So, I graduated in Dec 2010 with my BSN. I had some person family issues and I couldn't take the NCLEX at that time. I took it March 2013 for the first time and passed! yay.
Well, now that I am applying for jobs... I think i've applied to at least 50 different positions (only those that require 0-1 year experience). I've only gotten 1 interview call. I went to that interview and it was the weirdest thing ever.
1st, the job description stated that the position was for a telemetry unit. When I got there, the HR woman asked me why I chose "oncology".... Keep in mind that I'm desperate for a job because no one in my family is working right now. So, I told her why I was interested...even though I didn't even know that it was for an oncology position.
2nd, the job description stated that it was evening shift. The HR lady asked me if I was ok working nights since it's a rotating shift...wth.... and I still agreed to it.
Next, she told me that if the Nurse Manager liked me, I would be hired... So, apparently I now had another interview with the Nurse manager on the same day o_O
I went to meet her. Super nice lady. Agreed with everything I said. Laughed at my jokes. Complemented me repeatedly. Gave me a tour of the unit. Then, she told me that I was going to be interviewed by 2 charge nurses. *headdesk*....
So, I went and waited in this room for about 15 mins and the 2 charge nurses walked in.
Started asking me questions. And 1 of them kept challenging my answers because apparently they were too nice. And they all kept asking me what I would do if the doctors yelled at me for no reason...becuz that happens a lot. Not only that, they asked me if I was married (made a joke about how it would be ok for me to work night shift since I wasn't). Asked me how old I was and if I had any siblings...
Towards the end they all made it seem like I had the job. They welcomed me and congratulated me. The Nurse manager told me that she still had a few people to interview but I should stay positive and walked me out to the main entrance of the building from her office.
It's been a week and I haven't heard anything back. What am I supposed to do? Should I call now? I sent thank you letters. Or do I wait another week? Or are these people just not interested?
I'm so confused.
