Quote from Heather77RN
All three interviewers pushed for a reason that the job was not a good fit and when I just wanted to leave the explanation at that, the interviewers pushed harder for a reason. I didn't know how to answer without making the last job look bad.
Your inability to communicate anything
lost you the job(s). If I ask you a question, and you try to give me the run-around, I don't need any other information from you.
People make mistakes. People need to constantly learn new skills. Some people can't do every job. There is nothing wrong with telling a potential employer of past failures. It shows you've recognized a weakness, and usually means you will try to correct and prevent similar situations in the future.
A good response would be, "After a short time, I realized I was not ready for the busy rehab floor. Unfortunately, due to staff numbers, I could not receive the necessary on-the-job training required. Since then, I have taken online courses and attended seminars to help me prioritize and be more comfortable in different situations I may face. I believe this is no longer a weakness of mine, and I'm proud of the efforts I put in to continually improve my skills as a nurse."
