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
