OK- went to interview today for my "dream" nursing job in oncology and just as I thought............I love it and want it
. Sending thankyou note to the person that interviewed me and when I left she said "I can't hire you directly b/c that all goes through HR but, will tell you to be expecting call from Mrs. so & so in HR. If you haven't heard from her by Friday, call me.
" She gave me her card with her pager and direct line :wink2: . So, I took this as she is going to offer me the job. Do you think I am reading this right?
Now, here is the problem......prior to NS, I worked for a rural hospital and have been staying in touch b/c of job prospect once done with school. Being small they don't have any other specialty areas other than ICU/ER. So, I would end up on M/S (not what I really want at all
). I am feeling guilty b/c I really don't want to go back to the rural hospital b/c no one is happy there and they are about to lay off more workers (layed off 1/3 of staff this time last year when taken over by new Hosp system) :innerconf . Also, I received scholarships
(1500.00) from aux. at rural hosp. so that is another thing that is giving me guilt thoughts. Do I owe the rural hospital to go back to them and be unhappy (definately don't want to burn any bridges) or, if offered my "dream" job go for it?????
Please HELP!! Any thoughts/advice on the matter as far as me owing something to the rural hosp?
Thanks so much for reading this windy post.........sorry bout that but I am beginning to feel sick thinking about it!!

I agree that if you didn't sign a contract when you accepted the scholarship money, you don't owe them anything. Loyalty is nice, but if job security is poor, you owe it to yourself to look elsewhere.
Good luck and I say take the dream oncology job!
BTW, love your sigline! Let's do the time warp again! Now I'll have that damn song in my head all evening! :chuckle
