I signed an employment contract as a nurse intern for 18 months, however the job is awful.?

I want to end this employment and move on, however the contract states I will owe them 00.00, if i terminate before 18 months. I have only been with this employer for 6 weeks. I am not gaining the experience I had hoped to gain. What are my options?

    Sorry, but you only have one option to stay with the terms of the legal contract that you signed. If you end your employment before the contract is up, it is almost 100% sure that your employer will go after you for the $3,000. And in a lawsuit when both parties have signed the contract, judges tend to follow the exact terms of that contract.

    Your employer knew that his job was not perfect, which is why they tied you to 18 months. And if you leave so much the better for them because they will collect your $3,000 quite easily. I have seen employers go after former employees with judgments and liens against the former employee’s home.

    You are in error about one thing, you are gaining experience. The experience in honoring your word, the experience in staying at a job that you hate for a good reason, the experience in observing how this employer makes the work experience negative. For the next 16 and 1/2 months you can learn how not to do things, and how to be patient when stuck in a unsatisfactory situation.
