You absolutely have to do what is best for you! You won't do your family any good if you get depressed or manic. I am so sorry you are going through this.

Exactly. I've been there & when I am extremely manic or depressed, it's terrible. I'd rather be a GREAT stay at home mother who is in control of her mental health than so depressed I can't bathe, eat or dress myself or on the other end of the spectrum.

I just want to say thank you to everyone for the heartfelt comments & PMs. It really means a lot. I am not feeling as depressed today as I thought I would. I currently looking for jobs & started studying again for the TEAS test. :)

OC, I don't know the details of your situation but is it something you can clear up before you go on for your RN? I'd hate for you to put the work in only to have the same thing happen again.

I want to update my situation. I never heard from (edit) & I won't. I was contacted by my former agency (then surprised on the line by my boss, ugh). They told me that (edit) wanted me to stop contacting them. What?! So my agency wasn't giving me any clarification but I'm not allowed to contact THEM?!

What my (horrible) agency told me was that in lieu of being fired, I was able to resign (d/t unprofessional conduct, which pisses me off. Ugh!) Then when I asked if I could get any other work outside of (edit), they said no because I lied on my application. Yeah, it was a white lie but I also didn't know I was blacklisted. Every time I applied my application went through! Do I think I would've accepted the position if I knew I was blacklisted?!? Lol.

So they didn't fire me, my old boss said she would talk to QC & let me know. I have been applying to jobs & I also applied for unemployment. Hahaha.

Well if you "resigned" then you can't get unemployment. You can still try though. That's why they give you a choice... if you chose to resign then you can't get unemployment and they know it.

No, I didn't resign from this current job. That was from the first time I worked there. Sorry if my previous post didn't make any sense.

Let me try try to rephrase it. I resigned the first time instead of being fired. When I asked my agency if they had any work they said they didn't want to give me any but they would look into it.

Honestly, I do not think the agency will give you any more jobs. Imo...it may be best to resign from the agency before they get the chance to terminate you. As far as unemployment goes...they could defend the termination by saying "well, she omitted "x" job on her application..."

I know they won't, they pretty much said so. But I haven't been officially terminated, that's the thing, I'm still an employee. If I resign, then I can't apply for unemployment & they haven't fired me. That's why I applied, because I haven't resigned & they didn't fire me. So while they're doing whatever they're doing, I'm gonna sit over here & apply for benefits (while I look for jobs).

The thing is, (imo) termination is not something one should want in terms of nursing. Suppose you were to get terminated - If a job application were to ask along the line "Have you ever been terminated?," you would have to answer "yes" and may have to explain. Though illegal in some states, a potential employer may ask the previous employer what happened.

Oh I know. But if I can qualify for unemployment & make some kind of money while I'm in-between jobs, it's worth it. If I can keep them on the hook long enough to pull benefits, that works for me. If not, then I will put in my resignation.
