Hi, I just need help, I been working as PRN (LTC setting) for the past 3 months and not getting enough hours from it to pay bills, sometimes there are weeks that i never got called at all. so I continue looking for Full-time job or part-time job, then this Full time job came, it's in rehabilitation center, got interviewed twice and it seems turn out fine, the hiring manager is very nice and she forwarded the process to the HR, then the HR realized that i'm a new grad with only 3 months experience from my current job, so they said i need to do a different process as a NEW GRAD nurse, I need to submit clinical reference forms and transcript of records in sealed envelop, since I'm from other country the process takes longer, it took 2 weeks for my Clinical Instructor to return the requested form ( from the day they told me i need to do the new grad route). My transcript of record are still on the way, it may take another 5 days to get here. HR told me that the transcript is only for record purpose and if they received the forms we can go ahead with the hiring process.They got the forms 2 days ago, but today they said they need to wait for the transcript (different from what they said before), I don't wanna be rude and rush them because it's not their fault why the completion of requirements take longer, not my fault either, it's just im from other country and getting the needed documents is not that easy
My problem is the 2nd job that i applied for is a School Nurse in a charter school, went for interview 2 days ago and seems like it went well too, today the Nurse Supervisor called me and they want to hire me. She told me to call certain person to set an appointment to start the hiring process, document signing etc. Did not asked me if i accept it or not but said they are excited to have me, i don't know what to say, so I said if I can just call the girl after I discuss the things with my husband. she said it's fine. Today is Friday.
So now i feel like i need to return the call by Monday, if I accept this job and then suddenly the full time job called and made the offer after they received my transcript, I'm afraid that I'm already stuck with the part time. the part time schedule is Tuesday and Thursday and 1 day that is flexible, while the full time is 3 days a week 7a-7p, self scheduling.
the hiring manager said it's self scheduling, do you think i can accept the part time now then if the full time made the offer just let them know im not available on tues & thurs but willing to work any day of the week.
sorry if my question sounds dumb, i just don't really know how this work and what to do on this situation, im afraid to turn down the part time then the full time won't offer me the job in the end then i have none ( its very important to me to get the a permanent job to pay bills). im afraid getting the part time then, the fulltime offer the job, but my schedule will be conflict and i cannot leave the part time after being hired for 2 weeks, its not good for my resume and for the person who recommend me.
if you are in my situation what you gonna do?
