- Aug 3, '12 by stRiviNg10I currently work at a facility where they hire new grads with an 18 month contract and I feel locked in for sure, but I am also learning as much as possible. There are some benefits of being contracted such as: they provide you with classes, gradually orient you to the unit, etc. I would say that if you are struggling to find a job and that is an option for you take it. You may or may not like the job, but after some time you will be able to leave and find another facility or unit! Think about it!! Good Luck!
- Aug 3, '12 by NewGradRN24The job market is not so great these days it's really horrible... Whatever opportunity you can get to a good stable job with benefits take it. I graduated in dec 2011 and I just got hired this past month. Go for it!
- Aug 3, '12 by PranqsterIm curious, what are the consequences for quitting? will they beat you or something?
- Aug 3, '12 by RNMegI am currently in year 2 of a 4-year contract with my employer. They paid for my BSN in full, and if I should leave before my contract is up, I just have to repay a prorated balance. Otherwise, I am treated exactly as any other employee. I was given my choice of department to work in and I was permitted to change jobs within the facility (I start my new position in ICU next week!). This was a good career decision for me, but only because I was agreeable to the terms of the contract. I would recommend going in with open eyes
- Aug 3, '12 by not.done.yetIf you quit before the contract is up they charge you for the amount of training you versus the amount of time worked. Pretty much every new grad position that offers a structured orientation/internship comes with this caveat now.
