    I've always been tempted to say "world domination".

    It's a stupid question and shouldn't be asked. Who on earth knows where they will be in 5-10 years time? I actually said to an interviewer once I didn't have a crystal ball and couldn't tell them! They just laughed! I just said I hoped to continue in my practice as a RN, continue studying in various areas, etc.
    Just say you hope to further advance ur career by studying (fill in blank), attend professional development seminars, etc.
    I wouldn't elaborate too much on this question - give a short, precise answer then move on.

    Again, thanks for all of the creative responses! I did think to throw in "world domination" like you suggested CraigRN just to break the ice....but I was asked NONE of the questions I prepared for!!! I was asked numerous "tell me about a time when" but the situations questions I prepared for were not asked. I think I fumbled through a few of them, but managed to work in the ways that may set me aside from the other applicants. My interviewer had a similar background in terms of my bachelors in Sociology so I think that would good to have something in common. Now, I just sit, wait & pray for the best!!

    I'm getting ready to have my first nursing interview & I am preparing for any questions I may be asked....I am prepared to discuss what my 5 year goal is, but am stumped on a 10 year goal! Do they want to know about my personal life (married/kids) or strictly professional? Help! I don't want to say charge nurse/nurse manager because it will look like I'm shooting to take their job right?
    I thought everyone just said they are going to be a CRNA.
