I am a new grad RN. I was looking for RN jobs on the west coast but had no luck. I accepted a job here in my home state and will be starting next week. Last night I received an interview invite for an amazing medical center on the west coast next week. I unfortunately cannot go because 1) the airline ticket is $700 but hotel expenses! 2) I start orientation next week.
It is my dream job in my dream location but I have to play it safe and stick with my current job. I guess I can gain experience here and find a job on the west coast in the future. How can I politely decline so that they will still consider me in the future? I don't want to mention that I can't afford it... I wish it came at a different time!
