My cousin graduated back in the glory days of nursing when nursing jobs were not as competitive and hospitals practically begged nursing students to come work for them, so anything he says I take with a grain of salt!. He said that if you've submitted an application and resume and you get a callback for an interview, its more than likely the employer is already prepared to hire you and that the interview is more of a formality than anything. I find this pretty unbelieveable...especially in this job market! However, he went on to say if they ask you to bring paperwork (i.e. nursing license, physical, multiple forms of photo ID, references, SS card, ect..) on the interview, then that is definitely a sign of impending employment. He reasoned that they wouldn't ask for all those things upfront if they didn't believe that there was a high chance they would hire you. Has that been anyone's experience or do you think asking for those documents is standard ?
