I don't want to be pushy but the nurse manager told me after my 2nd interview that I would hear from her a week ago... its been 2 weeks now. I've called HR each week and he now says that the unit is looking over their budget and that I would hear back from them this week.
I don't know what to expect. I feel like they can't say NO to me so they are giving me the run-around. Am I'm wrong about this?

If you haven't already done so, resume the job search
. Yes, it may be taking longer than they said for them to make a decision...or maybe they took the coward's way out and didn't bother to call/write to tell you No. Only they know. But as of now you don't have a job and waiting for this one isn't going to help you get one.
Remember that no matter how promising an interview is or how many times you are told "we'll let you know shortly," don't stop the job hunt until you have an official job offer in hand. Also, resuming the job search will take your mind off of the waiting.
Best of luck...if not with this interview, with the next one!
