In a pickle

Hi everyone! I am a second-career newly graduated RN and have been busy with orientation for a month on a tele floor. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, my husband has found himself without a job and as such we may have to move to another state... I know it is frowned upon to leave a residency and I am so scared if the repercussions. Do you think that I may be deemed unhirable? I am devastated and wish things were not this way....

I do not think you will be unhirable because nurses are needed everywhere. Some experience is better than no experience. I had to move states after 7months of being a new grad. The downside is that at the next hospital you will be starting all over. If I had a year of experience I wouldn’t have had to start at the bottom and work my way up.

good luck!

Thank you for sharing your experience. Did you sign any documents at the beginning of your residency? We had to sign one that said we would "Commit to 12 months employment on your HIRED UNIT as a FULL TIME employee with xxx" - is there anything they can do if I were to resign due to these extenuating circumstances?
