Well I did not see this one coming...

Let me just start off by saying I graduated from college in May. I'm a murse (male nurse... Yes yes Gaylord focker jokes inserted here).

I was stoked because I had been working in the ICU before I had finished school and they ended up hiring me full time along with 3 others one being my SWMBO. Well over the last three months I've been oriented by just straight bitches and I've been doing a bang up job.

I've had no complaints from families or patients, caused no safety errors, and gotten the job done with proper documentation at all times. The only reason I can figure out that I got fired was that my boss realized she over hired for the amount of patients we receive on the unit and that one of my orientators didn't particularly care for me too much.

Now I have the hassle of trying to find another job which probably wont be too hard in this field but I will most likely lose all my benefits for at least 6 months if I goto another hospital.

So frustrating and the manager told me when I was hired that if I needed more time she would give it to me and she told me that there was no more time to give halfway through my orientation. Then she goes and tells my SWMBO that she can have more orientated time if she needs it. ****ing sexist ass bull**** if you ask me.

Anyways sorry for the rant

RDWHAHB. Get back on that saddle. You'll be making even more money with better benefits in no time.

One silver lining, look at all the extra time you can spend brewing now.

You'll be able to find another job no problem. Two of my sisters are RNs and they're constantly getting calls from headhunters trying to recruit them for other hospitals.

Well, that bites! Since Nevada is an at-will state, they don't even have to say why.

Ummmmm, if you truly suspect gender discrimination you might have a lawsuit on your hands. Just a thought.
