    Hello everyone!

    Good luck!

    I didn't have an interivew for my program, so I don't have any advice about what they'll ask you - but I have plenty of questions you could ask them! :chuckle

    I believe, if I'm not mistaken, there's an interview sticky at the top of one of the nursing student forums....

    I would love to hear some questions that I could ask. I just want to go in feeling somewhat prepared. I want to make a good impression.

    On my interview they asked very basic questions! Why you want to be a nurse... 3 words that describe you.. Why do you want to go to this program over others.. and thats basically it.. Goodluck!!

    My interviewers wanted to know about specific incidents in my life in which I displayed certain qualities. I was asked about 10 different such questions on top of the typical 'why nursing' and 'biggest weakness' type questions. I can't remember them all but they were along the lines of:

    1. Tell us about an experience where you had to multi-task.

    2. Tell us about an experience where you were under a lot of pressure and had to solve a problem.

    3. Tell us about an experience where you were in conflict with a peer and how you addressed it.

    4. Tell us about an experience in which you disagreed with an authority figure and how you handled it.

    ETC...

    Also, I agree with the previous posters...definitely ask questions when given the opportunity. And not necessarily the typical 'gee whiz' questions either. I mean, those are fine, but do your homework about the school and ask a question that'll knock their socks off and help them to remember you when it comes time to make selections. I got an immediate positive reaction when I did this which made me feel really good about the whole interview

    Above anything, make eye contact, be interested and engaged, relax and don't be afraid to SMILE

    I think the interview questions really depend upon what type of program you are entering...AA, BSN, or MSN.

    I have an interview for the MSN program at my California school TOMORROW and I am really nervous!!!!!
