    Registered Nurse Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Penrose St. Francis Hospital (Colorado Springs, CO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through Centura Health website. Within two weeks I received a call from the hiring manager for an interview.
    When I arrived I was greeted by the hiring manager who asked simple get to know me questions. What I previously did, why I'm interested in that floor, etc. She explained a lot about the floor and how they do things, their policies, sick time, vacation, hours, schedule, patient to nurse ratio, acuity levels, etc.. and asked if I was still interested.
    Following speaking with her, I had an interview with two floor hurses. This was a little more nerve racking. They took turns asking me behavioral type questions.
    Following the interview I was told they would be in touch after the weekend.
