Thanks Emily! Those are the things I would like to be a little more prepared to answer, so I dont say "uhhhhh, let me think" arg sounds horrible. The only problem Is since I havent worked in the hospital except a minimal amount doing NAa I cant think of an ethical issue that I was faced with...
arg except one, and I doubt I should mention it.
Once when I was an NA I observed a RN going into each room and asking about pain and a couple questions and then she went out and wrote up her full assessment. Since I was an NA and not an RN or a fulltime employee I didnt say anything at the time. I did however act a little "pissy" towards her for the first few hours because I was so upset this was the field Im going into and this was to me poor (to say the least) nursing. I was also upset to find she was also a charge nurse on another floor.
But she was very helpful to me all day so I had to be nice eventually and she ended up giving me a complement later (i found out weeks later) to my supervisior. But that experience haunted me and I have since said something to so people at the hospital. But I was too afraid at the time to be involved in something before my career started. If I happen to work on same floor or near her I will say something. But how could I say I saw something unethical and did nothing? How would I respond to that? arg..
I suppose I can try to think of something in my other jobs, but thats the only one I have seen in this field.
any other advice anyone?

Some interviews use behavioral type questions to find out if you are indeed what they are looking for. Some examples of those questions include.. tell me about a time when you were faced with an ethical dilemma? or Tell me about a time when you needed to prioritize? or Tell me about a time when you did not get along with a coworker? What did you do with that? How did it work out for you? These are examples that I had for two of my interviews. Just try to think of past experiences so you are prepared to give examples in an interview.
