PCT job interview, going to have a written quiz

  1. 0
    I have a job interview at a hospital in a few days and they told that I was going to take a written quiz before the doing the interview.

    I was wondering what kind of questions should I expect from this quiz if you have taken it? I am sure its going to be situational questions, but I haven't worked as a CNA yet. It's also been a year since I took the CNA exam.

    I just got hired as an emergency nurse tech for a hospital and they asked 5 situational questions before my interview.
