I've been at my current position for 7 months and although I've learned a lot, I feel I can't pass up the opportunity for full time days on L&D so I'm thinking of changing hospitals. My problem is I just found out I'm pregnant (I'm only like 4 weeks) with my first child. Will I not be able to get FMLA at my new facility since I will only have been there about 7-8 months when the baby comes?? I'm so excited about this job opportunity so this FMLA stuff is making me panic! Another question- when should I tell the new facility? I'm thinking they will call to offer me the job in the next few days, I literally just found out I'm pregnant myself so when do I tell them? Any info or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

"Pregnancy or no, you've only been at your current position for seven months. My advice would be to stay there. You cannot possibly have learned everything there is to learn in only seven months, nor can you have returned their initial investment in training you."
I don't think the OP is saying that she is finished learning. She has an incredible opportunity to work in a specialty that can be hard to get into. If this is her her chance to be able to work in the field where she wants to build her career, then she should take it.
To OP: FMLA is after one year of employment, but there may be a Maternity Leave policy. I think most places will give you 6 weeks leave.
