I got fired today, how will that affect my chances? - page 5

I got fired for a dumb thing I did breaking a hospital policy per HR, not my nursing performance or patient care related. How will that affect me getting another job?... Read More

    I don't know about any other states but my state can yank your license for 90 days on the basis of professionalism or conduct unbecoming of a nurse and that is just first offense

    Be sincere and let them know you have learned your lesson big time and grown up and will never cross or even come close to that line again.

    Someone will understand.

    Everyone makes mistakes.

    Here's a valid reason that someone might choose not to hire you: Hooking up can lead to jealousy and all kinds of destructive behavior that have no place in the workplace. Honestly, unless you could demonstrate that you were a better nurse than the other candidates, I'd give you a pass in favor of someone who's not looking to boink their coworkers.

    No matter where you find yourself in your next job, keep this adage in mind: "Don't dip your pen in the company inkwell."

    Your behaviour demonstrates to many of us extremely poor judgement, which, although we have all made mistakes, in this economy will not work in your favour. The desire was so great that you couldn't wait to leave the property. Really? So while I do agree with not divulging a whole play by play, you should be honest and show remorse. Otherwise, they have plenty of candidates to choose. Relocation is probably a great idea.

    You can overcome this. Some forget what it is too be young, dumb, and hormonal.

    I am still wondering what was on your termination paperwork as far as the verbage they used. It may help with the explanation you offer if/when asked.

    I don't think things are THAT bleak for you that you need to resort to peddling French fries for the rest of your life. This can be overcome...not necessarily right away though.

    Unfortunately, people/employers are going to draw their own conclusions for right or wrong. Hence why many of us are suggesting that you try job searching in a new area, so reputation and word-of-mouth is less likely to influence your job search.

    And no one says that relocation is forever...memories do grow dim and a few years from now most people probably won't remember/know/even care about anything you did in a parking lot. But for now, you're behind the 8-ball whether you like it or not :/

    Ok, can I just throw something out there? Who the heck is lurking in the parking lot looking for coworkers and what they may or may not be doing in cars? SERIOUSLY? If you were on the clock, and not on lunch/break than lesson learned and you can always speak of your strengths in a future interview. However, I think it is kinda creepy that someone would care enough for someone to lose their job over it. Poor choice, maybe. None of anyone's business how you spend your lunch hour? Definetely. Unless you were all over each other in the lunch room or something....story for another thread.

    If you were only making out, they should NOT have fired you, IMO. A reprimand should have sufficed.

    If that is all you are guilty of, I wouldn't give this another thought.

    Wow.. Nurseadam was just confessing, looking for support and asking a question. Look at the bullying going on in here by 1/2 of the people replying. And most of these bullying post come from people whom claim they like helping others, please.

    Nurseadam, I am sorry this happened to you. I hope this doesn't hurt your chance's of find another job. What I would do is just put for work history dates doen and when you get to the part of why you left, just put down will explain upon request. Then once you get your interview be 100% open and honest without going into graphic details. Legally an ex-employer can not shame you, but everyone knows thats not always what happens.

    Either way I wish you the best of luck on your journey. Don't give up and just learn from your experience. PM me if you need to talk.
