Hi everyone. I am a new grad who is in a sticky situation. I applied to both hospital A and hospital B at the beginning of May.
I accepted a job at hospital A two weeks after applying. So far, I have completed one week of corporate/hospital orientation & one day on the unit. Hospital A is much more rural, pays significantly less, is 50 minutes away, has a shorter orientation & has a higher patient to nurse ratios.
Hospital B just 8 minutes away, pays much better and has an official "new grad" residency program, which they just interview for. I was offered a spot. I will definitely be moving to Hospital B.
So my question is, what should I say to my manager at hospital A? How should I phrase my letter of resignation? And when I see my manager in person and she asks me for more details about why I'm leaving (which she will), how do I answer professionally? I just don't want to burn any bridges. Thank you!
