    Terminated the third week into my orientation

    I wish you could’ve been a fly on the all for me then. I don’t know what else to say but that I wasn’t unprofessional with my attitude

    My family gave me the advice to do so, I come from a long line of medical professionals. They felt it was in my best interest considering the circumstances I was being terminated instead of reprimanded or placed in another unit.

    I hate that it’s perceived that way but that wasn’t the intention. I can say most certainly that I only had initial interactions with this manager so I don’t know that it’s fair for anyone to ascertain that it was based off the way I have responded towards strangers on the internet vs. how I would respond to someone on a real personal level in my real life. Nobody that has responded is required to just as much as I’m not required to show thanks or respond at all myself. I feel as if I’ve taken quite a bit and it continues to be given. I value that people took their time to help but at this point, I’ve gotten a fair amount of valuable advice and a fair amount of keyboard warriors acting like they’re allowed to talk to me as if they know me personally. That’s all there is to it.

    I’ve become far less naive than I was before thanks to a lot of opinions, facts, advice, and common sense that everyone has shared with me. While I appreciate everyone taking their time to let me know what they think, I stand firm in the fact that only time will tell what happen. I’ve given a glimpse into a very personal situation and I’ve gotten some responses that have fed more into the situation than what happened and a lot of responses that truly helped me to get a better grasp of what’s real. I’ll update when something happens. I hope and pray this thread will help someone else who finds themselves in a similar situation. And yes the badge cut up - overkill. I think they wanted me to react? Not sure. I didn’t figure that was protocol but that was my first time being fired so I have nothing to back it up with.

    That’s your presumptive opinion, only time will tell though

    Screenshot what? You liked TriciaJ comment right above mine where she says the sentence that I quipped. I’m not sure what the focus is here.

    I honestly am not sure why it says from me but that was a sentence that I got from TriciaJ post above mine, I only took a quip of it and responded to it. If you read her entire response, she says that sentence in her remarks.

    I don’t know what you’re referring to, I’ve haven’t responded to or quoted myself, only others.

    I agree, I do not believe there is anything more to learn from this topic.

    I was looking for advice. Yes, I received some sympathy but I received some judgement as well as criticism. I tried to counteract some of the criticism with humor and it backfired. I didn’t know before posting to this forum that my post didn’t actually belong to me so therefore I couldn’t delete it once I got answers. I’d have to agree that I’ve learned all I can from it. Probably going to have to unfollow after this point. Thank you all! Wish you the best.

    Everyone. I appreciate all of your words. I am overwhelmed with how many people are willing to give me help and their advice and I can’t be more grateful during this time for that. That being said - I AM new. I do not believe my “termination” reflects my ability to be a great nurse for many reasons other than the blurbs you’ve gotten to share with me about my situation so that’s why I was questioning working at the same hospital, not just the same unit. It seems a little far fetched to me that I won’t be able to work within this hospital for 7 years due to sleeping over once as a new grad. I understand what I did was not kosher but I’m also not willing to let it set the tone for the rest of my career. I refuse to let this mishap define me despite my anxiety moving forward. I come from a long line of nurses and I know all about setting alarms and being on time and how to do it. It was an unfortunate mistake that I will never repeat again no matter how much advice I get. That’s the one thing I know without any advice. As far as texting the friend - I did it just to let them know I was on the way - common habit of ours while we were in school if one of us was running late. In retrospect, yes, 1000% I should have spoken to someone with authority. I am aware. I wasn’t expecting to be told I could reschedule. I didn’t understand the gravity of that at the time. Thank you guys for giving me your time and input. Some of my words have been taken a different way than I would’ve liked them to but eh, that’s the internet for you. I meant no harm. My humor gets in the way sometimes with people I don’t necessarily have to be serious with. I hope I can wrap a nice bow on this subject now and move on with my life LOL. Happy nursing guys! You’re all rockstars in my book.

    We’re buying our house from my father in law and I have children in the school system.

    And, you can also be misinterpreting my analysis of your situation as being mean. You might be more sensitive than usual right now because of the stress of what you're going through. That’s fair. And actually quite true, I am very sensitive right now. I have beat myself up for what I’ve done, I know nobody on this forum knows me personally but I am NEVER late. To anything. So to have done it so early in my young career is devastating to me. I have spent a week on and off crying. That being said, I do know what my mistakes were and I do know what I should’ve done differently. I wish I would have done everything different but those wishes are for last week and I needed advice on what to do this week, I was very naive to whether I would be able to get another position within this hospital based off the reason I was terminated, I was questioning if I should have been terminated at all to be honest, but I live in an “at will” state so it is what it is. My aunt actually works on another floor of this same hospital and advised me not to take the position as well as my neighbor who is in management said this manager is very difficult to work for. I decided against divulging that information because it didn’t matter at the end of the day, my mistakes were my own, not the manager. I made the decision to start at the hospital further away, gain some experience, and try again later on at the hospital of my choice. Or maybe I’ll love it at my new place! I have a long road ahead of me so plenty of opportunity to put this behind me as a stepping stone and grow from it

    I don’t know where you’re getting that it’s stopping me? Anxiety is what is making me hesitant is what I said. I never gave the impression that I wasn’t going to take the interviews. I’m new and was looking for answers. I’ve received way more than I bargained for.

    I have little interest in LTC, I’m more geared towards women’s health. I want to start my career however so I was asking if I should do that so I didn’t have to wait months for another new grad position. I have very high anxiety over my plunder for being late which is why I am hesitant to take the job that is over an hour away, I Don’t ever want to make that mistake again.
