so i had an interview at a children's psychiatric hospital run by new york state. in short, the interview went great, i was offered the full-time position exactly a week later, and have never heard back.
the initial call took place on 4/20 and she said "i'm going to call you back next week once i talk to HR to find out if it is a day or evening position." i was so happy because i'm really sick of being a school nurse and was really excited about this opportunity. working for the state seemed like a great idea because the salary is decent and the benefits are awesome. i also want to get into psychiatry because i am planning on becoming a psych NP.
anyway, long story short, this director of nursing never called me back. it has now been 2 weeks since her initial call. i called back last tuesday to "follow up" and left a message and never got a call back.
what are your opinions on this? is this just the state being the state and taking their sweet time? or did it fall through and should i give up hope? i just find it to be incredibly bizarre because i was OFFERED THE JOB!!!! at least have your secretary send me an email to tell me to forget it. how unprofessional and rude.
