Wrote me up for ridiculous hear-say lies from a few of her new hire, incompetent, lazy, loud mouth friends.
    Now I have these bad marks on my otherwise spotless record. My manager was recently fired and my complaints along with the Dr.'s and several other nurse's was the catalyst.
    I was recently offered a position, which involved a promotion and raise with
    the same healthcare organization. When I called a few days later to check the status of my transfer I was told "Sorry the position isn't available".
    I've got a feeling that the person who offered the job took a look at my file and backed out. What can I possibly do to recover my reputation? Should I question this manager to be sure of my suspicions? I am more than qualified for the new job. And I know it is still available.

    Update on my problem....
    The manager who offered me the job was relieved of her duties. Tansfered to the Med-surg floor. I then spoke with the district manager who knew my old boss and said my record shouldn't be a problem. But she wanted me to work a few shifts to try the place out. So that's what I'm doing. I worked my first shift last week. It was great. I have 3 more scheduled. Then I will approach her again. I did look at my file and anyone with any managerial savvy will see through the write ups.
    Thanks for your support.
