Hey everyone!! I got a call to interview for CHOP’s NICU (through their new grad program), I’m super excited but I just wanted to know what your guys experience was with the in person interview! Even if it wasn’t on that floor, what kind of questions did they ask you and what did you do during while shadowing a nurse on your prospective floor? Thanks!!

Hi! Congratulation:) I wish you the best of luck on your journey!! I bet you are super excited! 

I applied for the cohort starting in March. I just received an email to do the virtual interview. Did you have to do that also? 

if so, do you mind telling me your experience?

 

thanks 🙂

Yes I’m super excited!! 😊
 

I did have a video interview! I would say make sure you have a simple background, dress nice, and make sure you have good lighting. As far as questions go I had things like:

1. Why CHOP

2. A time you didn’t meet a deadline and how you handled it. 
3. A time you stood up for someone who wasn’t present.

4. A time you saw something wasn’t right and what you did about it (advocating).

5. Where are you interested in working (what unit)? This is an answer you’d type, I said the NICU which is what I got an email from HR to interview for!

Im not sure you’d get the same questions but  it doesn’t hurt to practice with these! Good luck, I wish you the best!!

When I shadowed I just helped carry stuff for the nurse and chatted a bit with the patients and families. It's a really good experience that they do a shadow as you get a feel for the unit. The nurse you shadow fills out a form that goes into part of the decision making process.

I actually recently had the interview, I got the job!! And I agree, I really loved being on the floor for a couple hours, I also think it’s what contributed to me getting the job since I wasn’t too crazy about my actual interview.
