    I called HR this morning and got an automated message stating that I must check online to follow up on my application which takes me back to square one.

    However, I managed to find the nursing recruiter's email and I plan to email her expressing my interest!! I hope she replies and this takes me a step further! After a few days I think I'm gonna drop by the hospital and introduce myself!

    Thanks you guys for giving me the courage. I'm so new to this and I don't want to make a horrible mistake. I never really sat there and thought about how my application just can get lost with all the others especially since its online. I really understand now that I have to set myself apart from all the others and make myself known. You have all helped me so much! I will keep you updated on how it all goes! Thank you again!

    Oh great idea! My dream job actually tells you not to come up to the hospital (go figure that you must sit and WAIT). I am so glad that things are kind of moving along and hopefully you will be getting some good news or at least some good information! Please do keep us updated.

    This is what multiple hospitals told me to do yesterday when I called them to get a status update . I still plan on calling them every week or two. One representative gave me more info than the online status showed, so maybe I will have better luck the next time I call.
