I think that one of the best pieces of advice I ever had concerning an upcoming interview, is to remember that it is a 2-way street. Of course they will ask me questions; but I should be prepared to ask my own - let them know I have done my research on the position I'm interviewing for. You did not mention what position it is for, but since you are a RN, I'm just taking a guess that it might be a case management position (which is what I do):
1) Is it hourly, salary, or pay per visit. (There are pros & cons of all 3)
2) If the position is for a CM position, am I required to do on-call after hours? Or back-up to the on-call nurse? (I am a CM & must back-up the on-call nurse 1 night a week, & 1 weekend a month.)
3) If I'm required to cover on-call, what is the hourly rate for being on-call/back-up? Do I get paid an additional hourly rate if I must go out on a call? (Our company pays our regular hourly rate if we must go out.)
4) Does the company provide patients/families with continuous care? If so, are CM's required to sit cont care? If so, how often & for how many hours?
5) What is mileage reimbursement?
6) What is a typical CM/patient ratio?
7) Must the CM make weekly visits to every patient? Or are weekly SN visits alternated with another nurse (i.e. LPN)?
8) Does the CM have a back-up (i.e. an LPN) for prn visits?
9) How many hours/week does a CM usually work (between visits & documenting)
I know this is probably not what you were expecting in reply, but I assure you - these are questions that are important to a hospice nurse - you want to know these answers! I went to the interview with my questions written out on a tablet.... don't know if that made a difference to them - but I did get the job. Best of luck to you!
