HI! I'm a soon to be new grad who already has two interviews lined up for next week. Does anyone have any interview tips or good questions that I could ask during my interviews? The interviews are in the emergency department and ICU of a children's hospital. I am so nervous! I was a stay at home mom before nursing school and I can't even remember the last interview I went on. I'm beginning to feel overwhelmed! I would appreciate any tips or questions. I want to make a good, latsing impression. Thanks so much!!!!!

Hi! Just had my first interview last Friday - similar situation, so understand your concerns, excitement, etc. I spent a few hours on here reading through similar posts, and then reviewing the website (job description, mission statement, etc.) of the hospital I was applying to. There is a long post that is stickied at the top of the Careers page that has many good websites and other advice in them.
I guess my two biggest pieces of advice are: You sucessfully made it through school while juggling kids and other responsibilites. Be proud of that, and remember that was a valuable life experience that you will continue to draw on through the interview and your new job! Secondly, remember to send a thank-you note to the interviewer(s) - it is a second chance to create a good impression.
Good-luck to you, and I hope all goes well!
