Got a job interview!!


You know how thin, and far between those babies are!! So, I got a call on Wednesday, from Hoag hospital asking if I was STILL interested in the Stroke unit??? Since neuro, and older folks are my fave, I was totally excited! And then she asked if I could come in THAT day. So I cleared away ALLLL my other interviews I had that day *wink, wink* and went in. I'm telling you, these two women were the kindest and funnest interviewers I have EVER met! (ok, so I've only had 3 interviews so far, but still...) It went very well. I feel like I did fine on the questions, though I was a bit slow on one of the scenario questions. All in all, I walked away very hopeful. We won't be called until "before Christmas", so I've got my waiting room clothes on in the meantime. The only bad thing is that I believe.... it won't begin until Feb, because it's part of a new grad program. But I also need to take a few classes (you know...those one day certification classes...aaaaand they are darned expensive!) and tests. It does scare me that I have to take an EKG test, but at least I have time to study for it, and my friend Shruti took it, and said she would help me.


So...here I go again...back in the waiting room! Thanks for any and all prayers!

YEAH on the job interview!! Crossing my fingers and toes here and saying a prayer that they call you back! I just had to retake a telemetry class last year. I had not looked at the stuff in 8 yrs... if I can do it you can do it!!!! Good luck..

Good luck! I hope they call you, and, if you need more certifications the hospital should pay for it.:)

Good luck!! I have a feeling you got it.. Neuro is awesome.. What a great start it would be!!
Let us know when you get the "you got it"Call.. and remember you have something that some other new grads dont...life experience, maturity...
and I believe interviewers see that as a huge asset..
