    Hi, I have been invited for a band 6 interview for Clinical Skills Educator. I have 10 minutes to teach the interview panel a clinical skill in the skills lab. I am working as an experienced band 5 in a community setting and am a nurse mentor. I have undertaken minimal group teaching sessions some years ago. I was thinking of flip chart, demonstrating skill with explanation and asking questions of the panel as in a real time teaching session. Would welcome any advice on approach please.

    It's worth researching methods of teaching psychomotor skills it'll give you some ideas of how to structure it. Personally stay away from flip charts, teaching skills are better developed with a hands on approach, demonstration with explanation then practice. Think of a very simple, basic skill. Taking a pulse, checking blood pressure they will be looking at how you conduct yourself and impart information rather than what skill your teaching.

    Hi

    Firstly thank you for all the tips I have just read. I am a band 5 senior staff nurse on an Emergency Assessment Unit (where i have now worked for 4.5 years, and I have an interview for the band 6 deputy sister post on the same ward (there are 6 deputy sisters). I have to do a presentation during my interview which must answer the following:

    As a band 6 working on a busy Emergency Assessment Unit how will you balance your clinical responsibility along with the responsibility of supporting your ward manager.

    I don't really get what is meant by 'how will I balance'. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I am applying for a band 5 staff nurse position with the school nurses. I have had my confidence knocked recently with interviews as I didn't get two positions that I have gone for. I work in paediatric intensive care and most of my experience is hospital based but want to move to the community. What questions would you expect for this type of role? I always used to ace interviews but have completely lost my confidence. Many thanks

    I would be worried they wouldn't take me because I wouldn't remember the different spellings and be messing up the charts all the time

    I've always been interested in going "over there" since I love it when I do get to go, so this helps a lot!
