Which I planned to do anyway. And then at the end of my year, I get another $2000 (less taxes), but would have to stay another year.

    No thanks on that second check. I will refuse it. Also, I will refuse the tuition reimbursement my employer offers, because for each semester they pay for, you have to work a year. And they tax the reimbursement. (Which somehow seems illegal, since taxes were already paid on the money previously)

    At the end of my year, I want nothing obligating me to my current hospital.
