Joanie Smith is a 32-year-old single mother of two who will graduate in 3 months from a local associate degree nursing program. Joanie has accrued some debts in completing her nursing education.
She has been offered two jobs upon graduation: one is at a local medium-sized hospital (Community Center Hospital) and one is in a larger city some distance away (Metropolitan City Hospital).
Both job offers are in the obstetrical unit, which is Joanie’s desired place of work because some day, she hopes to return to school to become a nurse midwife.
Research on the two hospitals shows that both are accredited and have good medical staffs, and Joanie has received positive feedback on both from people whose judgment she trusts.
