I recently graduated from a BSN nursing program
and it took me almost a month to get a job because my boss was giving me the run around, which was really ridiculous and long story. Just know she really slapped me in the face metaphorically and screwed me oer some opportunities. But she finally hired me. I was so excited because I had been so desperate for a job. I had been job hunting for a while before I got my license and after which was about 1.5- 2 months. But soon after I accepted the job offer I got two other interviews and they also offered me the job. I really want to stay on my unit but it didn't help that my boss was giving me the run around. Another thing is my husband and I plan to move in a year so I would need more experience than a post partum unit.
The offer I got at another hospital is a Med/Surg unit and I thought that would help me for my future plans when I look for another job. Because everywhere wants Med/Surg experience.
Therefore my dilemma is right now I am orienting but will need to start the Med/Surg job the end of this month. I can't decide whether to give a 2 week notice or a few days that I will be quitting? Because she could just tell me to leave immediately and I would not have any pay this month. I don't know what to say to my boss because when she hired me I told her I really wanted the job and that is where I wanted to be (only because my friends I made there and I was desperate) but something better came along. Now I fear she will burn me with her fire eyes. Please help!!!
