But will that show up that someone tried to report me or complain against me?

OP my dear, please quit stressing. She can report you all she wants but you aren't endangering residents to quit. If there is an RN to call for questions, she can come in and take the shift that you were supposed to. The ED can come in. Whatever, its not your problem, you are allowed to quit. Don't let this woman scare you, bully you, whatever. If it makes you feel better, contact a lawyer for a consultation. It probably won't cost anything. Then you can tell her you've contacted a lawyer and she can direct ANY further BS to the lawyer. I bet you a dollar you'll never hear from her again and she will not contact that lawyer. If she had the gall to contact the BON whoever takes the call will probably laugh when they get off the phone with her. And don't stress over your background check either. However, I would be very careful to look at applications as I have had several to require I list all employment I ever held as a nurse. This job was employment. You can explain the situation in an interview if necessary. Hon, I know its scary when someone gives you grief like that but you have the upper hand and you are getting really worked up over nothing! Your license is fine.

I was reported for alleged neglect and was hired while the investigation was underway. I had no idea I had even been reported. I was exonerated of the false charges.

cb rn-thanks for your reply. I have already talked to a lawyer. I told the ED when I spoke on the phone with her that I was going to seek legal advice already.

AlmostabubbieRN-if you were under investigation how come you didn't know it and how did you end up finding out? Did your future employer know you were under investigation?

Have your Doctor put you on a Medical Leave.

That should be easy to do since you're pregnant.:cool:

Yes, do this. Then have an attorney send her a letter telling her to cease and desist. That should scare the harassing behavior out of her, or at least give her something to think about.

I don't think getting a doctor's excuse will do any good now. I've already quit and I didn't hear from them anymore since I called them back yest. to say that my letter is valid and that I'm no longer an employee.

Sounds like maybe they got the message. Relax, take a deep breath, and move on.

I have no idea if they knew. I only found out when I got a letter from the BON saying that there was no evidence to support the allegations.

So they never even sent you a letter to tell you there were allegations and they were investigating you?

They claim they don't tell you because they don't want the nurse being investigated to start tampering with the case by calling coworkers etc.. I don't believe that though. Once you hear anything your guilt/innocence has been decided. I wouldn't worry.
