I interviewed for a position in my hospitals MICU. I thought it went pretty well, but I know there were lots of applicants and most have more nursing experience than me. I was taught in nursing school that it's a good idea to follow up with a "thank you" email or letter. The NM said she would know by this monday or tuesday so a letter is out of the question b/c she'd never get it in time. She told me that she doesn't call, the nurse recruitor would call if I got offered the position. I was wondering if any of you think an e-mail is appropriate or annoying. I want to do something one last time to stand out, but I'm not sure if its appropriate. Any advice on what you did, or if you're a manager, please let me know what stands out to you. Thanks!

I wouldn't send an email. If you haven't heard anything by Wednesday I would call the manager and check on things.

I sent an email to the shift supervisor that interviewed me recently. I have no idea if it helped, but I got the job so... I don't know why it wouldn't be appropriate?? Thank you letters have always been a standard of professionalism after an interview, so why is an email different. Most corporate communications are strictly eletronic these days. Just tell them thay you're being 'green'. lol
