so I regrettably signed a contract that is binding me to a one year employment with a plastic surgery office as an OR RN nurse .thinking that I had thirty days to back out of it. Unfortunately it turned out that the contractual period started on the first day of employment. Meaning if I leave now I will be penalized $10,000.
Then 7 days later I received a call from an agency (Prime staffing agency in NYC) that they were starting w pilot program for nurses with no hospital experience..it starts at $15/hr but it is possible to get into L&D directly with a reputable facility - Jersey city medical center.
after three months you will make new grad rates for nine months then go up another bump afterward.
L&D has always been something I wanted to do . And now I'm losing it because I feel like I did something so stupid and careless by signing the contract. I had no idea that it was even possible for me to get an offer like this one because I don't have the best GPA nor do i have any acute experience.
i want to try to renegotiate the contract to working per diem perhaps but im honestly worried that I will end up with nothing. What would you do if you were in my situation?
