Help with interview please

  1. Hello! This is my first post, although I have been lurking for awhile. I am 28, married, and have a 14 month old son. I will start an accelerated BSN program in January (only one more prereq to go!).

    Next week I have an interview for the Nursing Service Scholarship that the College of Nursing and the hospital coordinate. If offerred to me, they will pay for my whole tuition in exchange for working for the hospital after graduation. The interview will be conducted by 2 professors from the college and 2 nurse managers from the hospital. I am not sure what to expect. I had an interview for admission into the program and had all the normal questions asked...why I want to be a nurse, change of careers, am I aware how involved the program is, etc. Has anyone had an interview for this type of scholarship? Think I will get the same questions I had during the admission interview? My mother is a nurse and she does not know what the nurse managers would ask given that I am not a nurse yet. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
