Nursing Interview

Nursing
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at US Air Force.

Interview Details – I would say the most important thing after getting all your education, license, etc... Is to make sure you have made connections with prior military nurses and had them wright you a recommendation. If you do nothing else that was the key for me. I was turned down the first time, then my friend from work wrote me a recommendation.

Negotiation Details – there was none except getting the position and location. Salary and benefits are set.
