  1. Eh.... it happens to all of us. Don't let it get to you. You know now, and I can guarantee that you won't make the same mistake again! Kudos to your instructor for using a teachable moment wisely. Best of luck to you! You will be an awesome nurse!
  2. I am so over all the paper writing, article reading, medatrax charting, and all of it! There is not enough hours in one day to do all required of us, yet somehow, we have all found a way to continue plodding along... day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute. All this in addition to clinical hours.... sigh. Once this is done, I had better be a damn good NP for my patients! Haha! Well, off I go to take a test, finish a paper and write two more today... :)

    New Nurse anxiety on the job

    Give yourself time to settle into a routine! It will all become so much easier as time goes on... Best of luck to you! :)
  4. I do not believe you will lose your license over this, but in the future, document, document, document!!!!! Note that "So and So" RN was informed and at what time, note that you requested of supervisor "Whatshername" information and what to do and the time. Note that you called Dr "whoever" and his response and the time. Cover your a**, cause no one else will do it for you!

    Bullying online is NOT harmless

    Thank you for your insight. I also have seen the harsh remarks, but because I have not been here in awhile, I chose to not say anything. However, I do agree with some of the others about you saying "nasty nurses"..... some of us, myself included, have a very sarcastic sense of humor, but when it comes to patient care, we are definitely among the best... and love our patients. However... we may vocalize in certain situations our displeasure in regards to some things. In looking at that, please also take note, that when reading ones words, you may not be able to hear the humor in their voice, or the exasperation after an exceedingly difficult day. So please, be patient. And if you see or read something you do not like, pass on by.... it saves a huge argument that is sure to ensue.... after all, we are ALL very strong personalities. If we weren't, we wouldn't be nurses, now would we? :)

    The Dreaded Social Media

    I'm afraid I must agree with the others. Just don't. Don't take that chance.

    Termed...After the Fact?

    Yes. I did. It has now cost me a job. Two lawyers from my area won't discuss it with me. I just can't believe it can be changed from a resignation to a termination after the fact. Thank you for your vote of confidence though! I appreciate it! [emoji4]

    Termed...After the Fact?

    ^^^ This^^^ ???? I will call and speak to someone tomorrow. And I know of the place referred to that will call and see if a bad reference is being given.

    Termed...After the Fact?

    Thank you. Due to this very thing, a recent job offer was rescinded the day the "email" was received.

    Termed...After the Fact?

    There were no reprimands, no attendance issues, and unfortunately, no performance evaluations. Time of employment was less than 6 months. But now, there is a mark on the record that is hindering finding another job.
  11. GPatty

    Termed...After the Fact?

    Yes, yes and yes.

    Termed...After the Fact?

    Question: Can an employer request a resignation from an employee (in lieu of being fired) and then two days later, send an email stating they've "changed their mind" and are now marking it as a termination? I certainly would not think so, and I do realize that some states are "no fault". However, this seems a bit over the top in putting a permanent mark on an employees record. What advice do I give and where does one turn to remedy situations such as this?
  13. Thank you! I may need this information! [emoji6]
  14. She was told I sent a mass text to the nurses and CNAs asking them to come work for me..... Work FOR me? Wouldn't it help if I were employed somewhere? I did, however, send out a text to the nurses wishing them all well and telling them I appreciated them and was very happy to have worked with them. I am planning on doing exactly what was said. Gonna lawyer up. i have said text and I also have other "proof". I'm just so irritated that it had to go this route. If left alone, none of us would be in this battle and we could go about our merry ways.
  15. Nope. And that's what I am thinking.
