I had one of these interviews. They ask the typical what are strengths and weaknesses, and they want you to tell them about a difficult situation you had working (or in clinical) and how you handled it.
At my interview there were some HIPAA questions that were super easy and some legal stuff like "a 60 year old is diagnosed with terminal cancer and his family asks staff not to tell him his diagnosis or prognosis, what do you do"? They are trying to assess critical thinking skills with some of the questions, so be on top of that.
The interviews are not as scary as they seem. Bring enough resumes and copies of reference letters to pass out to everyone and if you do not get contact information on all of them, then when you send your thank you letter to the NM, mention them all in the letter "please also thank Mary, Sue, and Steph for their time and for a great interview as well" type of remark. if you do get contact info on all of them, send them all thank you notes.
