This is a discussion on "Interviewed" a few days ago... am I hired? in Nursing Career Advice ... I'm a patient care intern/tech (PCI) for a hospital and have worked there for a year.. I applied to...
I'm a patient care intern/tech (PCI) for a hospital and have worked there for a year.. I applied to the organ transplant unit at the same hospital (different floor) the day I graduated and got a call the very next day to schedule an interview.I also did a year of clinicals on the unit and fell in love with it! I did a semester of med/surg and my Capstone (senior final clinical) on the unit.
When I got to my interview, the manager on the floor talked to me about the patient acuity and population, the doctor/nurse relationship on the floor, how the nurses schedule, the orientation process, etc. She walked me around the unit and introduced me to some of the staff.
Weird part? She NEVER asked any interview questions!! Not one! Just the "do you have any questions for me?" question. She asked if I had passed my boards and I said, '' I have not scheduled to take the boards yet, I'm still waiting on my ATT number. I applied, but wasn't expecting a call so soon." And she said that since I work as a PCI, I am treated a little differently.. that I could work as a tech on the floor until I take my boards. She also wanted me to come in next week to shadow with a nurse and then email her after to let her know how it went and if I still want to work for the floor. She said that since I did 2 clinicals on the floor and still wanna work there, she knows that I already have a special place in my heart for these patients and would be a good fit for the floor.
So she never said whether or not I was hired or what, so I emailed her thanking her for the interview and asked when I would know if I had the position on the floor? She never responded, so I guess I'll email her again after I shadow.. What does this mean?
