Areemployment contracts valid in all states?

I’ve been working as an RN for the past 7 months. While joining, I had signed an agreement stating “I agree to continue working at ***** as a full time RN for a minimum of 2 years”. For signing that, they have given me a sign on bonus of $1250 twice (based on the offer letter stating “$10,000 sign on bonus paid every 3 months over the course of 2 years”). Now I’ve couple of very good offers, and I wish to know what I should do in this situation. Can you tell me the legal implications of that agreement and possible ways to break that agreement.
