    Is New Jersey an at will state? I was let go from my first nursing job. i was told then I could reapply if I wished after a year. Nearly a year later and I am on the don't rehire list. It doesn't make sense to me.

    Just remember you are not !

    '"I feel chewed up and spit out" sounds like a song, poweroflove. Great description. We nurses need more protection of our jobs from unethical managers and 'mob mentalities' as well. Hang in there, friend. hug:
    I totally agree with you. I was told recently if we didn't write zeros under adding or substracting on the narc page we could get fired for not writing anything there. A nurse newer than me to the faclity told me this as a message from the DON that was sitting nearby. I was like why is she being so picky? I think what matters is to limit med errors, patient safety and make sure your count is accurate. Do your best work when you are at work. Do not consider yourself a failure. I did consider myself a failure when I first got terminated from a previous job. However that past experience has made me stronger. Small stupid things higher ups pick at don't bother me as much. I am more comfortable in my own skin.

    I completely hear what you're saying! This scrutiny on small details by higher ups is just pushing me farther and farther away from nursing. All of my patient care has been fine-it is just all this documentation that has scalded me like a lobster in hot water. "if it wasn't documented, it wasn't done" is true, but when you're trying to finish and have people breathing down your neck to "chart faster, finish faster, hurry the hell up, you're costing the business OT money"-so what do you do?! My belief is always patient care first, paperwork second as I always thought that was the priority??? Guess not, for it is the insurance companies that dictate how care is given, things charted 5 times in different places and "document, document, document"!

    Yes, like most states NJ is an at will state. The only exceptions are union shop employers where some of the rehire policies are determined by the union contact. I've heard some employers keep the "do not rehire" list active for decades, even for unrelated positions (i.e. terminated as a CNA still ineligible for rehire as an RN 10 years later).

    Thanks for the information. I was troubled by this news as I didn't hurt anyone they just thought I wasn't handling things good enough nor doing anything right. Although I knew I did the best I could at that time. I did feel like a failure that day when they let me go. Today is a different story. I am in long term care for several months now. There are days I want to scream but others when I feel good because I am a nurse and i can still help people
