    I interviewed there last month- the surgical manager is really nice and down to earth. My interview actually went a little over an hour. The interview was more of a conversation. She asked about some examples of the types of patients I've worked with. She asked about my clinical rotations which I described. Just be yourself, dress professionally. Take extra copies of your résumé and she might have you meet with some nurses on the unit.

    This is a great hospital and they are wet supportive of new grads. I was offered the job after that one interview but I had to decline because I was not in a position to relocate to cooperstown/oneonta. Good luck to you!

    I just thought of two questions she asked... tell me about your most difficult patient. Also tell me a time when you went above and beyond for a patient. Good luck.
