Advice for interview for CNA position on Cardiac

  1. I'm reposting my question here, hoping maybe I can get some advice from those in this section

    Hi All,

    I'm a student nurse who just got two calls about an interview for a dream job of mine, working as a care aid (hospital doesn't actually require CNA, but I'm in the process of getting one) on the Cardiac Unit. I've been volunteering there for about 6 months, and I love it there. I'm very concerned that I may have missed my chance because I missed the phone calls twice for the interview - I'm in an all day CNA training class and my stupid cell didn't alert me to my messages. But if I do still have a chance, I'd like to do well with this interview, so I wanted to ask everyone here for their advice. I've never had a serious interview for a serious hospital position like this before, so I feel a little concerned. I have the perfect outfit picked out, I'm just wondering what to say lol Will they ask me any questions pertaining to the unit itself, or technical info about the position or the hospital. What can I expect? What can I say to make myself stand out as the best candidate? What things should I know to prove to them I've done my homework and I'd be right for this position? Also, any advice regarding this position, should I be fortunate enough to get it, would be appreciated.

    Thanks for all thoughts!

    i don't have much to offer, but in your post you stated that you've volunteered on that floor for 6 months, so that shows them the huge interest you have and dedication since all you've done is volunteer work.

    good luck and let us know how it went with the job offer
