    I have been an RN for 5 years, but no inpatient OR experience. I just interviewed with an OR about a week ago. I can't think of them all, but here are a few that I can remember. A lot of them were very similar. They want to hear that you know how to prioritize and handle yourself in a stressful situation.

    -Explain a time when you've had a difficult patient. How did you deal with it?
    -Do you prefer to multitask or tackle each task one by one?
    -Have you ever been asked to do multiple tasks at once? How did you deal with it?
    -Explain your work attendance history
    -Explain a time when you've had a conflict with a co-worker. How did you deal with it?
    -Explain a stressful situation you were in at work and how did you deal?
    -Have you ever been involved with a big change at work and how did you deal? (I used the example of switching over to computerized charting)

    They didn't ask any OR specific questions.

    P.S. I got the job....and I'm extremely nervous about the learning curve!
