Thank you for all the response. I had a meeting with the chief nursing officer and she tried to put all the blame on me and was not owning up to any fault at all on the preceptors. I ended up resigning respectfully and told them the unit was not a good fit for me. They claimed to delay processing my resignation for a few weeks. I am still trying to find another job in the system but it isn't easy with it being few jobs right now. I will keep looking though and hope this doesn't bring me down. Thank you everyone.

If your (likely) soon-to-be ex-employer is smart, they would disclose when you worked for them, and that's it; anymore would put them at risk of being sued for defamation.

 

HR can say anything as long as it's TRUE and can be proven- the adage that anything else can resultin a lawsuit is a myth. Also, nursing is a small world, and word gets around. I would get out of there quick, list the job, and just explain that it wasnt a good fit. Lies catch up to us when we least expect it

Yes, another urban legend that just won't die a peaceful death.  And, if the individual providing the information states it as her or his opinion, there is generally little to nothing that can be done about that as well.

Consider yourself lucky you dodge a bullet. I would run from this place. You know your worth!

In all honesty, I would go ahead and assume that you won't be able to get a job within this system any time in the near future. Unfortunately, you've made a bad impression on your preceptors, the CNO, and presumably your manager. Even if you were considered for another job in the system, it's very likely that the new managers would reach out to the former manager for an honest reference.

At this point, you need to cut your losses and start applying elsewhere, even if it means relocating (if you're able) or applying outside of the hospital setting.
