    Nursing support

    By support I mean if there is another coworker that is harassing me they (management) will do something about it, and not reprimand me the person that was harassed (because I'm the new one at a facility). I have found this to be a common problem for me, and do not understand why when I'm generally nice to everyone. I do not want to be ugly with anyone because not only is it out of my character, but it's the wrong thing to do. It doesn't help either. If anything I would think being mean would hurt me even more. I usually try to look at things from a third party's perspective but can't seem to see how someone else's explosive outburst is my fault.

    Nursing support

    Does having the support that nurses need by management exist in the work place these days? I've found this to be a common factor on all of the jobs I've had as a nurse and would like to know if a nursing job with adequate support from management exists.

    HIPAA question

    Would telling a patient's family member out side of the work place that you took care of their relative a Hipaa violation in front of one of my family members? Is it a violation to describe something you saw physically or ask about something? Do I need to report myself? I'm so worried!

    How do I leave a job after working one day of orientation?

    Now I'm trying to come up with what to tell the full time institution. I told them over the phone that I couldn't go to orientation this week because I was orienting for an as needed job, but that I really wanted to work for them. LOL! I'm worried about looking bad for quitting another job after a day. I don't know if I should call them back and say I can come in this week or what? This is a mess, but I guess it's a good mess to have. lol!
  7. I have been unemployed for a long time now. I just started orientation today for an as needed position. I got a call today for a full time position at another institution. I don't know what the proper thing would be to do. Do I give a 2 weeks notice or do I just call and say I am no longer interested in the as needed position because I got an offer for a full time position else where??? What do I do? I don't know if I should go personally as if I was continuing orientation and tell them when I got there. I'm scared to lose the full time position because it seems like they want me to start right away. I'm excited about that but I'm scared of burning bridges.

    unemployed and need help

    Any advice on dealing with unemployment? I have periods of time where I'm either sad or mad about the fact that I do not have a job. I find also that after I go on interviews I feel like future employers don't feel like I'm good enough to give me a full time position or even a part time! It always seems like I have to prove to everyone that I'm good enough! It's as if my year and a half is nothing! It's really frustrating! Sorry about the rant, but I really need to vent. When you have been unemployed for as long as I have it wears on you.

    What can I say in an interview if I'm asked, "why did you quit your job?" Any and all advice to this will be greatly appreciated.

    unemployed and need help

    No I did not quit my first RN job. I was terminated because they didn't think I could do everything they were asking of me. They wanted me to be charge nurse as well after three months of orientation. The manager for the first job walked me out of the facility and told me that I could not work in a hospital and that I should go work in a nursing home. I remember feeling horrible/ like a failure walking out and wanted her to go away and not walk me out. For my last job I did actually go to my manager's boss. I was written up by my bully and found that my write up for the person harassing me was not turned in to my boss's boss because my boss never turned it in. In fact my boss was the one who suggested to the person that was harassing me to write me up. So when I went to my boss's boss they had the harassers write up and not mine. I did show them my write up but it was as if it was nothing. Prior to all of this I asked to be moved to a different unit and my boss told me no. Who's idea was it originally for me to move to a different unit? My boss. .......Yes, I'm not happy.

    I've applied to all of those areas of nursing except TCU. What is that?

    unemployed and need help

    Well I'm unemployed again. This is the second job I've had as a registered nurse. Experience: about a year and a half. I quit because I was harassed and my boss did not do anything about it. My boss's boss did not do anything about it either. I felt like I could not trust the people I worked with. The working environment was very toxic for me. I have been unemployed for several months now and I fear the longer I go with out a job the harder it is to find a job. I have had a few interviews, but I always get the same answer, "We hired someone else." I have also gotten the answer, "We don't want you." I have spoken with one nurse recruiter for a hospital outside of my area because I was having trouble filling out a job application online (my computer froze and it shutdown while filling it out). She asked me if I was a new grad and I told her, "no." She then told me that I would need experience in the department I was applying for and that the program to train someone to work in that department was filled already and would have to wait till next year. Seeing that I haven't worked for months I then proceeded to tell her that I would be interested in working in the same type of unit I was previously working. She stated, "Well why did you quit your previous job?" I told her for a better job opportunity. She then stated, "Well why would it be any different here?" At that point I didn't know what to say. I could have told her that their work environment wouldn't be as toxic as where I worked before but didn't say anything. I don't know how to answer the questions, "why did you quit your previous job? Why would working here be any different?" I'm guessing telling them on the phone, on paper, and through a computer screen that I'm "seeking a better job opportunity" is not cutting it. I don't want to say that I was bullied/harassed because they will probably think that I'm a problem. I'm really frustrated because I feel like I'm not even given a chance. I have been with out work for months now and I do not know what to do anymore. I have applied everywhere in my area. Now I'm applying in other areas outside where I live and its not working. I feel like I'm hitting a brick wall. All I want is a stable job. I am trying to stay positive about it all, but I do struggle some days. Any advice would greatly be appreciated. P.s. I did try to switch units before I quit but was not allowed to.

    Terminated

    I had a mini phone interview and I don't think it went well. I'm suppose to havea face to face one tomorrow and I need advice. Thinking back on my mini one I think I made it too much of a point that I was terminated. I didn't state that I was terminated bc the facility didn't train me well. Instead I made it seam like it was my fault. Advice for my interview tomorrow would be greatly appreciated.

    Termination paper work

    After filling out termination paperwork can a hospital refuse to give you a copy of what you signed because "it's against hospital policy?"
