I am a BSN student that graduates in less than 2 months. I want to work in the NICU, but the closest NICUs to me do not have positions open. I found a hospital that has openings, I applied, went to shadow there, and interviewed. I absolutely loved it there and the interview went perfectly and lasted an hour. I am confident that I will be offered the position. However, the commute is 1 hour and 18 minutes. Relocating is not an option for me at all. I know that the drive would take a big toll on me, especially since 12 hour shifts are rarely 3 days on, 4 days off. Also, it is a New Grad Residency Program. Therefore, it would require me to travel there once a month for classes and skills practice for a year. This time is not including the mandatory call coverage. I feel like I would be exhausted and my mental health would decline. However, it is the job I have always wanted. I need some advice on whether or not I should take the position. I keep going back and forth with pros and cons and I don't think I can even decide. I want to do what is best for my mental health in the long run.
