So I'm a new RN graduate(Aug 12') I did a peds practicum and loved it! When the time came for me to graduate and sit for the NCLEX the hospital went on a 3 month hiring freeze. I was guaranteed a position if I could " wait it out". The freeze was up in January 2013 and the director of the department contacted me and said the census was low on the floor so she could not open me a position but she would talk to another director to open me a position and I could work on that floor until Peds could find the need for a new nurse. Well I got a call on 1-31 for a medsurg interview. The next day the Peds director contacted me to say a nurse was leaving and she would request the new position on Monday 2-4. I went to the dept and did my "peer interview" so now I'm just WAITING for the position to post online so I can officially apply... This is taking forever and in the mean time I turned down a position at a LTC facility. Does this seem promising? I'm so worried its not going to happen or the nurse will decide she's not leaving... Anyone else had something similar happen???
