I applied for a job as employed student nurse and I just got a call for an interview for a medical unit (my preference would have been surgical but I'm glad either way). I am horrible at interviews; I tend to blank out, get nervous, talk fast, etc. I've also had very little experience in the medical unit compared to surgical so I don't remember alot of the cases that were presented.
I was hoping to prepare for it but asking you what kind of interview questions would they ask for a medical unit? What areas should I brush up on? Tips, advice etc.
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

As a student nurse, they dont expect you to be an expert. Your knowledge is limited to clinical hours, meaning you are not at a level to work independently. The hospital is going to orient you to their unit plus their practices. Be comfortable with the med -surg aspect, what they are looking for at this point is someone who can learn and adapt to their unit. Goood luck.
