    I don't know if this is the right place, but I was asked these two questions that I hadn't heard before. Hopefully it will help someone practice if they run into a similar question like this in their own interview:

    What are some advantages and disadvantages of having a career in nursing?

    In what situation have you ever questioned your decision to go into nursing?

    Thank you for your article.

    I maintain a Word file with standard interview questions and my potential answers, which I update and review prior to sending resumes and attending interviews.

    I also have files of actual work scenarios which I pull when it's time for performance reviews.

    Interviews are all fairly standard, and if you learn to prepare in advance your success of landing offer (s) should increase.
    Good Idea

    I hate those questions like: describe a time when... or give me an example of... I can't remember all those situations. What is even more difficult is when you have 6 people staring at you. You feel like you're in front of a firing squad.

    Exactly! I cannot stand being subjected to panel interviews. They bestow upon me a sense of stage fright due to multiple people looking at and listening to me.
