*I was asked what I thought would be my biggest challenge from NS to GN/RN position.
*I was then asked how I was going to resolve that issue when I started.
*I was asked what I would do in 3 scenerio type situations.
*I was asked where I wanted to be in 5 years (and no, the correct answer is not always right there in the position you are applying for).
*I was asked what my clinical instructors would say about me if she was to call one right now (I did about 75% of my clinicals on this particular floor with the same instructor).
*She asked me my biggest challenge in NS and how I was able to resolve that challenge.
*She has asked me what I enjoyed the most about nursing school
. She also asked me what I liked least about NS.
*I was asked my biggest weakness and how could/would I resolve that weakness on the unit.
*I was asked what my biggest strength was and how I could/would use that on the unit.
*I was asked how I would deal with a co-worker that did something horribly wrong to a patient and violated P&P and how I would handle the post conflict it would cause on the unit if I was(did) to report the situation.
*We discussed conflict issues on the unit. We also discussed teamwork. We talked very briefly about how NS did not prepare me for the world to come that was just a step in the big huge process of being an RN. We talked a lot about the support groups the hospital has for GN's and how she felt those were very valuable.
*We also discussed my training, orientation and classes I would be taking over the next 90 days.
*I was asked the normal questions - can you work nights, weekends, holidays, etc....
That pretty much sums it up - I work on this unit but I was put through the same interview as all GN/RN's are put through.
