Hey, i applied for a nicu position at a well known hospital. Finally 6 months later received an interview. I believe it went very well. Hr told me my pay and all. Nurse manager gave me a tour of the unit and had me meet potential co workers and doctors. Even spoke to me about orientation. Its been over a week and havent heard back from the hospital. Sent thank you emails as well. I guess im just feeling defeated because ive been applying for a rn position for over 6 months and nothing has happened. Just want to finally be working and put my license to use. Should i follow up with hr again after i called once, i hate to be a pest!

I always tell people to call back and see how things are going.

I called this morning and another said the recruiter for hr will call me back and he never did.

my aunt also works on the unit and when i left the interview called me saying the mangers loved me, but still no response back from hr

I would give it time, I know the waiting can be very frustrating, but you don't want to come of as inpatient or needy. If you have the nurse recruiter's , or more importantly the nurse managers email send her an email saying thank you again and you were just wondering if she had made a hiring decision, but I would give it at least another week before doing so.

Good luck!

It took 2.5 weeks before I got the job offer I wanted after an interview. Some hospitals are very slow. I emailed twice letting the manager know my interest so I wasn't forgotten. I think I was the first interviewee. I did call HR once to inquire if the position was filled after 2 weeks.

Yay congrats!!! You will love the NICU i bet!! I just got hired at a Children's Hospital after trying for years, and I too am so nervous and excited. Had similar situation where it took forever (5 weeks from my first interview) to hear, after two interviews and a shadow experience, and then finally reference checks!!

Good luck with the new job!
