Hello everyone! I am a new grad nurse and was offered a position at a hospital, I signed the contract but don’t start until March 10th also I haven’t taken my NCLEX yet (super new grad). Today I got an offer for another hospital that was my first choice. I wanted to know if their is any penalty in canceling a contract if I haven’t began working their yet?

You shouldn't have a problem, you haven't even been though orientation.  I'm assuming you haven't accepted any kind of sign on bonus.

Did you read the contract? Because the answer to your question is in the contract.

Sorry but I feel like reading the contract would be the obvious first step. but I have read other forums and people tend to skip the obvious so I understand. I’ve read it and it does not mention it but contracts are binding in some form or fashion (from my experience) And I was just wondering from experienced nurses if a contract with no bonuses is cancelled prior to starting date Is their any type of penalty.
