If you were a nurse manager or nurse educator...

    Hi All nurses!!

    I was just wondering If you were a nurse manager or nurse educator, what kind of questions would you ask at an interview??

    I have been fortunate enough to land an interview at a Pediatric Cardiac CCU and have been preparing endlessly for it!! I'm nervous, but excited as this is my ideal position! I completed my consolidation at this hospital on another unit and have already been through the initial interview and this is the second interview I'm going to. I know as a nurse that is still pretty fresh (graduated in December 2010) that it is going to be mainly behavioural type questions. At least that is what I'm expecting. Also, because I consolidated there, would they expect me to answer questions that were scenario specific (i.e. how much of this med would you give during a code?).

    Anyways, I was just wondering if there are any pediatric ICU nurses, nurse managers or nurse educators out there (I assume questions may be similar to the ones asked at these interviews ) who can share their interview experience??

    I know there are threads out there that have addressed interviews, but I find they are a bit dated and was wondering if anyone could help?

    I have always received GREAT advice from fellow nurses here, so I'm hoping you guys can pull through for me again Thanks in advance for any suggestions (I'm open to any!) and advice that anyone can lend!

    It went well! I got the job
    There were absolutely no scenario questions and it was completely behavioural type questions (i.e. How do you deal with conflict? Tell me about a time when you were working in a group and there was an issue, How did you manage it?) At the end, there was a multiple choice medication administration quiz. I think that these were questions were specific to my situation as I am basically a new grad (graduated in December 2010). I always hate interviews and the wait to hear back afterwards! eeks!

    warmest regards! lesliel
