Hi all, this is my first time actually using the forums. I hope i get some good feedback. I'm a student in Atlanta ga and i graduate in may (FINALLY!!!!!). I have a job as a nurse extern at a large hospital in an ICU. It's fairly certain that i'll get hired after passing my boards. I think this would be a great learning experience and it's a great opportunity... BUT( and there's always a but) I have no desire to stay in Atlanta once school is over. I know the market is tough and it'll be difficult to find a job in another state as a new grad, let alone in an ICU. My question to everyone is should i just suck it up and stay here and keep a pretty good job in an awesome unit, or attempt to find a job in another place where i haven't networked myself. I feel sort of lost about the whole thing. I'm not sure what the conditions of the contract are, i just know yoiu're required to sign a 2 year contract in a critical care area and two years just feels like such a long time! I'd love to pick up and move to seattle or portland ( i'm originally from san diego) but as i look for jobs, i don't think the prospects are very good.any info or advice would be greatly appreciated!
