I’m an ADN-RN and I have been “terminated” from the last 3 jobs I have had for being a “great Nurse but not a great fit.” Which in each I can agree with because they were not in the area of Nursing I wanted to be working in. And for those who are reading this and not of the medical field, getting in your specialty can be either a great pain in the butt, because you have to work at least 2 years on a med/surge floor, than another 1-2 years on a ER/Trauma Unit. Plus you must receive & maintain multiple certifications that can only be acquired if you are working in a hospital. That’s the pain in the butt way. Now I know some people I went to school with were able to get onto units of their choice because they knew someone who was able to get them in. Anyway back to my “terminations.” My very first job as a RN was in home Care with NICU babies, which I stayed at for a little over 2 years before I decided to get my first Hospital job. Actually It was the only way I could get a Hospital job was getting 2 years experience in home care first. I went from 1 patient a night to one of the busiest ERs in the metro area. I was let go at the end of my probation because I couldn’t handle a full patient load by the end of my time. I was told I was a Great Nurse with Great skills and that they didn’t like letting me go, but they needed someone who could handle a full load on their own. I was acceptable for rehire in the hospital but I didn’t receive any help from them in relocating. The next two places I work were places said the same. I have been unemployed since August and have tried applying at hospitals only to be told by on HR department I wasn’t hirable because of my terminations. I’ve really lost my confidence and have become very depressed and my anxiety is through the roof. I’m not sure what to do anymore. I have really blown some interviews because of my anxiety. What should I do?
