I am so sorry that this happend to you. Just for future reference, be sure that you document vitals before giving meds. And were the lab values what they were supposed to be for giving the mg? I would even do a note that says "lab's verified, medication given IV per MD order". Use the "nurses note" section of the EMAR to document anything that there's not a box for. And always wait for the preceptor--who was perhaps covering her butt as she was supposed to be with you, and if she was not, how does she know what you did for patient identifiers? In any event, you can not go back and change the past, only go on from here. But I would not lie about anything. If nothing else, you did get some clinical experience. And I would make note of what you did learn, keep it positive, and say that during the orientation period it was clear that the floor was not a good fit--even to say that "I was put in a position where another new graduate was my preceptor, and the situation was not ideal for the patient or my practice" People are let go for a variety of reasons--that sometimes have to do with staffing, a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is a matter of one not getting unemployment easily if it is a "patient safety" issue. Do not let it be reflective of your nursing practice, you may or may not have made some errors in judgement, but as a new nurse (heck even us old bats) we all do what we can in the safest most effective manner possible with the tools and information we have on hand. I would even make an appointment with HR to have an exit interview, and be crystal clear with the fact that you are disputing the reasons for the termination, however, given the preceptor that was also a new grad, the fact that the information used was pertaining to practices that the preceptor was not actively observing, that senior nurses were giving conflicting information on best practice, that patient care was and is your priority and finally ask if you can give written response to any negatives in your personnell file. As noted above, you may not have to list on your resume this orientation period. But if there were some positives I would use them to your advantage. Best of luck to you!
