Okay, I'm at home, right? I'm looking online...reviewing my application statuses for RN positions like I do most of the time; most of them have been sent to the hiring managers for reviewing. I start getting discouraged because I have not received any phone calls from any managers for like a month now. I think my resume is pretty good; just the basics. Then, my cell phone rings...it's a different area code, it's actually the area where I am moving and applying for jobs. And finally! after submitting like 10 applications, a hiring manager calls me! I am freaking out while I am on the phone (internally of course). But, I am trying to stay cool, calm, and collected. You know...I am very energized, interested, and professional, and trying to listen to everything the manager is saying. I start to get nervous and my voice changes and gets shaky; my heart is pounding - oh yeah, I have some good anxiety alright! I think I totally blew it! No interview offer! He said he would call back
He thought I was in the area already (6 hours away!)...but I don't graduate until May 19th! uugggh
. I am sooooo bombed right now. But still excited I got my first call! He was reaaaalllly nice. And the hospital is like 5minutes away from where I am going to be residing, amaaazzzzing! But I'm okay...now, I know what to expect. I do not even remember hearing what position it was for. I applied for an ER and Med-surg position at that facility. I hope he calls back! ahhh! But still, All Glory to GOD! God Bless Ya'll and good luck on you all's future endeavors!

@Brannray - Thanks for the reply! I really hope he calls back soon with some good news. I am definitely looking forward to it now that I have gotten the phone call. It's also now becoming more real that I am about to become a nurse! Also, I told my family about the call and they said it sounded like it was a phone interview. And now that I think about it, it probably was. He was asking questions like what led you to relocate and have you had any other jobs working in the hospital...etc. But, I am definitely going to stay optimistic and see what happens. And yes yes yes...you are right - prayer and also thanks is a must! I also wish you the best of luck with everything. If we are ambitious enough and keep God first, we'll be fine!
