Hi all,

I'm just wondering what the etiquette is for transferring to a different unit within the same hospital? Do I talk to HR first, tell my manager I'm interested in transfer, just apply for the job or what? I don't want to burn bridges with my current manager but I'd also like to keep her out of "the know" for as long as possible. Thanks for any insight!

There is no one "right answer".  However, your manager will find out and probably have to "sign off" on the transfer so it is probably best to tell her early, and give ample notice.  Some hospitals/managers make transferring a challenge so be prepared to change hospitals if that is what it takes. Another, option is to go down to PRN while you are looking for a new job (unless benefits are an issue).
