I  am a BSN student graduating in May 2020. I  have begun applying for different hospitals and have interviews scheduled for this week. However, one of the hospitals I  applied to (dream hospital to work at) said that they will not begin doing interviews until the end of march/early april. What happens if I  get an offer from one of the hospitals I interview with this week and the deadline to accept is before I  even interview with the other hospital? Can I  back out if I accept the offer?

Yes you can, as long as you haven’t started the job yet. Accept any job you get, and if something better comes along then great. Don’t blow you chance at a job, when this other hospital may not even offer you a interview.

When I was a freshly minted BSN, the children's hospital had an amazing residency but they required (what I considered to be) a letter humbling myself to them, indicating why they were the best place to be and how lucky I would be if I got one of the 30 or so spaces. And the residency didn't start for almost six months.

In retrospect I might have been a tetch prideful.

Flash forward. I did not wait out the time between December and May. And that has made all the difference, at least in why I'm not an acute care nurse.

If this is what you really want, what would make you a stronger candidate? Find that and do that. It may be actually getting some experience somewhere.

Best of luck.
