I am really stressed out and figured I would post here for advice.
My husband is getting promoted which will require relocating out of state. I only have 4 mos in my 1st nursing job and was a student nurse (and worked as a tech) for 2 years before that.
I am stressed because I keep reading how difficult it has been for new nurses to find jobs. I was fortunate in I was hired as an RN as soon as I passed boards, at a hospital where I was already working as a tech.
To make things even more complicated, I am pregnant so I doubt I can get hired anywhere else and even if I do I won't qualify for FMLA.
I see my only option as staying where I'm at for a few months while my husband moves without me. We can't afford to lose my income.
Any possibilities I'm not thinking of?
I will say one thing that may be of interest here...I have about five mos. experience and am not loving my job. I interviewed somewhere else and was told if I was hired they would treat me as a new grad and put me through their new grad residency program. Point being, there is always the possibility that you aren't, in fact, in that limbo period b/w being a new grad and having enough experience...
