Just want some input. Would you rather commute a little over an hour (50 miles) to a job that is in the specialty that you want to make a career out of or stay at a job where the commute is short (15... Read More

    I do not live in snow country, thank goodness! I am one of those Southerners that, though I think it is beautiful, I cannot drive in it! If it snows, it is once in a couple of years, so that isn't too big of an issue.

    I have always lived somewhere that I had to drive to get to where I wanted to go. I grew up in the country, got a job in the big city, and miss my lifestyle before. Moving in the future is definitely an option, I would just have to wait for my hubby to find a job up there too. Both of our parents live around the area of the job, and I was wanting to move up there at some point before we start a family.

    I thank everyone for their input! I have an interview next week at a hospital that is a little closer, so I am going to weigh my options at that point. It is for the same specialty, so we will see how it goes!!!

    And when environmentalists become sanctimonious jerks they defeat their cause. Bullying and condescending and guilting people about their carbon footprint isn't gonna save Mother Earth, and obscures your argument with so much unpleasantness and cruelty that you will lose by default. In fact, that nauseating post made me want to go buy the biggest gas hog SUV, park it next to the poster's bedroom window and idle all night while dancing around spraying aerosol cans and littering styrofoam cups everywhere. Bicycle away from here, please, and spare us your ignorance & judgment, because it isn't just about YOU, you know.
    I laughed so hard I snorted at work!!!

    Yes, you are correct, it is in fact, my opinion. However, you err when you suggest it was delivered harshly. That wasn't the least bit harsh, lol. It is simply food for thought. The point is, there are other highly significant variables to consider besides those rather simplistic ones mentioned.

    Nowhere did I indicate that mine should be the final word on the subject, and as of yet, I have not been empowered by allnursesdotcom to stop others from sharing their opinions. I'm not sure why you inferred I wanted to stifle the dialogue.

    So then if we are all to atone for our salvo, and you have decreed that this emprise be my penance for offering a point of view that actually puts others ahead of myself, what will your expiation be for this ignominy?

    It was some pretty self-righteous and self-congratulatory food for thought. If that wasn't what you were going for, perhaps you might want to consider your word choice.

    Your post wasn't well received- that doesn't relieve you of responsibility of what you have written. You own your words.

    I’d tell you what I’m thinking right now BlueDevil, about you and YOUR carbon footprint, but that would get me kicked off here. Just sayin’.

    And as for the question, take the job you would enjoy, and enjoy the commute. I know I do.
