no, he's been unemployed and looking for work since January, hence his frustration. and yeah, I'm also REALLY concerned about "what if it doesn't work out in another state and we have to move back?" because I currently work at the only decent company in our tiny state; most facilities here have been bought by one of two giant corporations and the working conditions suck.
yes of course, I've told him all of my concerns and asked if he would be willing to compromise - i.e. take a contract job here for 6 months to a year - which would likely be beneath his skill set, but it would give both of us time to save up money and it would help me to not burn bridges with the only decent SNF company in our state. He said he really wants to have a new start ASAP, and that we could do long-distance for a few months until I'm ready to move. Obviously I don't want to do that, so that's why I wanted to get some insight from other people in nursing re: how long would I have to stay at this job to leave on a good note and/or how to quit without burning bridges if necessary? I'm really hoping he manages to find a job here and then we won't have to worry about it, so I'm trying to gently convince him to at least keep LOOKING in this area.
