Hello Everyone,

I am in a dilemma. I have accepted a job in an undesirable location, however it is the preferred unit I would like to work on. Currently, I am a few months into the new graduate program. I signed a two-year contract to be with this company. However, shortly after beginning this position. I was offered a position in my dream location that I could see myself working at for a really long time. However, in this hospital, I would not be working in my dream unit to start. I am hoping to switch into my dream unit in a few months. It is not guaranteed that I will switched to a preferred unit. What should I do? I'm wondering if from experience I should choose my unit or location. If I stay with my current position, I will want to leave when my contract is up in 2 years to move to a better location. Right now, I currently have both jobs, and I am unsure of which to leave. 

Thanks

Put your 2 yrs in and move to your desired hospital. You will be in a far better position to get the unit you want.

I agree.

Would've been a different answer if you got into your dream unit.
