So I interviewed for a nurse residency program a couple of weeks ago and it is my first choice, I really really want to get it! But....I was offered a job at a community hospital a couple of days ago. I won't find out if I get into the residency program until the first week of December, and the community hospital would want me to start around mid-late November.
If I turn down the community hospital job for the residency program, there is a chance that I won't get into the residency program and then I would be jobless.....
I was advised by some friends and family, that I should take the community job and then if I get into the residency program, I should quit the job at the community hospital and accept the residency position. But I am not sure I would be comfortable with that.
Or I could forget about the residency and stick with the community hospital.
Any input on this?!? What would you do?!?
