I was the only full-time RN. When a full-time LPN was hired, I was downsized. I was told that I needed to go prn, and I refused. When I had a dental emergency, I was discharged after I worked the 4th of July holiday. During my time there, I worked every major holiday. I was afforded unemployment because I was discharged without just cause. I feel I should of left when I was told I needed to go prn because the supervisor above my director was discharged due to downsizing within the company. I loved taking care of my patients, and the majority requested I be their nurse because of my knowledge base and my caring attitude. I treated every patient as though they could be a member of my family. I performed extensive wound care, IV infusions, and teaching patients and family members of the care required when I wasn't there. I loved the work. I was born to be a caregiver.
