On Monday, I will be interviewing at Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside for their OR Training Program. They will only be hiring 3-4 RN's. There is a 6 month didactic followed by a 1 year clinical internship. Then you have to commit to work there for an additional 2 years.
The letter they sent me states I will be interviewing with the Director of Surgical Services, the Clinical Manager, the Perioperative Clinical Educator, the Orientation Coordinator, an experienced Perioperative Nurse and a student from a prior class.
Any idea what kind of questions they could possibly ask me? I'm sure they'll ask me why I want to be an OR nurse but what else do you think they'll ask? Has anyone interviewed or worked there? I know it's short notice but any help would be appreciated. I really want this position and am really nervous about interviewing with this panel!
Also, they want me to write a letter requesting consideration and outlining my long-range career goals. My only goal at the moment is to make it through the training and become an OR nurse that knows what she's doing.
Even though it's not really a goal at the moment, I stated I want to finish my master's degree and possible advance into a supervisory or educator role. Any other ideas that will make me sound like someone they'd want to hire?
