I was recently terminated from my nursing job of 5 years. I made the mistake of making a comment about administration (not nursing, but front office). In the time I was there, I had never been written up, my employeer reviews were all good. There was never any complaint about my nursing care or how I performed my job duties.
Yes, I learned the hard way. From now on, I will keep my opinions to myself! The funny thing is that other nurses have been overheard stating the same thing but I was the one called on the carpet for it.
I have been sending out my resume and filling out job applications. The phone calls are starting to trickle in with offers for job interviews. I have saved an email directly from the HR person who fired me who stated they only verify dates of employment only.
How do I address this issue if it comes up? I have never ever been fired before, so I have no clue on how to handle this.
I am a nurse with 7 years experience and this was my 2nd nursing job.
