  1. Hey guys! So I’m currently working at a prestigious hospital on a cardiac Stepdown unit, but I’m not happy whatsoever and I recently got a job offer at another well known, teaching hospital in a CVICU (which is my goal unit). Long story short, I moved 600 miles away for my current job and I knew no one here prior to moving leaving my boyfriend and family behind. There have been a lot of things that my current job does that are extremely unsafe, such as, short staffing and floating us to units we have no business working. 5 months after starting I was floated to burn and the ED when I have only been trained for cardiac stepdown. On top of that, they require mandatory overtime. I am always exhausted, always stressed, and very lonely. My boyfriend lives back where I am from so he encouraged me to apply to the hospital there because it has an amazing reputation to work for and I’d at least be close to friends and family. I was offered a CVICU position within a week of applying and I’ll start in April if I accept the job, so I will have worked at my current job for 9 months before leaving. All of my managers have been supportive and expressed that they would be references for me in the future. I am just needing reassurance that leaving this soon won’t ruin my future chances at grad school. I do plan on staying at this CVICU for minimum 2 years and getting my CCRN before I apply to school so I’m hoping that helps my chances. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Oh, thank goodness! One of the biggest reasons I am leaving is because of the Winter weather...it's miserable! I will be moving sometime in July. I start July 20th, so hopefully I can move down in the beginning of July to get settled in and explore a little bit!

    I am from the Cedar Rapids area! Do you love living in Tennessee? I have been there many times, and I have loved it, but I understand living there can be a lot different so I am super nervous! Congratulations on getting a NICU position :)
