I currently work on a busy telemetry unit as a full time RN. The hospital that I work for is about 75 miles from where I live. Recently, in an effort to make some more money, I took on a contingent position with a home healthcare company. Long story short, they offered me a full time position that pays way more and it's closer to home. I decided that it was the best thing for my family if I took the position. I called my manager today to give notice of my resignation. She told me how disappointed that she is in my quitting after putting the time in to train me (understandable.) She also told me that I am wasting my talent. I don't think I agree with her on this. She may have said it out of disappointment and frustration. Nevertheless, now I am second guessing myself.
I took the job not only for the schedule and the money, but also because I think that there will be more opportunities for advancement with a smaller company than there are with a large health system.
I guess I am asking if anyone has had a similar experience and how it shook out for them.
