    I had a similar experience at my first job and then moved up to an ICU job.

    What I would recommend is keeping that to yourself unless your time and experience is brought up in an exit interview or something similar. Also, don't talk too much about it at your new job. These things always have a way of working themselves out (about 6 months after I left the NM was fired, several of the charge nurses had stepped down or left, and about half of the staff was different).

    Be positive and excited about the new experiences coming your way.

    Thank you, this is really bring me up I almost forgot this new thing happening to me juz coz Im being consumed by my anger

    OP, you should absolutely finish your shifts. As MANY posters have stated, you will be put on the "not for rehire" list. You don't want to do that to yourself.

    Dude, you can't let miserable people affect you so much! If I told you here what you should say to them, I would be kicked off of this forum, so just use your imagination. Miserable people thrive on misery and will do anything to make happy people miserable too. I know that it hurts to hear negative things about yourself, but remember that YOU ARE THE WINNER in this scenario. They probably don't have the guts to pick up and move on, because it takes a strong and brave person to bring about change for themselves in order to become successful. YOU DID IT!!! Just keep that in your mind when you are finishing your shifts. Only a few more shifts until you are out of the snake pit!

    By not completing your notice as expected, you are asking the soon to be ex-employer to list you as a "do not rehire" ex-employee, so do not be surprised when this happens.

    If I read all of this correctly.. this is your first job.....Work the NOTICE,, every day of it.. If you called in call NM and HR and offer to work additional days. Do Not get a NO Rehire on your first job. Bite your tongue, count the minutes but show up.. if you have to offer to do additional days if you have actually called off and they decline, make sure to document that in a letter to HR for your file..keep your own copy.
    I know you already have another job,, that's great but don't burn this bridge.

    This is what I was going to say, also. A few more days in a bad situation won't kill you. Leaving after just six months is bad enough without also failing to complete your two weeks' notice. You will definitely be tagged "do not rehire" (if you aren't already), and will always get a bad reference from this organization. You never know how that's going to come back to bite you in the future (and these things often do).

    Do the right thing, take the high road, don't burn your bridges, etc., etc., etc. You can never go wrong doing that.

    Best wishes!
    Thats scary that you can be tagged "do not hire". What if your boss was a troublemaker . She could really do you harm.

    Yep and it happens and sometimes It might be years before you realize it...can never prove it but some bosses go out of their ways to blackball a nurse for the simplest things too.

    Have you been calling out already? Do you and your ex-manager see eye to eye to begin with? If not then I don't believe that you have something to lose in this scenario. You were just there for three months. Do you think that even if you finished the whole week she will give you a stellar recommendation and will hire you back? I don't advocate for folks to do this. But in your scenario, if you've got nothing to lose, why still bother coming in? Think of it this way, if they are mean and nasty to you, they can sabotage you on your last week. They can write you up and even find reasons to report you to the BON so you will be in trouble. If it's not worth it, just chill, learn from the experience, move forward, and be happy for the next job!

    Hi

    That is one of the reason I why I didn't want to finish my last week because some of the CNA's that's been there working in that unit for awhile told me to call out sick and not come anymore and the way they said it as if to warn me that something not good is going to happen. These CNA's have seen how I've been bullied around always giving me the heaviest cases of pts and always me giving me the most load of pt's compare to the nurses that have been there. They are ones who told me they understand why I was leaving and that compare to other new nurses I actually lasted the most there, coz some left juz after 2 weeks. I mean there are one or two who are applauded me of leaving bcoz they saw how unfair I was getting treated and how the NM is not doing anything about it. I will never go back to that hospital after all the hell I was put through. The only thing that kept me from staying as long as I can was the learning I was getting from the floor and hearing pts thanking me for the care I provided and that they know I will succeed bcoz they feel that its in my heart and they can see I truly love what I'm doing.

    Thank you for ur response

    If you ever plan on looking for another job (which I'm guessing you will in the next 40 years or so) you will have to put the NM down as your supervisor. Don't **** her off before you go by calling out. You can do this. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!!

    I think it shows professionalism and maturity to stand by your word.
