ER Nurse Interview Questions

"As an emergency room nurse, you will be expected to perform professionally and diligently in the heart of chaos. By receiving your certification from the BCEN, employers know that you possess the technical skills to treat trauma and injury, but the interview process defines whether you have the commitment to do so. Expect to describe how you plan to be a team player, dedicate yourself to providing excellent customer service, and deal with difficult patient situations. Employers are looking for candidates who are passionate in serving their community, so come with a motivated and service-oriented attitude."

The questions posed were pageant quality; What is your 5 year plan? The 2 interviewers spoke at length about their over 20 years tenure in the same department and had no interest in my academic preparation, skillset, interest that I had in Emergency nursing, or my professional affiliations. They were over 1/2 hour late to the interview, and did not read or even glance at the resume I provided. Half way thru the interview, one of them suggested that I join 'an organization called the ENA' which I had been a member of for over a year. They were not interested in my certifications and spent about 20 seconds on my prior military experience. In this case, I feel I may have dodged a bullet. This is a large ER with 125 staff and has a reputation for staff churn.
