Before I start rambling on and asking for advice. I want to thank everyone in advance and say that I do realize how lucky I am to have a job in the unit that I wanted right out of school. I am SO thankful for that opportunity.
Alright, so here goes... I graduated this May with my BSN and applied to two NICUs. One of which being my absolute DREAM job within a very large hospital system that has higher acuity then the second. I was offered one positions early before graduating at the smaller hospital. My dream position at the larger hospital told me I was on a list but didn't know if/when they'd have positions open up. So, I was stressing because most of the people in my class had already accepted positions and feared I would never get another offer and took the smaller hospital NICU position.
Now for the dilemma! I'm about 2 weeks into my orientation for my current NICU position. I've just received an offer from said dream hospital in the NICU (aka dream job). Part of me really wants to accept but I feel absolutely AWFUL about having to resign from the current position during orientation. The other part of me thinks I should just suck it up and stick out my first year then reapply to my dream hospital after.
Any thoughts/advice? What would you do if you were in my position? If I do choose to resign, what do I say... that I was offered my dream job? I have no clue! This is the trickiest situation I've been in to date. Also, should I still list this position on my resume for future positions (not like I plan of leaving the dream hospital once I'm in)?
Thank you all SOOOO much!!
