    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care.

    Interview

    There were two phone interviews, one brief one with HR and then an extended one hour phone call with the unit manager. Following this, I interviewed almost two hours in person with the manager, two assistant managers, and a floor nurse. The standard interview questions are tiring and laborious. To prepare, think of specific events that you can use to tell about your RN experiences.
