- Jul 9, '07 by cenfromlvI 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!
- Jul 9, '07 by N3xt_galThey 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.

- May 11, '10 by oxojoyoxo2MARALITE- 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!
- Jun 8, '10 by sweet_emotion12@oxojoyoxo2 you dont have to stress about the interview..trust 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!
