    Hello all!
    I am in serious need of help!
    I was fired from my first job as an RN at a local hospital. I was put on a ventilator/respiratory floor even though I told them my interest was more surgical based...

    In early June, I had a patient get out of bed and the alarm never went off. She made it into the bathroom and then fell. I had only been working since mid-march and was very overwhelmed. While filling out the incident report, I got no help from my preceptor. She told me to submit it and I accidentally left some information out of it.

    When my supervisor came in that morning she asked me about it and I explained my side of the story. She called me later to say I had to have a meeting with her and HR to discuss discipline. I was fired..


    I made the mistake of telling my supervisor I had anxiety, trying to be upfront with her... Maybe I should have known that my anxiety would be too strong to be a nurse at all...
    She met with me once and mentioned switching floors, but she never got back to me...
    I was fired in June. I have been putting applications out everywhere and cannot find anything. I am debating getting out of the nursing field altogether at this point. I have even tried to find smaller jobs just to make some money (since I cant get unemployment), but nobody wants to hire me because I'm over qualified. I cant even get reception jobs, whether its in the healthcare field or not...
    I'm running out of money, options and desire to even live at this point.
    Does anybody have any ideas? I've tried networking with professors and former class mates to no avail...

    Thanks...
