I've posted on this forum before and got a good response, so I thought I'd give it another shot. I'm a new nurse, graduated with my BSN in August 2011. I'm not happy with my current job, which is on a surgical oncology floor located one hour from my house. I'm under a two-year contract that is worth $13,500. I feel stuck in my current position even though I dread going to work and am not happy! I'm married and this is not helping my marriage! My husband was supportive through nursing school and knew it would get better once I got out of school. I'm depressed and unhappy in this new job of mine which I've been at since October, 2011, and it's just not fair to my family. I just don't know what to do! I've considered applying to places near my home and seeing if they will buy out my contract?! I think the drive is a lot of my problem, plus, the floor I'm on is just so hard and is not for me. Any advice from experienced RNs who have maybe broken contract? Or appealed contracts? Or just know what I'm going through?! Thanks for listening...I really try to look at the bright side but I didn't go through all the hard work of nursing school to dread my job! =(
Dont break contract!!!!!!!!!!! However look for a transfer. You are just going through transition so it does take time. In the meantime, find an outside outlet so you can burn off the negative enegry. You dont want to put for job online because you are depressed. You also don't want to put your marriage on the line either.
