    Good luck Jess, don't forget, its not all about what you know, you must also be comfortable with what you don't know!

    Nobody can have all the answers but if you can show that you know WHERE to find those answers (policy manuals, research, journals, not afraid to ask questions) then your future employer will have a better understanding of how you will make your practice safe & professional. Don't be afraid to say you don't know it all (especially if this is a new area for you in diabetes). Also, know something about the environment you are applying to, how they manage the ward, etc (it may be a little late now) but preparation is the key! Let us know if you got the job. Cheers
