    My best advice would be relax and just be yourself. The calculations tests should be pretty basic so it shouldn't be very hard. Never heard of a theories test in an interview. What area are you interviewing for?

    One of my clinical instructors gave us a list of common interview questions. I'm sure there are more, but this might be a good start.

    1. Tell me about yourself. (Looking for an overview of your professional experience)

    2. What makes you stand out when compared with your peers?

    3. What type of management style do you prefer?

    4. Where do you see yourself in (x) years?

    5. Why should we hire you for this position?

    6. Do you have any questions?

    one that nobody mentioned that i did get asked is "what would you consider one of your faults"......hard to answer, but i tried to give it a positive spin, such as "i try too hard to please people""""just relax and be yourself. try not to talk too much, sometimes one can say too much.....practice with someone.

    at the hospital that i work for, there are five hospital values, i was asked which one was most important to me and why (easy question, but not if you don't know the hospital values), i was also asked what the five steps of nursing theory are and how they are well as lots of other general questions...
