As nurses spend the majority of their days interacting with patients, employers are looking for candidates who can demonstrate strong interpersonal, teamwork, and conflict-management skills. Come ready to discuss a time you handled a tense patient or excelled under pressure. Employers will also expect candidates to have a robust knowledge of nursing practices, so expect to be quizzed on proper medical procedure and patient handling.
If you are completely overwhelmed during the day with multiple discharges and admissions, tell me how you would prioritize your day.
I was somewhat stumped. Having such little information, I was left to say that I would simply prioritize based on the patients' acuity as well as do my best to ensure that anything I was doing wouldn't throw off the schedule of any other department in the hospital. I'm not sure how it went over. We'll see. It's only been a day and I haven't been contacted about an offer or anything to the contrary. But I left with generally positive feelings about the interview.
