    Thank you! I will. I CANNOT remember a time I went above and beyond for a patient. Oh my gosh....

    HI! Sorry for it taking me so long, I had a lot of things to do today! Haha.

    So, yes! At the end of our phone conversation, she invited me up to Cooperstown for two separate interviews--one for the medical floor and one for the surgical floor! Those appointments are scheduled for October 11th at 9AM.

    The interview questions she gave me were different from what she asked you.

    She asked me:

    Why do you want to relocate to Cooperstown?
    Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a patient.
    Tell me about a difficult patient and how you handled him/her.
    What are your long and short term goals?
    You do realize how different the life is up here than downstate?
    When would you be able to relocate
    ?
    How did you like your clinicals?
    If offered a position, in which field would you like to start?

    She was very nice and I was surprised that she asked me for a second interview right then and there!

    Thank you! Now I am very nervous about the in person interview. Each interview is one hour long. Needless to say, I'm terrified! Haha!

    I'm sure you'll do well! An hour long interview sounds nerve-wracking but they will probably take you on a tour and have you meet the staff of each floor so I'm sure it won't be so bad! Anyways, good luck! Let me know how it goes!

    Hey everyone!

    I had posted on the boards a week or so ago about my upcoming interview at Bassett Medical Center in Cooperstown, NY. Well, I must have really made a good impression because I got an in-person interview on the spot and it is scheduled for October 11th!

    I am so excited, but SO nervous! I don't even know what to expect!

    Apparently I am having two interviews on the same day. One for the medical floor and one for the surgical floor. Each of them lasting one hour. Now...ONE HOUR interviews? What could they possibly ask, do, etc.?

    I was just wondering if anyone who has been hired there could tell me what to expect, what to bring, how to dress? Any good advice?

    I would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Thank you so much!

    Do you mean SCU? Bassett doesn't have a SICU

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