Just an update for anyone reading. I have logged back into allnursing after 4 years. Thank you everyone for all the positive feedback when I was a baby nurse.
4 years later getting forced to resign was indeed not the end of the world. After this incident I started a new job working on the med surg unit at a different hospital. I also have worked in pediatric home health. I currently work as an agency nurse and work at several different hospitals throughout my area.
Reflecting back on this I was a new nurse and I needed more support and was not confident in my abilities. Also, mistakes will happen as you are a new nurse but you must be accountable for yourself and continue to learn and grow. Lastly, if you have ever been in a situation like this and are seeking encouragement just know that you are good enough, you are a good nurse and that a new opportunity will be in your future and it is not the end of the road.
