Have applied for advertised openings in critical care at four major systems in the Detroit area--in one case, got a call from Human Resources THREE HOURS after submitting an online application! But since then, nothing. Are hospitals posting positions but only hiring in-house? Anybody know? I also work with an agency and I'm waiting for a phone interview from a fifth system that posted an available contract--what gives? It's not like I have any strikes against me re: nursing license, pending criminal investigations, etc. and I have plenty of experience. Maybe I'm just impatient?
