    Oh I thought the HR woman said SICU but i guess it was SCU. I would be happy to work in either though!

    Dress: professional and conservative.
    Bring: extra copies of your resume and list of references.

    For an hour-long interview, you'll probably get a tour of the unit (ask lots of questions), a sit-down with the manager, and maybe a peer review with some of the unit's nurses. Then you'll go through the whole thing again on the other unit!

    That is helpful thank you! I'm just worried about the interview...is it a behavioral interview? And what is a peer review?
  10. by   michigansapphire
    Most managers use at least some behavioral questions.

    A peer review means that part of the interview would be with the nurses who already work on the unit. The goal of these is for them to judge how well you would fit in as one of their peers.

    I work in the ER at BMC in Cooperstown, NY and have about a ten year work history there - SCU, ICU, Nurse Educator and now ER. All of the advice from above is great - my advice: take a deep breath, relax, be yourself and answer truthfully. It is a great organization to work for. email me if you'd like swiftdr@oneonta.edu
