We have started the ball rolling and I have applied to several positions in the hospitals mentioned. I am not a nurse yet! My question is are the HR offices like up in the NYC area where you either need to know someone or call the offices a few times to get your application noticed? I mentioned several times on the app. & resume that I will be relocating the 27th of this month. How long after applying should I call? is a week good? I basicly dont want my app. to be lost in the HR black hole. any suggestions will be welcomed.

I've heard that you need to know someone.
I called WakeMed and they basically told me not to call back.

I've spoken with people who said they called them a year after they applied and one lady took a job in housekeeping just to get in the door and transfer.

Also, find out the manager name of the department you want to work in-- med-surg, tele, etc. and call them directly. Sound enthusiastic and let them know you put in a resume w/ HR. Often they'll call to HR for it. Ask about nurse internships , too, that are popular now w/ most hospitals. I'd also say to start a large hospital first-- transitioning later to a small place compared to the other way around is easier.
