Nursing school interview
- 0Jan 30, '13 by beyeuI am going to the interview on feb for RN program at a nursing school. I wasn't accepted last time because they only accepted 60 people, even though they said my gpa only need to be 2.0 and i don't need to get any requirements done before accepting to sschool. but anyway i didn't get accepted, i want to try one more time this time. I am really nervous because there are tons of other students are better than me. I always feel that i am going to fail agaiin. does anyone has any idea about what questions they going to ask in the interview?
- 0Feb 1, '13 by BlueChocolateCatThey typically ask you about why you are interested in nursing, what do you think is going to be difficult/easy for you in nursing, what are some of the important things that nurses do?
Now, most programs say that you need a minimum GPA of 2.0-2.5, however, no school will actually accept a student with that GPA because there are tons of students well above 3.0. Nursing programs are competetive. Good luck!

Give them some evidence that you have a realistic idea of the responsibilities of a nurse in the profession beyond TV and Cherry Ames. If you want a good TV portrayal of nursing's autonomous responsibilities, joys, and fears, check out "Call the Midwife" from the BBC, available online at the PBS website.
