I am so bewildered by something that just happened-I interviewed at 2 places as an LPN. One at a psych facility, another a nursing home. The pysch facility's DON assured me verbally that theyd make me an offer and she even had me come in and take a drug screen in the office, copied my SS card, license. Said the offer would be formalized after the drug screen results.That was three days ago. In the mean time, 2 days ago, I got a job offer for a nursing home that I wasnt crazy about since it was only PRN. I told HR that I'd like a day or 2 to think it over and asked him if I could get back to him in a day or two. He said Fine. Well, I called him back today to accept their PRN offer since the DOn from the other psych place still hasnt formally offered me the job. To my dismay, when I told the guy I accepted his offer, he said, "well, now its contingent because we had to keep interviewing others. You have to move very quickly in healthcare.I will try and fight for you, tell me why you want this position? ". he basically said the job offer they made me was no longer valid since I hadnt accepted it right away! It seems a bit unprofessional to me that they'd turn around and do that, especially after he said it was ok if i thought about it a day or 2.Any thoughts?
Now I am not sure I have a job anywhere, cuz the one at the pysch place was just a verbal assurance that Id get an offer, but I have yet to hear from them, even after I left a message yesterday asking them to confirm/finalize it.
