Thank you all for the support n replies.
Kooky Korky: I learned not to sign anything presented to me (like in this case) w/out inquiring of future impact. Also not to trust employers/ manager/DON, when they tell say "mistakes are allowed because thats how you learn, we've all made mistakes."
Update: I've been honest in interviews when asked 'why are you leaving your job?' I tell them the measures i've put in place to not repeat such mistakes etc etc. And still no offers. Should I give them another reason or stick with it? I need to get back to work, been a nurse for only 1yr+
And now, i've heard (rumors on the unit) that the NM reported me to BON for not following safety checks. i'm not the only one that has done this on the unit, plus it was my 1st time. Really worrying me. I don't want to loose my license i worked too hard for it.
what to do?
1st- getting a lawyer
I'm sorry you're going through this but I have to say your story is not sounding true.
If you actually did work for a person who would not only fire you but also think that your ONE MISTAKE is worthy of being reported to the BON, then get a lawyer and file some kind of complaint against this person who appears to be mentally unstable.
But, I believe there is more to this story and possibly your inability to realize that your practice is unsafe is part of the reason this manager is taking it to the BON.
