I'm a new grad 5 months into a 18 month contract in a step down unit. I can buy out of my contract at anytime and the amount of pto off I have accrued will just about cover it. I like the unit and hospital and would never leave for another hospital in the area. Problem is I have wanted to leave FL in the worst way for the last 4 years, basically since I moved here. Cost of living is outrageous. There is noway we can get a nice house as first time home buyers. Rent is even more expensive and it's difficult to save money. Question is how hard will it be to get a job with only 5 months experience? Are there any advantages to toughing it out until I have 1 year experience?
