First interview since being reinstated!

  1. I'm in need of pointers and how I should present myself in this interview tomorrow! It's a private practice so I'll be meeting with the doctor who will be the one who decides. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Sell your strong points and be very open about your whole story include your sobriety date meetings you go to and how far into the aftercare rehab you are.

    Be honest and accept responsibility for your past. Show your humble side and make eye contact. Be confident. Best of luck!

    Be honest, sell your skills and think before you speak...I always state that my situation has not only made me a better nurse but a better person. I have realized that nurse is not just occupation or privilege, it is a lifestyle. Thus, I have learned to conduct myself appropriately. That's two learning and selling points.

    I did okay I think, not sure how they felt about me but they were very kind. Now I wait and see...

    So I did we'll and they wanted to offer me employment BUT due to my restrictions of needing a supervisor for the first year they can't work with it. Back to the drawing board...

    But at least I had my first interview!

    Really inspired by you. I've never had an addiction, so I don't know your personal struggle, but your positivity is infectious for everyone. Good Luck and I pray that you get your chance.
