    I stayed in scrubs! I brought interview clothing but the unit was so crazy and I didn't want to make the nurse manager wait more ya know? They told me I would hear back within two weeks. The shadowing part was awesome and I loved it, the interview was a little short but that was probably also due to the nuttiness of the unit haha

    ahh okay! That def makes sense! I'm so glad you enjoyed the unit and I really really hope it works out for you!! I wasn't planning on taking interview clothing but maybe I should just in case! I'm so so so excited to shadow and see how the unit is but I'm very nervous about the interview part! 2 weeks is reasonable! Good luck to you!!

    I just had my interview today! I absolutely LOVED the hospital and the unit where I shadowed! My interview was also very short ( I don't know how I feel about this)! The nurse manager was great! They didn't mention when I would hear back just said that I was the last interview for them and hopefully soon! I guess the waiting game starts again

    I heard back today and I didn't get it . They ended up taking a Penn student who is a CNA on the floor. But they told me to email when I graduate so at least there's that!
