Behavioral interview questions specific to nurses:

  1. 0 I had my initial interviews back when I graduated college and was looking for nursing jobs. Had 4 interviews, 3 job offers. Looking back, I could have done better. I had never done behavioral interviews before.

    I do not currently have another interview lined up, but am looking at that possibility. From doing research on this site, i'm gathering I should have a few specific situations in mind that I can talk about to show critical thinking, quick thinking, working in difficult situations, etc. I know not to be general, but to be specific.

    I am trying to be prepared-
    what are some nursing specific behavioral interview questions you have experienced yourself?

    Most websites out there have more general questions, not necessarily nursing specific.

    Thanks!

    " am trying to be prepared-

    1. How do you deal with a difficult family member who won't leave when visiting hours are over?

    2. How do you deal with a verbally abusive physician when you are correctly questioning an order and he says "just do what I tell you to. I'm the doctor!"

    One recent question I had was: "Give me an example of a situation in which you got some constructive criticism and tell me how you used it."

    i was once asked: "what was the biggest mistake you've made in your nsg career; and how did you rectify it?"

    my response: " hmmmm, i've made so many. i need to think about this. "

    DO NOT USE THIS RESPONSE.
