MICU Interview

  1. Happy Sunday!

    I graduated from nursing school in June 2013 and have been working as an RN on a med-surg floor since August. I'm coming up on my 5th month there (4th on my own). As most med-surg nurses, I don't really enjoy it but had to pay my dues and get some experience before leaving.

    Right before Christmas, I interviewed for an Emergency Department position at an outside hospital. I think it went well, but I was told I wouldn't hear yes/no until after the holidays. I'm still waiting to hear, and that's ok. This same outside health system called me on Friday to interview me for their Medical ICU.

    I worked as an aide in an ICU for 2 years before becoming a nurse, so I'm familiar with the environment, but not the 'nursing' part of it.

    What can I expect from an ICU interview? I'm really nervous but both ER and ICU are top interests of mine and I'd be thrilled if either one worked out.

    They may ask you to describe a time when you helped solve a problem. They may also ask why you want to work in their particular unit and ICU in general. They may also give you a clinical scenario and a customer service scenario. Good luck.
