First and foremost, let me state I am NOT a new grad. I was just given a job offer from Duke's health system. However, the hiring manager is requiring a 2 year minimum contract. I think this is a bit excessive. I don't have plans to jump ship, however, I would really prefer not to be locked into a contractual agreement. As I am sure most of you know, sometimes you don't always gel with the culture/management of a unit.
My question is: Is this standard? (They are not giving me a sign on bonus etc...) Am I unable to transfer prior to two years time? I have asked nurse recruitment and they stated I would not be penalized, but would not receive a written reference from my manager.
If there is anyone who has experience with this I would love to hear from you. You can also PM me if you prefer.
