So, I had a great interview with a DON of an intermediate med floor on Friday for a general position on her floor. By the end of the interview, she had told me that there would be a per diem position posted and and was kind of offering me the position unofficially. Fast forward to Friday night - she had called my cell phone and left a voice mail to confirm that I would apply to the posted position on the job website so that she would be able to "take the next steps". Sounds pretty promising, right? I call her on Monday to follow up, and told her that there was no such position posted, and what should I do. And she seemed super distracted and kinda forgot she had left me a voice mail on Friday, and the conversation as a whole left me feeling a bit unsettled. I genuinely believe that she was probably super busy and kind of had her mind on other things.
This position is at a large teaching hospital and I do NOT want to just let this go, but if there's no position posted - then I can't really be hired. Do I email this DON today or just wait for a position to be posted and then kind of email her then? I am really terrible at being patient and would so love this job.
