-Roommate and I went to nursing school
together. The city that the university is in is a while away from both of our hometowns.
-Her parents make her move back home while I stay here in the uni city.
-Job market for nurses sucks in her hometown. She's gotten rejected from the hospitals there, but has an interview for a hospital in the unit city, where I'm at.
-She lets her parents know of the interview, but they don't want her leaving home. Her mom instead says she'll find something in due time and that she needs to wait, and dad says she's cutting her experience of living at home too short.
-She knows what she wants, but she's afraid of hurting her parents.
How would you handle this situation? The longer she remains jobless, the more horrible she'll look when she continues to apply but her parents are ignorant. The situation just frustrates me. Her boyfriend and I have even offered to drive all the way to pick her up for the interview.
