A nurse assistant is on the move from her home state to New York City in search of the right job.
But for the new position, the woman’s new employer is offering her an opportunity to help those who need it the most.
“I was going to say, ‘Oh, I can’t take any more work.
I have to get a new job,'” she said, as she was taking her first day of work at the Brooklyn Brooklyn College Medical Center.
Her new boss is a Brooklyn College medical assistant program, and she’s looking forward to working with the students, the staff and the patients she will be helping.
“It’s so exciting.
I’m a very, very active nurse,” she said.”
But I have a very special place in my heart.”
The medical assistant, who has only been in New York for about a month, is currently on a waiting list for a job in the city.
“There are so many people who are in need of medical services, and I have no idea what the future holds for us,” she told Al Jazeera.
“When I first arrived, I thought I was going home and it was going be a short-term arrangement.
But when I saw that there were some real problems that needed to be fixed, I was like, ‘I have to do something.'”
While the nurse’s experience may be temporary, the medical assistant hopes the program can provide a long-term solution to the medical needs of those who rely on the city’s health care system.
“The medical assistants that I work with have a lot of knowledge about how to manage people,” said the Brooklyn College student, who works at the medical center’s emergency department.
“We’re able to take a patient, we know what’s going on with the person, we’re able have a conversation about it, we understand what’s the treatment plan, we do what we need to do.”
For a nurse, that can be difficult.
“A lot of times when people are having a crisis, they have a few questions that are really important to them, and they’re asking us, ‘Where can I get help?
Can I go to the doctor?'” she said of her patients.”
And it’s really hard for them to understand what they need and what they can do.”
A shortage of nurses in New Jersey and New York has been a big concern for years, but the shortage has only gotten worse.
“This shortage is so extreme, and we don’t even know what to do about it,” said Dr. Josephine McDaniel, a professor at New Jersey State University and the director of the Medical Assistant Program.
“One of the things that’s been really great is the fact that we have some really good, experienced nurses, and it’s like, here we go again.”
In fact, New Jersey’s state government has started looking at hiring more medical assistants, as well.
In an effort to increase its nursing workforce, the state has allocated $100 million to establish the first state-funded nursing program, which will be administered by the New Jersey Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
The program will be staffed by nurses trained in advanced practice nursing (APN) and a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) to help residents with acute care needs.
“That’s an exciting opportunity for us, and there are a lot more places that are going to want to hire nurses,” said McDaniel.
“If we can recruit them, then we can have more doctors and more nurses, that’s the main objective.”
Dr. David Tuck, the director at the Medical Center, said the medical program has a long way to go.
“As a nurse I have never experienced something like this, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen it,” he said.
“We have to make sure we have as many nurses as we can, so that when the crisis comes, we can respond quickly.”
In New York, there are currently around 9,500 medical assistants working in the state, and in the first three months of 2017, there were more than 14,000 registered nurses.
The Medical Assistant School, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is working with more than 50 of them, but said there are still a few positions that need to be filled.
“In a state like New York that has a very limited number of registered nurses, there is a shortage of RNs, so we are very interested in recruiting and training as many RNs as we possibly can,” said Tuck.
“Most of our students come from the nursing programs in other states, so it’s a really good opportunity for them.”
Tuck said that the medical school has been able to find more than 2,000 nurses through the medical assistants program in the past year.
“Because of the shortage, we have to find a way to recruit more RNs,” he
