Long story short, I am a senior BSN student who was just accepted in an excellent and highly competitive nurse residency program. When I formally accept this position, I have to sign an agreement to work 2 years at the hospital.I have been in the process of trying to commission in the navy for almost a year. Unfortunately, I have never been to the board because of my graduation date. My recruiter said the next board is in august, and the best thing I can do before that is get my license and a civilian job (to show I'm actively participating in the field and not just banking on the navy.)I feel torn. Do I accept this job under pretenses that I may leave prematurely? Would military orders even allow me to break the "contract" with them? It doesn't seem right. I also don't want to decline this job because civilian new grad jobs aren't easy to come by. Also, from the looks of it I may not get picked up right away by the navy because I'll have little experience anyway. Also, does anyone know if I am accepted by the navy and decline the offer, would they ever consider me again? If I don't submit to the board, will they save my filer (I know paperwork would need updates). Any input would be helpful. I'm very confused and hoping for some wisdom and support from fellow nurses! Thank you for reading.
