Peer Review InterviewRegister Today!
- by RN_Mama Nov 8, '11hi 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.
