Hello everyone. I've been a lurker on the allnurses site since I was in nursing school
(I graduated w my BSN this past May). I finally got an interview at the local health department in my town. The interview went great, lasted 45 minutes. I interviewed with two nursing supervisors at the facility. They were both very friendly and nice, helpful all things good. This took place last Friday on August 17th.
At the end of the interview, they told me they would get back to me with either a yes or a no on Monday or Tuesday as well as if I had ANY questions to feel free to contact them with them. I also had emailed one of them my resume right after I had made my interview appointment in which she emailed me back within about 30 mins with a thank you. As of now I still haven't heard anything back.
I called one of the nursing supervisors on Wednesday and left a message saying that I am still very interested in the position and calling about the status of the position. The voicemail was from this past Friday saying that she would be out of the office in meetings all day and that she would be checking all of her messages throughout the day ... this makes me think something is up, either illness or something.
Then yesterday (Thursday) I called the other woman that I interviewed in front of and left a voicemail asking the same thing. As of now it is right past noon, and I still have yet to hear anything back. I've been going over and over things trying to decipher want it means.
I guess my question is what would you think? Would you give up? Would you call one more time, maybe on Monday? Or maybe send an email?
I really want this position, and I don't want to give up. I would just like to hear something, after how nice they were and them saying they would call me no matter if yes or no on the position, I would hope they weren't just ignoring me and making me look a fool. Thank you so much for your time everyone, I sincerely appreciate it!!
