Hey everyone I'll try to make this long story as short as possible. So I've recently graduated with me ADN this past May and was able to pass my nclex-RN exam July 6, 2013. Within my last med-surg rotation on an ICU step down unit, the manager noticed me and mentioned me to my teacher. I took that opportunity to stay in contact with her throughout my last semester of the nursing program.My email consisted of letting her know how much I enjoyed her unit. Throughout each email I always kept it professional, Never asking to be hired once I became an RN, just always stating "I look forward to updating you upon successful completion of my NCLEX-RN". She mentioned in an email to "consider them once I begin my job search". I updated her when I graduated letting her know I was studying for boards.
So I recently did my usual update, informing her that I am an official RN, an this is where I went out on a limb an told her "if there are any current positions I may qualify for I would be delighted to be considered a possible candidate". Quickly she responded. "I do have a full time day position, apply online an I'll look for you". I instantly applied and informed her my app. was submitted. I mentioned that I look forward to hearing from her and she emailed back "me too". So a day after I noticed my app status changed to "not accepting new grads" so I emailed her and asked "does this concern eliminate my possibility of being a candidate and if so thank you for your time to date. If not, when should I expect to hear from you? She quickly responded stating "I requested the status be changed to accept new grads. Let me get with recruiting
". I tald her thank you for the excellent news and I look forward to meeting her, she replied "hope to see you soon". Sorry for the long story but What do you guys think? My mom tells me I have the job and that this process takes a while unlike your typical "mall job". Do you guys think I'm getting the run-around? or it this how things happen in the hospital? I look forward to all the feedback from my allnurses family!!!
