Hello! I recently graduated from nursing school and am working as a nurse in a doctor's office but have always wants to be a psychiatric nurse. I applied to a few new grad positions at a few different psychiatric hospitals. It is been a few days and I haven't heard anything. I know for most it takes a long time(weeks to months) but I thought due to the fact psych is a specialty and not as many people want to go into it I thought I would hear back fairly quickly. I plan on calling to check up on my application status about a week after I applied but I am curious when I should start to be be concerned. How long did it take you all to land a job in psych? Thank you for any input!
