I am about to resign from my first nursing position on Monday, and am curious about what goes on in these exit interviews that I hear about. Are they mandatory? Who usually conducts them? What types of questions do they ask, and more importantly should I answer them honestly?
Just a little background info, I have worked for the hospital that I'm leaving for almost 6 years, 3 1/2 of those in an RN capacity. I am leaving because a much better opportunity came up for me, but there are also some things I would like to get off my chest before I go. Is the exit interview the appropriate place to bring these issues up?
