Voluntary resignation or discharge

  1. I have a question for y'all out there. I had a position in the ICU as a new grad. After so many weeks of training...my nurse manager told me that he didn't think that I was learning it all quick enough and he would have to let me go. He kept me as an employee for a few days later to allow me to try to find another position in the healthsystem that wasn't as intense as the ICU. After a while, he had to terminate the hospital's relationship with me. Would y'all consider that a discharge from my job or can it be considered a voluntary resignation? I didn't tell him I was quitting my job.

    You were fired.

    Don't tell prospective employers unless they ask. Just say that it wasn't a good fit, that you found it too much as a brand new nurse.
