I am a PICU nurse with 7 years of experience (6 years PICU) and recently accepted a travel position after 6 years at the same hospital. I decided to apply for some permanent positions as I'm not sure traveling is for me and I got several calls back. One phone interview went particularly well and I spoke to the manager for almost an hour and a half on the phone. She invited me to the unit to shadow and for a peer interview which I did today. I was supposed to stay the entire shift but after several hours and the peer interview she called me into her office and told me the panel decided I wasn't a good fit for the unit. I was very upset and disappointed as I thought everything went really well. Even the nurse I was shadowing made a comment after I told her saying "I wish they had asked me". I asked the manager for feedback and all she said was they didn't like some of your answers to their questions, although she didn't sound positive on her response to me. I feel very defeated. Any insight anyone can offer? Would it be wrong to email the manager and one other person who interviewed me (another manager) and ask for constructive feedback? I appreciate any info anyone can provide. Thanks!
