I was terminated coz I told my boss that I rather go home that scrub the surgical cases because I am not adequately trained and oriented to the case and making me uncomfortable and concern of patient safety
He suspended for insubordination pending investigation. Now the human resources decided to terminate on grounds of insubordination help??!!
Can I still find and hired for a operating room nurse job? What will I put in my application as reason of leaving,? Will I answere yes in the application that I was terminated????? Need help and input. Thank you

No, I don’t work in HR. However, I am capable of reading. There has been at least one discussion on this board (Employers Refusing To Hire Unemployed - Nursing News) regarding employers not hiring the unemployed. Additionally, there are numerous threads on this board discussing unemployment in nursing (The Unemployed RN - Retired Nurses / Inactive Nurses, *UNEMPLOYED NURSES* - Nursing Job Search Assistance), as well as at least one regarding an experienced nurse (Nurses unemployed what is happening out there??? - General Nursing Discussion).
What is this ignorant comment based on? Have you worked for HR?

This is what I based this “ignorant comment” on. The OP did not lose her or his job due to downsizing or some other benign reason. He or she told their supervisor that they would rather go home than perform an assigned task. Big difference, and one that any prospective employer is likely to give heavy consideration to.

This is not true. A prospective employer has the right to ask whether you have ever been terminated from a position. Furthermore, when asked, there is no limitation on what a previous employer says about you as long as the information is factual. It is common, however, for many employers to choose to only give dates of employment and rehire eligibility.
I don't believe anyone can ask if you have been terminated. You can still enter the information for the time you worked and if asked, be honest that you stood your ground. When asked for referenced, a previous employer cannot say why you no longer work there. They can however state if they would rehire you.
