As far as what to tell new employers. Tell them that you were terminated after self reporting a med error. Tell them that you deeply regret making the error, that the patient was not adversely effected but even though you were terminated you believe in honesty and integrity and would not change the fact that you self reported even though it ended up with your termination. Most nurses will understand. You can even tell them you learned something from it, like to triple check the mar or whatever would have helped you not to make the error. Best of luck, let go, move on!
