Fired status changed to Resignation / No Rehire Status

I was fired but contested it and allowed to resign but given a no rehire status.  It was not patient related at all.  I had worked there for a decade with a perfect record.  I have been out a few years and was going to make an attempt to get back in.  I was out for so long actually to care for family and completely unrelated to what happened at work.  

The CON told me everything including my 'no rehire status" was confidential.  

I know I have to be completely honest if asked why I left the hospital or asked about rehire status.  My questions are first anyones opinion considering how long I have been out what my best route to get back in would be?  I have multiple people who would give me good references.  Also, does the fact I was allowed to resign instead of being fired say something more positive about how the employer views me?  Would the no rehire status alone put me out of ever getting a job in nursing again?  I have 22 years consistent working experience.  I have never been in this position before and even though it has been a while it still has an effect on me. 

I wish I could shake this feeling of being a failure and embarrassed about it.  If I could keep from having to bring it up I would but know I won't get out of it.

I would love anyone willing to give some advice and input.  Thanks!

Stop focusing on the circumstances of your previous departure. Doggedly apply to new positions and you will eventually be hired just like anyone who does not give up on finding a new job.

Not every job works out. With 22 years of experience and good references, I can't image that someone wouldn't give you a chance. I would avoid over-explaining your prior resignation.

Heads up though, it's not a great time to look for work right now in a lot of markets, so don't be discouraged by a lack of immediate results.

Thanks for the input.  I am not looking right now because my family life is still not where I can make any moves.  I was interested in what people might say since pandemic.  

For any who may have read this post who might have been in similar position I wanted to say those feelings of failure did fade away.

My choice would be to not go back jnto nursing.  Not for what happened to me but the burn out I experienced and could not seei myself working until I retired in it.  Just a toxic environment.  

However, never say never considering you never know what life will throw at you and I might be in a position of really needing to get back in it.  I will just know full well what I am getting myself back into.  

I hope if anything good comes out of this pandemic it will be a change in the pervasive toxic working environments nurses deal with so often.  Sadly, I doubt it.

When good and unemployed one time I found I could not get a job until I went back to applying for nursing work. The interviews would get very awkward when they dug in on trying to find out why anyone with a nursing license would look for anything else in general, and why I, with a nursing license, would look for anything else, specifically. No one would hire me for those jobs.

Thanks for the input and I could see where that would be the case.  I just think it’s going to be hard either way for me.  I am going to have that awkward conversation explaining my situation.  However, if it comes to having to get back in it then all I can do is be honest and try.  If I don”t get hired then at least I tried and will have to figure something else out.  What that would be in this economy now or in forseeable future is scary.  It is for a lot of people right now and I am just thankful that I have roof over my head and food stocked up.   I feel so sorry for people that are in long lines for food right now because they are out of work.  Very sad.
