Hello, all , so I have a new opportunity to work in ER as a NP, 12 hours *****, double the money I make now with full benefits. I currently work as at a FQHC a few miles from my house, the hours are 2, 10s and 2 8s, 1 weekend a month with full benefits. The ER is 90 miles 1 way away, but I would get more time off during the week and may have a more challenging job.
I became a NP to work in ER but have found it hard to find an ER job due to very little experience in ER. Now I have this job offer because its so far and I think no one wants to drive. Should I take the ER and quit the FQHC? I find myself bored at the FQHC and the admin is challenging to deal with. I am not sure if the convenience of being so close to home beats the more money and more flexibility. What do you all think? any input appreciated.
PS: I am married with 1 child, no plans for more, babysitting is not an issue
