If you quit your job now, your boss can report you. Stay there for another 2 months, then quit.

What are you talking about? Can you clarify?

Some states require reporting of termination.

Report OP for what? It is not illegal to quit a job that is unsafe for practice and for patients.

Yes. Resignation is not termination. Some resignations have to be reported, too, but that generally refers to resignations in lieu of termination for something that would violate a NPA/board regulations. If you try to resign in order to avoid being justly terminated and subsequently reported, yes in some states it is mandated to report that resignation as well.

I'm not getting how any of that is related to this situation, where the poster is being advised to resign ASAP (but not to do it at a juncture that leaves any patient without nursing care). ?

It isn't termination if we're saying quit immediately and never accept the assignment. That means, do NOT take report, don't show up to work, don't do anything in any capacity of an employee any longer. That isn't termination it's resignation. OP did nothing wrong that requires reporting to BON and even if the facility did it would be easily proved it was OP quitting due to an unsafe environment/assignment. I also highly doubt the facility would report for fear of BON, etc checking them out and shutting them down.

I was not responding to the OP specifically, but to the question of who says to report. And while some may choose to resign rather than be terminated, there is at least one state that does indeed require reporting that if it is for a reason against the nurse practice act.

Regardless, anyone can make a report for any reason- including vile and vindictive employers. Doesn’t necessarily mean anything will come of it, but it can sure as heck be a big headache.

I think I see what you're saying, but that's no good reason to stay in such an unsafe environment. Then, instead of a vindictive type report, one would be at risk for an actual report involving something serious like negligence.

Most of these places are like this and they don’t give a d*mn about you, your license, or the patients. Get out. Quit. They will not change.

That's really bad, but they pull that bs on people all the time. But it's kind of hard to leave, all those patients needing a nurse there, and needing their meds and all. And if you have the keys, who are you,gona turn over the narcotic count and the keys to if no one comes in to relieve you . it must be a pretty bad place to work, if they can't keep enough staff for each shift. I say, run , dont walk, to the time clock as soon as you get relief. You can't keep that kind of stuff up day after day.
