How soon do you follow up with a potential employer after a job fair?

I attended a nurses job fair where the unit director asked me to apply and allow her to look over my application. It wasn't actually an interview, we just got to talking at the job fair and she said she would be interested in having me. I have applied but have not heard back from her. It has been 4 days. Is it okay to call her? How long should I wait, and what should I say? I've never had to follow up with any job in the past, and this is new to me. Thank you all in advance.

You thanked us for reading, and perhaps answering your concern. Do the same for her. Write a letter thanking her for considering your application. Be sure to mention that you look forward to hearing from her. Good luck!

One more day then call. Don't sound desperate just maybe "I just wanted to know if a decision has been made" something along that lines. Oh YEA, its ALWAYS important to write a thank you note for future employees!
