I am a new nurse and have been in my position for 6 months. Though I've worked as a tech there since 2011. It was my first RN job offer and I took it. I had been applying out of state as a new grad and had no luck. So I took the job. I was going to stay for at least a year but things changed. My significant other found a job in a different state. And I found an amazing opportunity in the state we want to live in as well.
I feel bad because I'm a new grad and they spent a lot of time and money on me. Although, the work environment isn't the greatest and turn over rate is high. Several people have left while I've been here. Which makes it harder bc their staffing situation will be worse. But I already don't feel comfortable bc their staffing is never adequate, sometimes I'm one of the more experienced nurses on that night, and my license is at risk because of that.
They require 4 weeks notice but I have to give only 3 weeks, because of the move and new job start date. Is this going to look bad? I feel terrible for leaving, but it's what will be best for me and my career/life.
