Upcoming oncology opportunity for new grad!!!

  1. Hi everyone! I have an upcoming interview on an oncology unit with the unit manager and floor nurses and need some advice. I am a new grad and don't have much experience under my belt. What kind of questions should I expect from either the unit manager or floor nurses? Will i expected to know how to answer specific oncology situations asked by the unit manager or will she be general? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    As a new grad, they'll probably ask you pretty general questions, which could include things like:

    (1) Why do you want to work in nursing and more specifically on an oncology floor?
    (2) What are your long-term career plans?
    (3) Tell us about yourself.
    (4) General questions regarding how you work with others, on teams, etc.
    (5) Give an example of a time you worked in a stressful situation? -or- How do you deal with conflict in the workplace?
    (6) How do you organize your work/time?

    Those are some to get you started. You can also google "nursing interview questions" to find lists that folks have compiled. Good luck! I love working in oncology.
