Just want to know if any of you had to go through an interview to get into the LPN program. At my school, there are approx. 200 people trying to get into 30 day class spots, and 18 night class spots. They do a criminal back-ground check, then they go by grades, and you are scored on the interview, so then only the top 48 get in. I'm not worried about the back-ground check, and my grades are all A's and B's and one C. The interview is what I'm worried about. What should or shouldn't I wear (clothes, hair, make-up,jewerly, perfume etc.). And one question, one of my instructor's said they will ask "Why do you want to become a nurse"? she said DO NOT say "I've always wanted to be a nurse".
These interviews will be in August, if any of you have any advice or guidence PLEASE talk to me

I had an interview before getting into my program. There where 170 people competing for 30 spots. I luckly made it!! We had to write an essay "Why I want to be a nurse". Instead of writing about how I want to help people, I wrote mine on how I wanted to help myself by having a career that would constantly challenge me and provide me with the personal satisfaction that I need everyday etc...... you get the picture! I think too many people say "because I want to help people" I think that they (the interviewers) are looking for something that will knock their socks off! You have to come up with something that they won't soon forget... As for what to wear, I would suggest something professional, but most of all BE YOURSELF! I'm sure you will do well..... Keep us posted!
