over something I am told is not going to go on my license.
I was also told that my employer (previous) can only tell them the dates
I worked there - not that I was terminated or why - or if I was good or bad,
How do I handle this in looking for future employment? Does that go on my
resume as experience? Since I am a BRAND NEW nurse (just got my license in
Feb.) - does this bode well for me? I am not sure how to handle this situation -
I want to be honest - and I want to focus on moving forward from it - but
I am not sure if I have a future as a nurse now. This is entirely new to me.
I cannot discuss why I was fired - I can say that when I found out I had
done something I felt was wrong I went straight to my supervisor who told me
it was a "learning experience" and to pay closer attention to it in the future. I also
told the next shift supervisor - who said she would have to take actions to correct it
but also said "everyone makes mistakes - and you will know this for the future to pay
closer attention to lab values". It caught me off guard because this incident happened
over a week ago before I was terminated. I am willing to take responsibility - but
I have talked to several other friends who are nurses, one of whom made the same
mistake I did in the same type of enviornment and was not terminated or written up.
With that said - I still need to figure out if my nursing career is over - and if it is not
I need to figure out how to get my foot in the door of another job opportunity. Suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for your compassion and support. I feel completely devistated by this but I need to move forward.
