CVSU interview...Help

by livinthelife livinthelife (New) New

Ok guys, help me out. I have an interview for my dream job in the Cardiovascular Surgery Unit. I'm so nervous but i want to make a good impression (and of course land the job) what questions should I ask? Its a group interview also, which I have never been in a group interview before so how should I handle that? Not really sure who would come to a group interview either... nurse manager and HR rep I guess? Any advice would be welcome. Thanks in advance!!
