    I just read that you resigned from your job. How's the job search going for you? I'm afraid no hospital will hire me because I was terminated in such a short period of time.

    I think its ridiculous to fire someone over one failed med pass. Absolutely ridiculous. Especially a new grad RN.

    As for the immediate concerns of the supervisor, I tend to agree that its more concerning that its klor con and insulin than just a failed med pass. If it was colace, I bet your manager wouldn't be pitching a fit over it, for goodness sake. I think you'll turn out just fine. don't worry too much about it.

    I feel for you because pcu can be hectic and you really cannot hold off taking patients, at least mine can't. We have to take pt's when we are swamped. To fire you for a late med. I think it's crazy. The money they just wasted to train you is gone. You were 2 weeks off orientation. You had up to 6 pm to give the med w/o being considered late. If you gave the med at 8pm you were 2 hours late. It was given late but still given.
