    With all the publicity involved with this unique resignation, may be difficult to obtain another nursing position for this new RN.
    Don't let your frustration with workplace lead you to career suicide via unprofessional behavior.

    God forbid that a nurse should ask for 10 minutes to regroup at a moment when she is overwhelmed.The fact that this is even a question demonstrates just how powerless we can become on tbe workplace.There is nothing wrong with taking ten minutess to get organized as long as no harm came to any patient.

    Quote from esrun77
    Exactly--how do I respond professionally to such unprofessional conduct by a colleague? Ignore it? I mean, what if continues?
    What if it was the RN who felt that you were not a good fit for the unit or appropriate for the job? You are projecting and making assumptions about your classmate when you have no objective reason to know so. Did the manager say, "based upon Lisa's impressions of you at the peer interview we will not be offering you the job"? I doubt it.
    There is exactly zero indication of "such unprofessional conduct" in your description of events.

    Be professional

    Don't assume the paranoid victim role.

    Move on in search of the next opportunity

    I wonder if a cake actually "counts" as official notice (as compared to an e-mail or snail mail ...) And I hope it was chocolate!

    (And, according to the link, she only worked there seven months -- I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that, someone who quits after seven months with such a flamboyant "resignation" ("I quit" with three exclamation points?), they're probably glad (and lucky) to be rid of her.)
