I have to say, I shot myself in the foot.
I was recently fired. For writing another nurse's initials on a MAR. I did it on impulse, to plug the hole; I had nothing to personally gain from this action, and everything to lose.
I've had very few nursing jobs since graduating in 2009
First off, I'm not trying to be critical, but you leave me little choice with your post. You say you've had very few
nursing jobs in the past three years, but I'm sorry, I count at least 4 if not 5. AND, now if you are fortunate enough to land another... You are not doing yourself any favors, graduating in 09, I presume you are relatively young, and just starting out your career. Here you've already had 4-5 different positions in 3 years, what do you think that tells future employers? Especially when you tell them why you left or were forced to leave. It doesn't speak well of you as a Nurse, even with the best of intentions, as you can't tell anyone that on job interviews, they would be afraid that you would report them as well for the slightest infraction. They would be afraid to take a chance with you. You are right, I'm afraid you have shot yourself in the foot, and I'm afraid you are going to have to hobble around for a bit, until it heals. You may have to take whatever you can get for a while and work your butt off and build some stability, that means stay put for a while if you didn't understand. Even if you don't like the job. So when you go out applying for work, you need to try and find the best fit you can because you're going to need to stay there for a good while to make up for all of the jumping around you've already done. Who knows, if you are very lucky, you might find a great job that you love. The one that makes getting out of bed worthwhile. That is after all, what life and nursing is all about.
