shortage that was present before the pandemic. 

Be Prepared to Work Harder as Unit Secretary (Video)

With the vaccine mandates for healthcare workers spreading across the county, as a Unit Secretary, I want you to be prepared to work harder and longer hours.


You know firsthand about the staffing shortages for those of you who worked at a hospital before the pandemic. 


And the pandemic not only exposed the staffing shortages but also stretched them.


With these vaccine mandates, it will be stretched even more as your coworkers quit or are fired. 


So I want you to get your mind together before you walk through those hospitals doors. 


I want you to be prepared to float to another floor if your department gets shut down. I want you to be ready to float to another floor if another department has needs more significant than your department. 

It Has Begun | Unvaccinated New York Healthcare Workers Either Terminated or Placed on Unpaid Leave (Video)


As the deadline approached Sept. 27 for New York state's healthcare COVID-19 vaccination mandate, many workers rushed to get vaccinated.

But some refused and were either fired or suspended without pay. And they may not qualify for unemployment.


And some hospitals that lost employees had to deal with the fallout immediately, halting elective surgeries and closing departments.


There are hospitals all over the country mandating the vaccine for their employees, and some are facing the same fallout, and others are not.


So we will see how all of this plays out.
