    You got that right! I was in a broken place then and ready to crumble at what anyone said but not anymore. Thanks for being awesome! Happy nursing to all nurses but especially to those of us that fell down, got dragged, and came out better on the other side

    Terminated the third week into my orientation

    I listened without even seeing your words. I took a much needed break from the keyboard warriors and it made me realize to stick to advice from my mama when I need a reaming rather than the internet There were a few comments on here that I will truly take to heart and yours is one of them. Thank you but dang I’m so glad I took that break. To any other fresh grads that come across this post one day and find yourself in a similar situation (which I hope you never do) please know that regardless of what ANYONE says, you will find a new start and a “better fit.” You’re a nurse. We got this I ended up finding a position with the hospital that was further away but they have a smaller hospital that is about the same distance as I was driving before. I created a great rapport with my manager immediately, my work family is amazing, and I couldn’t have asked for a better learning environment to be in during these times. I’m so happy now that things turned out the way they did, it was just meant to be. Best wishes to you all!

    And yes before anyone says anything, I am doing some introspective reaching on how I’m taking the words of others and that their intent was not malicious.

    I never expected to go through more emotional turmoil asking for advice from my more seasoned peers. I apologize for how anyone took anything I said. I really just want to put this behind me now.

    It’s the same people over and over. I did not create a negative rapport with anyone. I did not speak to a professional co-worker/higher-up in a negative, condescending, or obnoxious manner. I was professional and polite in all aspects with the exception on what is written on this post. I have no idea why the lady cut up my badge, I was not rude when they fired me, I simply asked if I was allowed to record the termination or if I could have a witness present and they told me I could have someone on the phone but not record and asked if I was deemed ineligible for rehire. I explained to her how deeply sorry I was for what I had done, how embarrassed I was, and that I hoped I could take the experience as a learning tool to be the best I could. Now. Again. I am NOT required to speak to STRANGERS on the internet in any sort of manner. I feel as if I have been pretty nice compared to how defensive the real world is. Not many people like to sit back and take false accusations from anyone. It’s just getting to the point of ridiculous. I asked for advice. This is beyond the point of advice. When does it stop?

    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. Thank you all! Wish you the best.

    I’ve learned that the hard way.

    I have shown much gratitude. This is getting out of hand however. I have not been disrespectful but people are honing in on a “high school” sounding response where as I would never tell someone what they sounded like based off their age or what they should do with their panties so let’s just all move along if that’s possible. Please. My email pings would greatly appreciate it

    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.

    OK...well. My comment was meant in good humor considering how many comments I’ve had pertaining to the same nature.

    I can’t tell if you’re messing with me or not LOL as I literally just stated in the comment after how much I appreciated everyone
