    I think Pogi interviewed with them. I was scheduled to, but then got sick and right after found out I was accept to NSC. The tuition's a tad bit steep for me too. They haven't filled their class I know so if you don't puke all over the interview committee I'm sure you'll be fine :spin:
    I'm sure they'll ask the usual: 1. why to do you want to be a nurse 2. why USN 3. Describe your (strengths, weaknesses). 4. Are you a leader or a follower? That kind of thing. You'll do fine I'm sure. Good luck and let us know!

    They asked about:Communication, leadership,motivation, team-Skills, problem-Solving Skills, professionalism, compassion.
    Example questions ( as far as i remember)
    If one of you group members dont go along well, how do you handle it?

    how do you describe yourself?
    what are the subject you dont like most when doing your pre-req?
    how communication is important for nursing major?
    how do you describe yourself as being compassion?

    this is not all , i cant remember the rest. ( but before you are being interviewed, you will be asking to write a paragraph in grammatically correct form for15 minutes ) For my question, they asked me if you see one of your friends cheating during an exam, what will you do?

    i hope this help.

    MARALITE- i know you got in 3 years ago but i could imagine that the interview process isn't any different. i will have an interview with them next month and wanted to see what questions they specifically asked you. is it a panel interview? group interview? did you have to write a short essay before. how long is the interview? was it as bad as you thought it would be? thanks in advance!

    @oxojoyoxo2 you dont have to stress about the me I was in the same position. Yes, it is a panel interview with maybe 2 professors and a current student or if you're lucky just maybe one professor. No, it is not a group interview, it's one on one interview. They ask you questions about yourself, teamwork, professionalism, leadership, problem solving, why you want to be a nurse? and all that jazz. There is an essay that you have to do within 15min. and its usually related to teamwork, leadership and stuff. The whole interview is 30-40min. depending on how in depth they want to be. The tour is about 30min. So basically an 1hr-1hr30 all together. Oh and be sure to ask questions, they love em' =]].

    Good luck on your interview. You can do it! Fighting!

    Hey guys I am doing a telephone "advising" interview - the appt where they go over your unofficial transcripts to give you an idea of what should transfer and what else you may need to take, and where you can ask questions about the program. This is not the actual program interview you do after submitting your application.

    The guy I talked to to set it up said it would take an hour. (this is after faxing them the unofficial transcripts the week prior).

    He made it sound like a hybrid of an interview and an advising appointment, but I was under the impression prior to his description of it that it was more of a personal informational appt to help plan out the year and the application process.

    Now I wonder if I am going to have some interview questions thrown at me (which seems odd just b/c I have not even applied yet).

    Have either of you done this and did it take you an hour? I don't have a whole lot of questions besides confirming the format of the program and the basic schedule, and I would assume it won't take long for them to tell me I need the NV constitution requirement and Eng 102 (and me to ask which CLEP exams count for that b/c I already have a BS and I would rather clep Eng102 than take it since it was waived by my undergraduate institution), and whether the rest of my credits are "young" enough to count.
