Peer Review Interview
- 0Nov 8, '11 by RN_Mamahi all,
question about the interview process, specifically related to nicu. does anyone know anything about the 'peer review interview' process?
i've been an aspiring nicu nurse for 8 years since my own preemie was born. since nursing school, a year ago, iíve worked in an inner city emergency room just to get critical care experience and get all my certs completed so that i could qualify for an interview. well last week was a wonderful week and i landed 2 different nicu interviews at 2 regional hospitals. i had my first interview yesterday and it went really well. i was told the next round of interviews was a peer review interview. specially trained personnel in the nicu will be interviewing me in a group setting is all i really know about the process.
wondering if anyone has gone through this on the applicant or hiring manager side and what to expect. is it more of a technical interview or a social/moral/teamwork evaluation?
thanks in advance!

How have you resolved conflict with a coworker? What would you do if you had free time at work, etc. Emphasize being a cooperative team player.

They tell you nothing about how qualified the nurse is for the job or whether they have the skills/sense to handle that 24 weeker.Staff nurses from the NICU usually with a manager sit down at a table with you & ask you questions like what are your strengths & weaknesses?

It's so irritating because nearly no one that asks them in interviews is qualified to interpret the answers.
