I'm absolutely ECSTATIC!!!!

  1. Hi all, I'm a 3rd semester RN student and my life long dream is to work in L&D. I have an interview tomorrow for a nursing assistant position at the local hospital in the birthing center. Any tips on what the interview would be like and what questions I should be prepared for??? I thank you all in advance. I'm a mother of four, and you lovely OB nurses have inspired me tobecomea nurse. Did I say IM SO EXCITED!!!!!o

    Congrats on the interview! I'm sure you will ace it!

    When I interviewed for a tech position (it wasn't OB), they asked me why I wanted to work in that particular hospital; what are my strengths and weakness; how did I handle conflict/stress. They also asked about normal ranges of VS and what to do if VS are abnormal (tell the RN).

    Since you are in nursing school, I'm sure the questions will be a breeze. Just be confident in yourself and honest! Good luck!

    You could share how much you would learn working as a tach, and how it would help you both in nursing school and as a nurse, since you would be able to understand a broader picture and know what it is like to work as a tech

    Check out this video on youtube. It's about roughly 8 mins long and provides a lot of insight as to what can be expected in an interview for a nursing position.


    Good luck, and I was just recently excepted into a nursing program to start in the spring. I'm so excited and I can't wait.

    I think the interview went really well. I interviewed with HR first and then the NM of the birthing center. I really think they liked me. I even got to sit with some of the other techs at the desk and they explained to me what they do all day! I hope I made a good impression. I made sure they knew that I was really interested in L&D now and when I officially become an RN. Now it's just the waiting game. I sent her an email thanking her again. She said I should know within the next couple weeks!!!! Praying for an early Christmas Gift....cross ur fingers!!!!
