5 Questions to Ask Before You Quit Nursing
Jeff Hindenach | NursingLink
If you have a job lined up: Leaving your nursing job doesn’t just affect the present. It can haunt your resume for the rest of your health care career. Are you leaving during a difficult time that will harm the hospital? Have you been there for less than a year? Are you leaving a high-profile position for something less important? These are all questions that could come up in nursing interviews later.
If you don’t have a job: This is a big question, considering you are leaving a good, full-time position to basically be unemployed. Think about your reasoning for leaving and how you can spin that in future interviews without bad-mouthing your current employer. If you can’t think of a good, solid reason, it might be better to tough it out until something better comes along.
