Is there any way to relocate?
Not really, at least not very easily - married, 3 kids, mortgage.
About 10 days ago, I started applying to jobs just over an hour away & had an interview with one 2 days ago. Would love to work there; bigger, newer facilities than the smaller hospitals in my area. BUT also got a call & interviewed yesterday at a closer hospital where I did 2 semesters of clinicals. Both went well, but I think the closer hospital will work better right now for me & my family. They actually both start out about the same in pay, but the larger hospital gives a $5 increase/hr in the base rate after 18 mos. Sounds super but with being a brand new nurse with a 7 month old, I'm thinking a shorter drive at a familiar facility will be better for right now at least.
Hopefully will hear something from both in the coming week
Also, had a call from a 3rd hospital about 45 minutes away & interview there on Monday!
