I have a question. If I give my two weeks notice on Friday May 25th, my last day should theoretically be June 8th. However, I'll be on vacation from June 1 to 10. Ideally I'd like to come back from vacation and start at my new job on June 11th. But I don't want to burn the bridge at my old/current job so I'm willing to stay until the 15th just to keep myself "rehireable".
Do you think my vacation should be included in my two weeks notice or should I actually work an additional two weeks before my last day?

When you give notice, vacation time is not included in that, and most places will not let you use vacation time or other PTO during the notice period. Some will even discourage sick days, or give you the day off but only as unpaid. So to give notice then roll right into a vacation will likely put you on their Do Not Rehire list.
That being said, check with your HR for your facility's policy, as they can vary widely. And if you really don't want to burn bridges with this facility, be prepared to either reschedule your vacation or give notice after you return.
Best of luck.
