THank you everyone for the support and replies, I really appreciate it.
Because I signed an at will contract, they were able to terminate me at any time, vice versa if i wanted to quit/resign.
Her reason saying the diabetic should have not been picked over the head injury was because he was not crashing.
But the diabetic who was 7 years old, his blood sugar was well over 300 and his mother's instructions were to give him water and call immediately for further instructions. so as i called, the other student with the scratch on his forhead thought i was done with him and left, i didn't get to catch his name.
i spoke to the parents of the boy with the scratch on his head, and apparently when he went back out on the yard (mind you this was all afterschool), he got hurt again, and bumped his head playing basketball, i was not aware, and so he went home with a bump on his forehead. Of course had i known, i would of called his parents... i ended up finding out about this when i was already going home, passed the time i was supposed to leave (which they did not pay me for).. and said i'd call them first thing in the morning.
I did call the mother first thing in the morning and explained the situation, told her i was sorry that had happened to her son, and that it was my fault and that it would never happen again. She was very nice, she did say she was upset, but she was very thankful i had at least called to follow-up.
immediately after that i had to do the whole school population thing (which wasn't my duty in the beginning).. and as i was going to the front office to do it, the principal fired me on the spot. told me to collect my things and pick up my check..
even rubbed it in my face that "I know you really needed this job because you have a newborn, but i can't keep you".
i'm just really sad because of it, i've never been fired in my life, and especially over something so small, well it may not have been small to them because it was a child, but the way she fired me was just SO harsh.
i will look into nursing homes, but it's been awhile since i've worked.. this was the first time i worked since my pregnancy. during my pregnancy i had IUGR which i was on bedrest for 2 months in the hospital and 1 month at home. then when my daughter was born, i tore my muscle (i had a c-section).. and couldn't do anything for a long time..
do i have to put this school nurse position on my resume? i mean i don't know what to say if they ask why i was fired.. my old boss said i was negligent? but
On top of all this my daughter is sick with bronchitis and she's on a couple of drugs including steroids for her lungs (im guessing lol) it's been crazy.. so im thinking last resort is to go into registry.
im just like ahh they want me to take a test! mind you i haven't done any type of school work for years lol. any tips on what to study lol.
