    Orientation next Tuesday. Then apparently my supervisor, the administrator, will be out on vacation so it's looking like a week after that.

    I hope you hear back soon. The waiting is nerve wracking.

    No he did not.

    Here's the short version: Great interview! They double teamed me with the Administrator and nurse manager. The interview was very informative, all three of us were asking good questions and getting good answers. I was with them for about an hour. Afterwards I went straight to the post office and mailed a handwritten thank you card to each of them. At the end of the interview he said he would get back to me in a couple of days.

    On day 3 I had not heard from him so I sent an email that said I had thought about a few questions on the interview, one of which I did not think I fully answered, blah blah blah. Then reiterated my sincere interest in working on their home health team.

    The next day I had an email back from him saying thank you for my interest and he was VERY interested in what I could bring to their team and could I please wait until next week as he was tying up some loose ends. I responded with a short email saying of course I would and to enjoy the sunshine over the weekend.

    I did not hear from him the whole week so I wrote a very short email that said, "touching base" (in the subject line) and "I'm still interested" as the message. He wrote back moments later and said (I'm quoting), "We are too! I should be able to contact you later today after I work out a couple of things we have in the works. Thanks for contacting me."

    I waited all day Friday and he didn't call. Should I call him Monday? I don't think I should send another email.

    This is forms home health case manager position. I know the job requires initiative so I'm thinking if I call him Monday I'm showing initiative and interest. I also exhibited patience as its been almost 2 weeks since the interview. What do you guys think? I don't want to blow it, but I don't want to lose it.

    Opinions please?
    Il be praying for. Think positive you can get that.

    Oh that is so exciting. Starting next week is awesome, even if it is just for orientation.
    I heard back that I should hear the next step by the end of the week. No job offer yet but fingers crossed it will be by the end of the week. They are just tieing up lose ends.

    That sounds like good news for you!

    I pushed the Administrator a little, I sent an email letting him know which day I would be doing orientation and asking if he would like to talk about a schedule at that time. I just received his reply stating he asked the Nurse Mgr to set me up for training. This is my last week of freedom, I should go do something!

    I'm crossing my fingers for you; it does sound like good news though, just slow.
