    I would mention that you took a job at X facility, but when you interview with Y facility, don't talk about why you want to leave X, talk about why you want to work at Y. Play up THAT part. You've worked there before, you like a, b, and c about Y facility. I think mentioning the commute is OK, when you talk about it in terms of, it eliminates potential attendance issues due to a long commute (car trouble, weather, etc). This tells them that those things won't be a concern with you.

    They can find out where you're working now, so I wouldn't hide it. You also may need to give notice at X (on orientation, they may not require 2 weeks, but you can't bank on that). You took the job because you needed a job, but it was always your desire to work at this other place. That's not bad. Don't even mention the working conditions whatsoever, they don't need to know that. What they need to know is that you want to work there, and why.

    thanks for the list of potential scenarios!

    I still am confused about how to proceed from here. Assuming I get the interview but perhaps don't get the job, do i need to list my current job on future apps and interviews?
    How would I explain leaving current job so soon?
    Any of you ever left a job so soon due to horrible conditions?
    If so, was it easy to explain in an interview and still get hired somewhere else?
    I don't want to give up on my nursing career, I want to find a supportive work environment where I can practice nursing in confidence and give quality care.
    Thanks for all your insights and tips, everyone!
    I love Allnurses!
    I guess I'm not quite sure what you are looking for here. You've got two threads going simultaneously, and many, many people offering very specific suggestions on how to proceed. I don't mean to be critical or mean, I just don't understand what it is you want at this point.

    1. Yes. You do want to show your experience, even if it wasn't what you hoped for.

    2. "It just wasn't a good fit for me" If pressed, "there is a high turnover rate, and I hope I can find a supportive environment where I can be learn to deliver the highest quality of patient care."

    But, don't be negative, don't complain about the other place
