Dialysis Interview

  1. I graduated in May 09 and have finally gotten my first interview.I have recently scheduled an interview with an outpatient hemodialysis center. It is my understanding that they are willing to put the time and money into training me! Which is a great relief. Are there any common questions that I can expect to be asked during this interview?? At this point in my job search I am desperate for a RN position, but I don't want to seem so. What questions should I ask to let them know I am interested? Also, what is the typical starting salary for a new grad dialysis RN in the are (NJ/PA)? Not that I would refuse any salary, just curious. Thanks for the help in advance!

    Ask about nurse to patient ratio, how long is orientation, how will you be evaluated, daily, weekly etc. How long has the preceptor been working in the field. Ask if the staff has been there awhile or is there a high turn-over. Ask about furtherin your education, do they compensate,they like to hear that you want to get more degrees.
