    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?

    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

    Hi guys! I just made my allnurses account today so I'm new Hope I'm not making any mistakes!

    I had a phone interview with Bassett Medical Center last month for Ambulatory Surgery and was asked right after the phone interview to come in person. However, that position was filled so I will be interviewing with Surgical, SCU, and In-patient Psych this Thursday 11/15. I'm super duper nervous and don't know what to expect. Each interview is going to last an hour. Can anyone give me some tips for what might possibly happen during this hour such as who do I meet and what questions will probably be asked?

    I am really nervous because I want this job really badly and I don't want to mess it up but this is my first interview since graduation so I'd feel a lot better if I was more prepared. Thanks!
