    I got fired for forgetting to give a resident his meds. I was called in the office the next day and was asked to leave. Can I colllect unemployment? This place has a revolving door for staff and I should have seen the writing on the wall before I took the job. The ED also told me some things I said to other staff members like this is just a job for me and I feel like I was demoted after I was asked change my hours. She brought these things up to me when she fired me.

    Also I have only worked here for about 6 weeks should I disclose them on an application for employment? My thought is I need to be honest but I am not sure what I should say on the application.

    I work in an assisted living facility and I got fired for forgetting to give a resident his meds. I did not get a written warning I just got fired. Can I get unemployment if I got fired for this?

    Hi Fleeeba,
    I am in the MSN with a concentration in education at the University of Phoenix. I completed my BSN with them in April of this year. It took me 23 months. The MSN is about 18 months. It is alot of work but doable. It is expensive but I work full time and have a husband and 6 children so the convenience of online classes is worth it. I would highly recommend UOP.

    hi,
    Thanks for the reply. I also looked at Southern University but I think I will continuew with UOP for my MSN. I will be done in 10 weeks with my BSN. It is expenxive but it should take me about 15 months.

    I'll be glad to help. I did the BSN completion and MSN programs at UofP and enjoyed it. Let me know if I can help. Good luck.
    Thanks for the reply. I have also enjoyed the program and will be finished in April. I am going right on to do the masters but not sure which program to choose.

    I'm trying to decide my best options, and my two main concerns are financial (which I'll have to figure out for myself) and "portability" -- I guess that's the word for it.

    If I get my BSN, I definitely want to be able to get into grad school, especially if I don't get my MSN through them. I don't know how far I'll be able to go, but I'd like to have the option to go to any grad school -- up to PhD, if I have what it takes to make it that far.

    Have UOP grads had any trouble getting into traditional grad schools for Master's or Doctorate's -- or, were they treated no differently? I know that UOP is regionally accredited (perhaps their most important accreditation), but I also know that alot of traditional universities are biased against online education.

    I know that an MSN would help my career in the hospital, but what if I want to teach? What if I decide to be a nursing professor? Is that option out of reach with a UOP degree?


    I will be finishing my BSN online from UOP in April and am planning on continuing on for the MSN program. I have a concern as to how this will be looked at when applying for a job. Anyone have any experience with this
