I am new to this site, not new to nursing. I have been a nurse for over 17 years. I am putting this out here looking for advice from others that I do not know.,but are in the nursing,medical field. I have my close friends and nurses that I talk with, but needing a neutral opinion. Over 10 years ago i was hired as a specialty nurse right out of school. Worked for 8 years and then lost my job to bad behavior, with compensation. The background to this is the manager that hired me had a medical issue 6 years into my employment. They had to leave. This position was never posted, they just asked one of my co workers to take over. This particular co worker I knew since grade school. This new manager hired new nurses and sorta formed their own league and i felt ousted. I was the one with the most seniority and was treated poorly. Not saying I didn't have some attitude so to speak.( How do you think I felt never being offered the job) , but I got along and worked with everyone, but we all know how "clicks" work. Next thing i know I was pulled into the CNO office and told i could get a slap on the wrist or ask for my resignation. I am never able to work for that company again, so I'm told. Fast forward 6 years later I am in a Director position. 2 years into the position management changes and there is now a husband wife managers. Needless to say the wife did like me and i lost that job too. So two job losses. A bit devastating. Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism. I would greatly appreciate it.
