well this is my situation. i am a new grad FNP got my final cert to practice in August but graduated in may. So i have been looking for a job and just haven't found one that was right for me. So in the meantime i have been working at the hospital as a Float RN. My predicament is my husband is going back to AL(we are in MD) to go back to school for a semester to finish up his BA and i really want to go w/ him he will be gone dec to may. Since he has decided this I was looking into travel RN jobs in AL and found some but I have also been offered a part time (2 days a week) NP position here in MD at the place I did my residency which i really like and feel i would get the proper mentoring there but I would still work the weekends at the hospital as a RN until this job as a NP became full time(which is a possibility). So I am in a pickle, do i go to AL where all my family is and my husband and work as a RN for 6 more months or do I take the NP job(part time to hopefully full time) and still work as a RN at the hospital here in MD. I have always lead w/ my head in all situations but this time I would love to lead w/ my heart and go to be w/ my husband and my family but I am so unsure that if I dont take a NP job soon that it will look bad that I waited for a year after graduating to get a job as a NP.
Also, financially both options are about the same so that is really not a factor although we do have a house on the market in MD that I would have to leave and have someone look after q monthly. FYI we eventually want to move down to AL once we sell our house ....HELP!!!
