I'm getting terminated from my first nursing job - page 5

I have violated a hospital policy, not in patient care or a hippa violation, but I've made a mistake of hooking up with a coworker in the parking lot after work. This ended up to the manager, and we... Read More

    What a leap. I hope you're not trying to group yourself with HIV patients and drug addict patients as those are legitimate conditions. Getting busted for hooking up in a parking lot doesn't spark a lot of compassion in me. Sorry. Hope you learn from your actions and it doesn't affect future employment.
    couldn't careless what you think, you're opinion does not matter.

    I was referring to BostonFNP's post where he/she said hanky panky happens all the time between coworkers. Must be one of those sexy TV hospitals!
    That must be it.

    but when i clock off, i do whatever i want, it's no ones business, but i misjudged this and made a huge mistake.
    What happens on your employer's property is most definitely your employer's business. Take it off campus, then it's your business.

    Resign or get fired?
    You could take your chances, maybe you won't get fired and if you do maybe you can collect unemployment.
    Wanton misconduct usually disqualifies one from unemployment.

    OP, so you wanna know what you should do?

    Stop sulking and start applying to other jobs right away. Doesn't matter which thing happens, it may take a short while for it to happen, so if they can your butt for being immature, or, you become a big joke, you just may be able to get out and start a new job without too much harm.

    Well, if the OP is a guy we should stop referring to him as a "she."

    And to the OP, here's the thing: you are going to be judged for this. Here, by your coworkers if you're not fired, by prospective employers if it gets to them, etc. You're not being judged for something you had no control over; you're being judged for exercising very poor decision making, and you know what, that is a completely fair reason to be evaluated and judged. Telling us not to judge you and saying "yeah I know it was wrong but don't kick me when I'm down" suggest that you don't fully appreciate that bad decisions often have bad consequences that you must deal with. Sometimes it's not enough to say "my bad, won't happen again" and everyone moves on. Sometimes it takes time to rebuild your reputation.

    I say this as someone who royally screwed up in the past; my mistake makes yours pale in comparison. You are nowhere near done eating crow for this, so take a deep breath, think about what is being said here, and be prepared to be completely humble and apologetic with your employer.
    you know nothing about what happened. I already said i was on a leave, and i have been so apologetic to my employer and asked for a second chance, and all what you are saying, I already know. judging people for their poor decision is still judging, you know nothing about me, who i am, and youre based on your opinion on something i did.

    you make no sense.

    But here you are defensive and angry about being judged based on your actions. If someone kills another person, would you judge them for committing murder, or would that be wrong? Because that's judging, after all. What you did clearly isn't equivalent to murder of course, but it's something you did of your own free will and is completely appropriate to judge. What exactly SHOULD people base their opinions of you on?

    We ARE our actions. They define us. Decisions carry consequences, including the consequence of being judge. You are not a victim here.

    It sounds like you don't take constructive criticism well.

    You've said you don't care what other people think, you don't care what someones opinion is.

    "You make no sense" to hiddencatRN? You need to gain some insight.

    People will be judged for their actions.

    OP I hope you don't lose your job. It was a stupid mistake and I am sure one that will never happen again. We all have done stupid things in our life oh wait a minute not everyone, just those who aren't perfect! But by the responses you have received there are aLot of perfect people on the forum. Best of luck to you!

    Okay, so what I want to know is....how charming/good-looking are you? 'cause like...you weren't dating this person before, I'm assuming. To get a co-worker you aren't in a relationship with to do it with you in the car in the parking lot after work...that must take something! That was the first thing I thought. xD

    Also, get a private room off of work property from now on. That's just inappropriate.

    OP: for someone who posted on a public forum, you are very defensive and rude. Munchhausen by Internet? You do bad things you get punished. That's how the world works, deal with it! I can hear my mother now "If your old enough to have sex, you need to be mature enough to deal with the consequences" Maybe your not? I do truly hope you can move on, find a good job (a decently priced motel) and think with your head...uhh, brain from now on.

    Hiddencat you have my mind going wild!
