If these questions and answers help just one person out there, then I feel the effort to share them was well worth it.I used this post, along with Part 1 & 2, to help with my recent, first nursing interview ever.

First rejected with a response that I they would welcome me to reapply after gaining 6-12 months acute care experience. Kinda stuck in long term care position(charge RN, with level 3\4 residents) at the moment, in a small community where I'm simply not at all happy.

- 0Nov 24 by RunBabyRN, BSN, RNI haven't read through the responses, so this may be repetitive, but I wanted to add a few questions I've had recently:
Describe a time when you had conflict with a manager/coworker/patient/family member and how you resolved it. What was the outcome?
How do you manage your stress?
Give an example of how you've handled a high stress situation.
Have you ever worked nights? Would this be a struggle for you? (for NOC position)
Give examples related to our values (pt safety, advocacy, stewardship, etc.) that you've performed in patient care.
What are your favorite patients? Least favorite?
In asking them questions, the manager today LOVED when I asked what changes have been happening recently in the unit. It was good to know what was up!
