I am looking for a new job and need to use my past job as reference but my manager is no longer there?
I left my job of almost 1 year as director of nursing. I left under good terms and stayed on PRN well during my stay as PRN evidently rumors where flying around and it was said that I was talking bad about the facility and the 'NEW' administrator decided I should not be working PRN. So that was that. I was never given an explaination or anything, just not scheduled anymore and when I requested my PTO was told I was not eligble, which was fine only a few hours. But now I am looking for a new job and not sure how to handle my references. I am afraid they will give me a bad one, which is unjust, but what can I do. I never worked under the new administrator, so she can not fairly give me a referance on way or the other. But I cant lose a whole year of nursing managment experience. HELP!!!!!! Would it be professional to use my co workers since my supervisor is no longer there?

I am going through a similar situation myself. There is a lot of bad feeling at work because I got the union involved over a pay matter and then my work slipped because of personal reasons. I am trying desperately to leave but my reference is not great and refers to the fact that I am under examination for poor work... More
