Been in nursing for five years and this is my first time being fired. I got fired from a LTC facility.I had to reschedule my class room orientation due to having an exam and had one call out for on the floor orientation due to being sick. I never got the chance to even orient on the floor. I told them during the interview that I'm a nursing student and everyone was okay with that, well so I thought. I want to start applying for other jobs but how do I explain this termination. So heart-broken.
- Oh btw the way they fired me was very disappointing. I was supposed to begin on the floor orientation today at 3pm, I arrived early at 2pm. I went to HR and she told me to wait for the DON to see what floor I would be orienting one. The DON made me sit and wait for her in an office for an hour before telling me I was fired. The HR manager had NO idea the DON plan on firing me. The HR manager even accepted my voided check for Direct Deposit. After I got fired, the HR director called me into her office and gave me a hug. She stated that she was so sorry and had no idea. She also stated that I could use her as a reference. I'm so in shock. As I was being fired I went into a state of shock. Right now I could of thought of so many questions I could of asked and should have pleaded with them to keep me on board. Wow.
