There's no real reason to delve into my sob story here, but I recently found out my dad has lung cancer which he just hasn't talked about to any of my brothers or me, I guess that's just a dad thing to do...
Anyway when I got my license I left to go to a big city about eight hours from home, which was just silly dream-chasing in it's own right. I've been thinking about moving to St Louis which isn't even an hour from home, and now that dad is so sick it's been all I can think about.
The problem is that I just started my first nursing job maybe 6 or 7 weeks ago, if that. The company I work for wants you to have six months in, but I don't know if I can stand that long wait, especially with how long the drive is just to visit home. I haven't even given much thought on how to break this to my manager as I haven't done much job hunting or getting my license transferred, and obviously I need to have a new job lined up before I do anything.
I was just wondering if anyone has had something similar happen to them and would have advice. There's so much I need to think about even outside of the job like finding a sublet for my apartment and finding a new apartment, seeing exactly where I should live and how far from dad that'd put me, etc. But compared to how I think I'd feel if something happened while I was so far away, none of that feels like a big deal if I can just pull it off.
