    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. But it is EASY as hell for us to sit here and tell you to "GO FOR IT" ...we are not taking the risks you are. I like the idea of writing the two-column PRO VERSUS CON thing. I do that myself with all the major decisions in my life. It has worked out well. Regrets? yea maybe but you are the captain of your ship so do what is best for YOU. Nursing is a BIIIG field; aren't you glad all the options we have are there?

    Thanks for all of your replies. To clarify, these were my options.

    1-stay with my current employer (small community hospital) and transition from LPN to RN role

    2-take the new job, (larger city hospital) and start as a GN

    To answer questions, it doesn't interfere with my wedding plans, the pay is comparable, the drive to the larger hospital is shorter,
    the benefit plans at larger hospital are better.

    My gut is telling me to take the plunge and try it! I think I could still stay per diem at my current employer, and if things didn't pan out, I could go back to regular staff.

    The more I think about it, I'm sure a day position will come up sooner or later
