Has anyone heard anything yet from Hartford Hospital? I heard from the Nursing Recruiter and she said that she was shopping my information around to a few hiring managers, but i haven't heard anything yet as of an interview or what not. What about you guys????
I am very dissapointed with Htfd. Shadowed for a day in their Neuro ICU and the RN I shadowed was like wow you could take my pt's right now. When I sat with the manager she stated that she wanted me in their step down unit and when I expressed my disinterest and why she shut me out and actually stopped talking and started working on stuff at her desk (all this took less than 3 minutes) I asked her to please speak with the RN I shadowed and I got no response. I then said I guess I'll show myself out and still nothing, so I left. I went right to HR and they were extremely embaressed with her behavior but didn't seem overly shocked (guess this is a normal thing). Haven't heard anything since and I am going to write them off as a future employer. I don't think I would work for them after this experience anyway. Their loss and mine. Luckily I still have my current CCU job, but was looking for a little more "excitement" and a higher level of accuity.
I'm sorry you had such a bad experience, unfortunately I do not know the manager your spoke to, but I recently left HH to a different state I would not get discourage I worked in the sicu/ticu there for a little over 3 years and I immensely learned so much so I would not cross that hospital out of list.
