I wouldn't worry about them asking questions like that. They may focus the questions on what you've learned in school. If you displayed leadership in clinicals toot your horn. They may want to know how your med-surg clinicals played out. Mold yourself and focus on med-surg. Remind them that although you're a new grad that means you can be trained to do things their way. You have to remember that the bottom line for the job is the best fitting med-surg nurse...if you have plans to be an OB nurse later for example I wouldn't mention that. Just my 2 cents.
Most nights I'm a barista, plumber, chef, electrician, and NASA engineer (who else could fix a faulty bed?).
You passed nursing school...don't give up now. Maybe it is time to re-evaulate your study habits? Good luck.
My post will probably not be the popular one...I feel if you are ok with the job and handle it do it. This does count as out patient surgical experience. In the long run, perhaps a year you can claim that experience. If hospitals are still not hiring, than look at freestanding out patient surgical centers and build up from there. It's just an idea...
