First with a quick bio. I'm a 34 y/o male new grad of a AN program in Ohio. I graduated with a 3.59 gpa, was awarded a college student in involvement award and a nurse program excellence in clinical practice award, founding member and treasurer of the student nurse association, an organization that brought the pinning ceremony back to the college. A tradition that has long since been gone from there. Needless to say I worked really hard in my program and that hard work got me noticed by a manager of a local hospital.
So my problem is this. I was offered a job here that I turned down because i was under the impression that I was getting a job in out of state, but when that fell through I called back explained the situation and was given the job in Ohio. Prior to getting the Ohio offer I scheduled an interview for a New grad residency out of state that I would still like to interview for. That program starts Feb 25 2013 where as the job here begins Dec. 3.
What I would like input on is. I feel a moral obligation to work the ohio since they were so willing to hire me and would feel guilty working from Dec to Feb and quitting ( I am not a job hopper my shortest employment was 3 years.) BUt I also don't want to miss out on a excellent opportunity in a part of the country I want to live in.
Is it wrong to leave so quickly?
