Hi everyone.. I'm a new nursing school grad, and I have an interview in a couple days for a pediatric oncology position. It's at a hospital where I did many of my clinicals, including pediatrics, and think it would be a great place to start my nursing career. I absolutely love working with children and just know it's what I want to do. However, I don't have much oncology experience, besides the little that we covered it in school/clinicals.
I'm wondering if anybody could give me some advice/ words of wisdom for the interview. Some questions I figure they could ask are:
- why do you want to work in pediatric oncology?
- how do you think you'll be able to handle the emotional aspect of a unit like this?
- general q's (strengths/weaknesses/a time you went above and beyond in helping someone/evidence-based practice, etc.)
If anyone has any other questions they think might pop up for a peds onc job, any help would be very much appreciated! Or ANY advice whatsoever. It's only my second interview
Thanks in advance
