    I quit my first nursing job after 2 weeks

    You have not ruined your reputation. You did the right thing by getting out. It sounded like a toxic and dangerous environment. I would have quit too. You can leave that job off of your resume if you want. I left the one I quit off of my resume and h...

    New grad......did I make a mistake?

    I know how you feel. I am pretty much in the same boat as you. I am a new nurse working at a SNF and didn't get much training either. I am having bad anxiety lately about it. I have already quit one job at a SNF after two weeks and now I am working a...
