    I got an interview email too...what I got from it was that it was going to be a panel interview with five managers? Good luck to us all...

    Yeah, my email said that it would be a 30 min interview with a panel of 5 managers from the various Scripps hospitals.

    Anyone know what types of questions they might be asking us?

    Just got the email for an interview! From what I've heard it's like a big cattle call with various tables representing various departments.
    Thank you so much for this bit of information. I was wondering how so many of us have the same interview time!

    No problem

    I graduated a year later than my original cohort so I have heard a lot of interview situations for all the major SD hospitals.

    I believe Scripps asks personality and "situation" type questions: name a time you disagreed or had a conflict with a coworker and how you handled it; your strengths; your 5 year plan, etc.

    Scripps does not have inpatient peds.
    Thank you! I just got my email today for an interview on the 6th but I am passing it up for someone who really does have an interest in adult care. Thanks.

    I just got an interview email for June 4th too!

    OMG! I just read my email. I have an interview on June 6th at 12:30. I can only pray that I will take my NCLEX at the end of July. My school won't post the BSN until July 2nd. I've heard that the turn-around time with the BSN to approve testing takes from 3-6 weeks. That would be a bummer if I miss the Aug 13th deadline. Oh well, not much I can do but keep positive. Good luck to everyone! And don't despair if you haven't rec'd an interview email, yet. Give it another week.

    Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!

    I graduated this past Saturday and already received my authorization to test and have already signed up for Nclex. It shouldn't be a problem for you. Good luck.

    Got the interview email as well. Had a couple classmates that were internal candidates the last time around. None had RN license at the time of interview and were not offered jobs. I wasn't fortunate for a first round interview last time, so hoping for the best on June 4th.

    What if you've never disagreed or had any conflict with a coworker cause you "get along with everyone," like I do? Maybe say something like, "If I did have a conflict with a coworker, I'd ask to speak to them in private to resolve the issue..." Anyone have other ideas?

    The best advice I can give is to be honest and be yourself....have you ever resolved a conflict for others? I bet you're a good communicator and that's why you do not have conflicts with others...so say that

    Thanks for the suggestion BooBear!

    Anyone else who interviewed last time have any tips as to what they're looking for? Are they looking for strong customer service & empathy/compassion, or more of being a strong leader and assertiveness type stuff?

    Good luck to us all who interview tomorrow and next week!
