Quote from Ms.MayaRN
Your right been let go for not a good fit doesn't lessen the sting but I am going to carry it with my head high that is good for me in the long run.
I was told It would be best not too included this experience in my references or to update my resume. If I wasn't a good fit why would I believe you going to care for my behalf.
Well yes that is one way to look at things, but then again it also removes those several weeks of experience which no matter how short are just that from your resume.
Being released before completing orientation is not new or totally uncommon. Again you didn't *kill* anyone or make any major nursing/med errors, well nothing that was brought to your attention anyway. You showed up to work on time and gave 100%, which is all anyone can ask.
So maybe you keep the stint off your resume, but if asked about recent experience at an interview consider how you'll respond. Again it helps if your previous hospital and yourself are on the same page. Most former employers including hospitals will tell you what they are going to say in response to reference requests. If you have any *friends* in the HR department ask them how things are with your file.
Again being dismissed for "no reason" whilst still new happens. People in position of hiring new nurses know this and know what questions to ask (and how to find out) if you did something unprofessional and or whatever. OTHO if the place you left is a hellhole known for churing through new graduates then that is taken into account as well.
