Im not sure what to think or to do...here's my situation. Im a new grad ( May 09) and went on an interview back in July. The interview went great. I was taken around the unit and introduced to all the nurses working that day and shown where my mailbox would be. I was told I would be hearing from the NR in a week due to the nurse manager was on vaction. A week went by and nothing. I finally get a call but it was in regards to something completely different. So I asked if she had heard from the manager on the unit I had interviewed with. She said that she knew she had been on vaction and was busy with work that had piled up while she was gone but she would check and see if she was still interested in me. Another week goes by and no calls so I call and leave a message that I was checking to see if she had heard anything yet. She called me back and said that the manager had told her that she wanted to offer me a spot on the unit. The manager was going to get an approval from the board and HR was starting my back ground check. I was then told I would her back on Monday late or Tuesday with an offer. If I didnt get a call to call her and she would see what the delay was. So again Mon passes, Tuesday passes and no call so I call and leave a message ( do they ever answer a phone ?? ) and no return call yet. Granted I called yesterday at 2 and its only 12:00 the next day but she has always called me back the same day that I have left her a message. My heart is sinking and Im starting to think she may not call me. What could have happened? Why would she get my hopes up?? The most upsetting part is that the hospitals in my area are not hiring new grads right now. With this hospital I would be driving an hr but it worth it to have a job. This is the only hospital there so its not like I can apply at another.Am I crazy or is there still hope that they will call and still offer me a job? Thanks for reading this it really helps to get it out!
