HI everyone! I need everyone's advise and/or opinion.
I just gave in my 2 weeks notice, I am in my last week and decided to just call out on my last few days. The reason being is that some of the nurses on the floor are not even speaking to me anymore and I am hearing so many things behind my back. Many negative things. I thought I was leaving in a positive note. When they asked why I was leaving I just say as much I love the unit(which is not the truth and really Major cause to my leaving), I just couldn't pass up this opportunity being offered to work in a Step down ICU. I worked in a Med-Surge fl this was my first nursing job after grad., I am forever thankful to what I've gained during my time there but honestly I was miserable from the start not only their orientation to new grads was not good but the management was really horrible and the staff not very receptive to new grads, there's no team work everyone is pretty much doing their own thing. I cried almost eveyday in my first 3 weeks there.
So when this offer came up and met the nurse manager who I seriously feel very sincere when she told me how supportive the staff in her floor are and team work is a big thing in her unit that is why there is unity. Also she was explaining to me how she was willing to help me reach my potential as a nurse as long as I work hard so it was hard not to take it.
Now my question is should I still talk to my ex Nurse Manager and explain to her why I couldn't finish my last week was because of the many negative things I was hearing from some of the nurses about me and how they are pretty much just ignoring me on the floor?
Thank you all!

4 weeks is not a very long orientation at all. but i read a post from you in nov of 2010 saying you were 2 weeks into orientation. sorry that was not a great fit for you , hope the next one is better.
No I started there Oct 2010. That was a typo I meant to say 3 week on that post. Thank you I am hoping also
