Hi! I am in the process of looking for a new job. My hospital system paid for my education, so I owed them 2 years of straight, full-time nursing. I now only owe them 6 months. Here's the dilemma, I was just told that the unit director can hold a nurse up to 3 months! It is 'frowned upon' but possible if the unit director can prove the unit is in a tough time. Our unit is about to change med-surg specialties. Some of our RNs have decided to go to different floors, while we will be receiving a bunch of RNs as well.I'm afraid that I will find the right job, then be told that the unit is in chaos and I have to stay. This could mean a very uncomfortable work environment with peers and unit director for much longer than a month! Although my unit director has always been really nice to me, people have said she can be really passive-aggressive. I'd be like dead RN walking :-(I wondered how other RNs dealt with this? Has anyone been kept that long? Did they make life miserable?Thanks in advance!
