    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!

    If there are any suggestions, my email is kcl272@nyu.edu

    We've had several threads on this topic lately. Did you try searching for "bassett" in the search box at the top of the page?

    Hi Michigansapphire,

    I did actually look up all the topics that had mentioned Bassett Medical Center on the website beforehand. They were extremely helpful but I found that they didn't completely answer the questions I had. Thank you so much for commenting back so quickly!

    You're welcome!

    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.

    You'll probably be asked about your background, why you want to come work at Bassett, and what you have to offer to that specific unit.

    Good luck!

    Hi cxy.yan!

    Yes, the interview went really well. Everyone was so nice and I felt so comfortable. I ended up getting a position on the Surgical Unit. Are you going up for an interview or thinking of applying? If you are, definitely go for it.

    Hi everyone. I know this was originally posted last year but I just was called from HR to set up an interview with the employment specialist (a part of HR I guess) in person in a couple of weeks. This seems to be different then how this went for you guys. Was *******the person you had the phone interview with? How did the interviews with the floor managers go? What type of questions did they ask? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!!

    Hey boushie87, I had a phone interview with ***** for the acute care position. I will be going up there for the in person interview in 2 wks. Did you do a phone interview? Did they tell you for what unit you're going for? I am a new grad May 2012 living in NYC. Hope I get the job because its hard finding something as a new grad. Where are you from?

    No, I did not have a phone interview yet and I applied to 6 positions and they did not say which one it was for.
