    Mine was a week... I went to HR for background check on aug 1, then got an e-mail about my health screening on aug. 8. Someone from HR will call you to make sure that you did receive the e-mail. However, my health screening was scheduled on aug 23.. So that was a long wait. I went back to county hosp. on aug 26 to get my health clearance. Then, I submitted it to the nurse recruiter. For your health screening, don't forget to bring a copy of your MMR and hep B titers, TB skin test result, and CXR result w/in a year (if positive skin test) for TB clearance. Bringing these items with you will speed things up. Hope this info will help...

    CONGRAts to everyone who interviewed, and passed and got offer jobs! ok so Here is an update. After numerous times of calling and leaving messages for the recruiter, I finally emailed her. Which is hilarious, she emailed me back in less than 20 minutes. saying that I was not chosen for the position. I clearly remember her asking me which department I wanted to interview with, and I said can I interview for all three? She replied with NO. Then she went on to say im sure BURN ICU would be cool, thats when I had to interupt her and ask, would they even hire me because I'm a new grad rn. She replied with ugh, They haven't had a training for a new grad for a very long time. But we will see. My opinion the interview went extremely well, the only thing that Lacked was MY NO EXPERIENCE. so basically I was put on the spot for failure,even the nurse recruited knew they DONT HIRE NEW GRAD RN's for the BURN ICU. other ICU's Im sure but, whatever. I have tried calling and asking about other RN positions, but to no answer. Still keeping my head up

    I'm sorry you weren't chosen. When I interviewed for ICU, the nurse managers asked me which unit i want and why. After giving my answer, they said, "Good! That's what we're looking for.." I chose burn as my second choice and they told me that unit is not hiring at all.

    Thats definitely unfortunate to be sent on an interview for a unit that doesn't hire new grads...I'm sorry, don't give up and keep applying there they need nurses thats for sure!

    I've been cleared with my physical and background check since mid august. I'm really hoping that this follows through and that they don't take back their offer.

    WOW! I feel somewhat relieved to know that there are other people waiting for a start date.... I interviewed for ICU on July 27 and got a job offer the following day in CT-ICU.... I completed my health screening on Aug. 26 and have been waiting since for a start date.... I have been soooo worried the past 2 weeks, wondering why they haven't given me a start date.... I called them last Friday and they told me, "just hang in there".. they're waiting for some paper work to be approved... I really want to start soon..... Hope I get to meet you soon, volunteer pioneer and others who got a job offer....
    I'm in CT-ICU TOO! We will be working together! I want to start asap as well, but am really nervous since it's been so long since I've been in school.
    During the interview when they asked me what unit I'd prefer out of the 3, I told them truthfully I wasn't sure, since the ICU I rotated at in nursing school was non-specific. I later said CT because it sounded the most interesting when the managers were describing their units; they didn't let me choose a second or third.. and I was pleasantly surprised that my poor (but honest) answer didn't hurt me in the end.
    I had called them last week too since it was 3 weeks since I had heard anything, and they told me the same thing.. to stay put and that they would give us ample notice prior to getting a start date in place. This is so the people who are working can give a 2 week notice.. I personally am not working, and would like to start asap. I was hoping to start first week of Oct., but that's not looking too bright.
