Hi everyone. What do I need for my first (internal transfers sp 9months) interviews as a RN and not a GN
? I had one that I bummed out
...whew. Can't say I was prepared for these type of questions....some classic, some trick (yep).
Tell me about one time when you made an error
...(I do not feel safe answering since I work in that division, for only 7 months and hardly have had one
conversation w/ a preceptor, educator or manager or
never had a med error yet cause I check and recheck Lord)...
Tell me about a time when a pt/client complained about you.
(What is the right attitude to have for this? Like, what does management really
think about the complaints about nothing
Tell me what you did when you wanted things changed. ("Interviewer:" Oh you did not talk to others b/f your manager did you?" Like, what does THAT mean????? I have been a nurse for less than one year, of course my needs/ideas come up in the daily grind w/floor nurses... are we really serious here? :trout: )
And then there was the question x5 ....."(something) about customer service". I have NO idea what to say. NONE. Like yes I believe in service excellence wahwwah whhaah wahaw. What to say to convey that I am an altruistic human with finely honed ethics and I too can display attentive conscientious respectful nursing care. (Talk just feels soooo cheap to me...I am a show-me girl.)
Those were the ones that I failed...what others
should I be prepared for...What does a unit really want to know about me
? want me to say? Where does honesty come in? authenticity? ok my organizational self and my personal self?
My next interview is Monday at a L&D up the road....I really want (and need) this!
Show me some love y'all....
