I have 3 interviews coming up next week (YAY!!!!) and I am trying to come up with some good answers for the usual "What are your strengths/weaknesses?" questions that I will inevitably be asked. I have come up with a pretty good "strengths" list, but am stumped about the "weakness" question. Any ideas? (FYI, I am thinking of saying that my weakness is that I am new to the nursing profession, having just passed boards recently). Thanks!

When I am asked what are my weaknesses I usually reply that i am a perfectionist i want everything to always be perfect i dont like mistakes but i know everyone makes mistakes hope this helps good luck.

I would say that when things go wrong, I am more upset than what I need to be. Or that I get really emotional when I see ill children (which may be an actual fact for many nurses). I've learned over time that telling about actual weaknesses are a disadvantage.
