I'm in a bit of a pickle and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this topic, or any advice on what to do.
I graduated in December 2018, and I have a job offer for Labor and Delivery RN (my dream specialty to work in) to start orientation on July 8th. The hospital is about a 40 minute drive from where I live, and I have to cross a toll bridge to get there.
I just found out that I am pregnant......with twins . Still processing this information lol. Its early in the pregnancy, but I am considering a lot of things now due to my last pregnancy. I had pre-eclampsia my last pregnancy and my daughter was 2 months premature. So I am being considered high-risk.
The orientation/training period at this new job is 4 months long. By the time I am done with orientation I am worried that it wont be long before I am possibly placed on bedrest, or have another reason to have to leave early for maternity leave. Basically, I fear I won't be at this new job for very long before I have to leave.
I am wondering what my best bet is here. Should I continue with the position? Or should I decline for now, and find something more local that I can still use for work experience? I have been in contact with a home care agency that would accept me right away for locations that are closer to me, as well as another job prospect that is close to me as well. These jobs are not particularly in my field of interest, but I could still work them for nursing experience and save some money for the new babies; then once I'm ready to go back to work after they're born, I can try for a hospital job.
