    Do you know what kind of interview it is? Panel, group, individual? Find out what kind of questions they'll ask, is it going to be a regular interview, will they ask situational questions, or behavioral questions.

    If situational have examples handy of when you did certain ICU-like things.

    If they ask you situational type of questions remember that as a student nurse, your responsibilities are most likely that of CNA (so if there is something wrong with the patient, you should definitely mention that you will stay with the patient and call the RN). They might ask you why you wanted to be a nurse, and why you want to work in that facility/ICU (definitely brush up on the hospital's mission and vision and all that good stuff). Go in there confident and show your love for nursing! GOOD LUCK!!
