Job change decision

Not sure if this is the best place to post this inquiry. I currently work two nursing jobs, full time home health, and PRN at an orthopedic surgery center. I recently decided that I wanted to go back to full time at the surgery center and approached the boss. She immediately offered me the job and I was excited for the change. When I put my notice in at my full time job they offered me more money and begged me not to go (we have a high turn over as it is and a couple really good people have recently left). I can't pass up the raise at my full time job, it will make almost 5$ an hour difference. How should I let the surgery center know without them hating me?? I am so embarrassed to go to them and tell them I've changed my mind :((

Explain to the surgery centre that you couldn't turn down such a huge raise and hadn't realized what a huge lurch you would have left the home health agency in.

Why?

They know about the monies at least as well as anyone. They are free to offer you more if they are really hoping you'll take their FT position. In fact, if they wanted to you to sign on FT they could've tried to entice you to do so at any time leading up to this day. And if they don't care one way or another...well then there's no reason at all (as opposed to just a teeny tiny passing thought) to feel bad for them.
