If you leave a position after a short period of time (which I would personally define as a year or less) and/or leave without a minimum of 2 weeks notice, you should expect to be on that facility or system's Do Not Rehire list. (Yes this is legit and legal.) It's kind of common sense. It costs a typical hospital $50,000-$80,000 to find, hire, and orient a nurse without prior experience. If he or she doesn't stick around long, this is a big money loser. Obviously, there are legitimate reasons for leaving after a short time, but don't expect that facility to take a chance on you again. Think carefully before leaving a job after a short time, and then do so only if truly feel this is the best decision for you. I hope that the OP made the best decision for him and that all has worked out ok.
