A new chapter of our journey towards FIRE has dawned. I finally found that elusive first job as a NP. Despite difficulty finding nurse practitioner job, we have been smashing our FIRE goals.
Finding a job
All throughout school we heard about the great nursing shortage, but here I was 2 months into the job hunt without any real prospects. I only had enough money for one more month of rent. I now realize just how much money I wasted over my first couple of years out of nursing school especially when I was a travel nurse. Had I started budgeting right away out of school, I’m sure I would be much further ahead in my journey to financial independence.
