    I too would give it 2-3 days, Excellent advice to go to nurse manager of unit. If you do not know who it is do not hesitate to ask and then call, visit to introduce yourself. Let them know that you have just submitted an application, wouldn't hurt to have a resume handy, just in case. You may get hired right then.

    this is totally worse than waiting for the guy you like to call you..
    sooooooooooo grade 7 of me I know
    ah well ,I'll see what if anything happens in the next few days and then go from there, thanks for indulging my lack of patience, is very sweet
    ironically enough, work was tolerable last night...whats up with that?
    perhaps that I'm seeing some kind of a light at the end of the tunnel (ie a way out)
    actually thought "wow I might really miss this place if i go"
    but then I snapped back to reality and well thats that
    Keeping my fingers crossed for ya Wendy!

    Did you include any of those pics I resized and sent ya? Those would really seal the deal for you! Especially all those booty shots!

    What do you mean that you are NOT patient Wendy???? WE WOULD NEVER GUESS THAT!!!

    Seriously, I would go to the nurse manager of the unit you are looking at also; I've both seen and heard of HR ignoring or otherwise missing some excellent job applicants for not only my unit but also other hospitals and units. And I'd give it the 3 daytime period.

    Good luck, Wendy! You KNOW you are worth better treatment than what you are currently getting!

    I recieved some good advice on helping with the wait and dealing with the current job situation while waiting.........keep your eye on the light.....the light at the end of the tunnel. All will be well. You have made a decision now continue on. I had short timers syndrome so bad I could hardly wait to get out but her words kept ringing though my ears. helped alot. Good luck Remember the Robin Williams movie where he could see past what was in front of him and look beyond it. God I loved that scene

    I'm waiting to hear about a J O B

    whaddya mean I'm not patient?
    actually I'm pretty calm about the whole thing, specially since I've had a very "interesting" 2 nights at work...

    Good luck Wendy. They're crazy for not calling you already!! I got my job by calling the NM when I heard there was a position. Got an interview within days and hired right away. This was AFTER being ignored by HR forever. Good luck!
