Can anyone give me some advice if this decision would hurt my chances of getting into school...

I work in a large teaching hospital MICU right now and will have two years experience by the end of the summer. I want to move home shortly after that and apply to schools around there (New England area). Instead of trying to get a job at another hospital and work for less than a year, I could take a few local travel assignments in critical care, pay off my student loans, and be in a good position to start school next year if I get in. It seems like a great idea to me but Im worried about interviewing in the fall and it not looking good on my resume.

Thoughts?
