Hi! I'm also a new grad and I have been fortunate to go on 4 interviews so far since graduating. They included a new graduate internship program, a memory care center, a med-surg position and an assisted living center. All the interviewers knew I was a new grad and asked about my nursing school and clinical rotations.
Q: Tell me about your nursing school and your clinical rotations.
They also knew I graduated in the spring and asked where I have been working since then. (June through October!)
So, I think you should definitely include your clinical rotations and your SNF experience. Any experience is good experience, I think. Make it positive! Don't make the mistake that I made and mention anything negative. They asked if I had ever felt overwhelmed and I told them I felt overwhelmed when working as an aide in a nursing home w/ a patient load of 8 and I noticed they looked at each other and raised their eyebrows. Not good. I tried to cover my tracks and say that I had high standards of care and I just wasn't able to provide the care that the residents deserved... but the damage had been done. Ooops.
