On May 21st, the assistant DON called me and told me that on Monday 25th I am going to do everything by myself, she told that they wanted to speed me up a little bit. My story I am a new nurse, I've found a job on April the 16th, working M-F 7-3 shift. On May 5th I took one week off my job for court duty, I came back to work on Monday 11th. Okay, after the ADON, talked to me on 21st of May, she called me to her office at the end of the shift on Friday May 22nd, she told me that the DON and her want to talk to me after I am done with whatever I was doing. I went to them and ADON told "I am afraid, you are not going to make it, because you work to slow and you are asking a lot of questions about the meds" the questions about the meds was reported to them by a nurse that precept me for one day. I was in shock, I am a single mother and after passing my board, it took me almost 4 months to find a job. I got fired because after about one month from my job, I finished after about 15 to 30 minutes after my time. The weird part is that day I've finished at 2:30 pm. I have to mention that I was doing treatment for about 59 patients that they asked me to do without getting any training. I did because where I am living it's very hard to find a job. I took my time to read everything very good to avoid mistake, because I didn't want to lose my license. Now I am back where I was, I have to start looking for a new job. It is wrong to ask question about a med that I am not familiar with before I give it to the patient? I was asking that nurse the instruction, how to give it to the patient because I wasn't familiar with that med. I know my story is too long; please I need some advice, what impact that being fired will have on my next job search
Thank you any advice will be appreciated.
