Vanderbilt Interview

  1. 0
    Hi everyone. I have an interview with Vanderbilt's Neuro ICU on Thursday. I'm very nervous. I did the human resources interview per phone, and I felt I didn't do very well. So, I'm hoping to make up for it Thursday.

    I'm reviewing the standard interview questions and will rehearse them all...but I was already asked all of these by Human Resources. I'm just not sure what to expect.

    Any of you ever worked at this hospital? Or have any tips? I graduate next week, this is my first real job interview.

    Hello nh,

    I am still a student but wonder if you may want to post in the 'graduate nurse' section under the student section. I think that new hire interviews and new nurse experiences may be discussed there. Nice to read you and good luck!

    I worked at Vanderbilt, and it is the most phenomenal place to work. They instill a feeling of pride in yourself and your work like nowhere else. I felt a foot taller just walking onto the campus. Go for it

    As a well seasoned veteran of both the Neuro ICU and ICU's in general, I would like to offer some thoughts. Being a new graduate there should be some questions that you need to ask your future employer. Neuroscience is without question the most intense of nursing specialties. Even the most subtle changes in neurologic status can signal potentially major changes in your patient's status. Having a preceptor who not only has the good assessment skills but also the ability to communicate openly is very important to the success of a new nurse. Not everyone likes the preceptor role....and many who do shouldn't. Look for the right fit...you will know when you find it. Best of luck!
