During my interview I asked them what they thought the best quality of their program was/what they liked the most. I also asked how they personally felt the program prepared it's students (I got some interesting answers with this one). I also asked how they thought the dynamic between students and instructors, and students and students was.

Great questions thank you!!!

I asked about the qualifications of the instructors...if they are teaching maternity have they worked in maternity; what kind of degree do they hold, etc. I also asked about their take on educating a well rounded student...NCLEX ready AND strong clinically. Also, about how hands on the clinicals were. Don't be afraid to ask questions and good luck!

So it's not rude to ask them Th e or qualifications? How would I go about saying that?

Not rude at all! And I just came out and asked it. We, as students, have a right to know clinical and educational backgrounds of those teaching us. If I am paying them to go to that school, then I want qualified and educated individuals. When I asked this the person interviewing me (going to be my first semester instructor) was not phased by the question and with no hesitation gave me the info on all the instructors involved in the program.

Well it's after 1030.....how did it go??

Oh, I also asked what they thought their ideal student would be and how many of their graduates were working as nurses 6 months after graduation.

It went really really well! I put together a portfolio that had a mini bio, certifications/license (CNA), current resume, health information (which is needed to begin program) CPR etc, transcripts, letters of reccomendation, employee verifications for acute care experience, and my accomplishments (used to own my own dance studio, awards, pt. thank yous)

AND THEY WERE SUPER IMPRESSED!!!!!! I have a really good feeling about the interview. They told me i need a portfolio for the end of school and i will be ahead of the game (foreshadowing?? ;)) and that with my experience/and the way i put it together in a portfolio presenting myself i will make a lot of money as a nurse someday! Then I asked a boatload of questions (one of the instructors is a graduate from THAT program and another received her BSN from the same BSN program I plan on attending!) thank you for the help!

Hey Jen, I'm just curious on how you presented your portfolio once you were in your interview? Did you just give them the binder or did you go through it while in the interview. I've made a portfolio for my upcoming interview, just curious on how to actually present it since its not required.
