This will be for sure a setback on your nursing career. It is not over, but, absent powerful family/friend connections in the desired hospital, expect future employment to be at much less prestigious facilities, locations, units, and shifts. Prove you are a safe nurse there and in a couple years you will be rehabilitated and eligible for the kind of job you just lost. In your position, I would take it as a good thing that you were terminated. Seriously, by what you wrote, I have no doubt that your cockiness was driving you down the road to do serious harm to a patient and consequently your license. You were a very unsafe nurse. The hospital did you a favor by stopping you before you got your license revoked. Better lose a job than your license right? This is how I would view the situation: a blessing in disguise. Now get your head up, change your moniker to humblenurse1, and start applying for jobs!
