I currently work a magnet hospital as a nursing assistant. I started here about 6 months ago and my director knew that I was going to graduate from nursing school in a few short months and we talked about starting in the new grad program they have. I graduated in May and passed my nclex the first week of June. I had applied to a few new grad positions the following week. I did mention my applications to my director and she kind of brushed it off and said "at least you have a job" and "We've had a CNA that waited 8 months to become a new rn with us, its worth waiting" I felt a little brought back however I listened and continued working there as a CNA as I applied to other hospitals. Two months later and I haven't heard back and my application status haven't changed. I have been offered 2 new grad positions at other hospitals and I accepted a new grad RN position elsewhere than where I currently work. I start in a few weeks but I am having a hard time not feeling guilty about leaving my current workplace. My new job offer is a New grad position and on my dream unit in the ICU.
Advice on how to resign as a CNA? I plan to give them well over two weeks notice so I don't burn any bridges but I have a feeling my director won't take it too well.
I don't understand why I feel guilty. Anyone else experience anything similar?
Thanks for any insight!
