Well you are past the getting your foot in the door stage. To which I say congratulations. And it sounds like you have to great opportunities. However, one of said opportunities may or may not work out since you need time to take care of some things and it sounds like they are hiring now.

My personal suggestion would be to take the promotion with your current employer and get the extra training to make you more marketable. During which time you should save up the 5 grand to pay them back should you decide to make an early escape. I suspect with the extra training you’ll have no problem finding another job with educational benefits.  The two years will also give your FI time to finish his degree and give the two of you a chance to explore more and find where you really want to lay down roots of your own.

Or like you said towards the end. Maybe your FI will find a job in your area and you’ll both decide it is the right place for the two of you.

I wish I had your problem, can’t get into a hospital job for the life of me. The charge nurse position would be excellent for your resume, but I say take your dream job. Nursing is a stressful enough career as is, so do whatever will make you happy in the long run and won’t leave you dreading your next twelve.

This is a tough one… on the bright side, either one sounds great and I think you would be pretty happy and successful at both!

How do you feel about the charge nurse position? It’s a great opportunity, but would it be stressful to you? I have a lot of family and friends who are nurses. Some were burnt out by their jobs and quit, while the others love their jobs and many have been promoted.

If you think the charge nurse position would be too stressful, I’d go with your dream job, especially if you think you might not get that opportunity again. But if not, if you think you can handle it, I’d stick with your current position, since you’re already doing so well there. Good luck!

@kansas_nurse:  Oh I’d love a med-surg unit, basically would love to get into anything besides hospice (not that I don’t love it…it just tires and bums you out after a while) Even med surg positions in my state are so hard to get into. But thanks for the advice! Did you take the promotion?
