    What qualities do you think are important in a nurse?
    Has there ever been a time where you have had to take a leadership role and what did you learn?
    Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
    What can you tell us about yourself that is not on your transcript?
    What would you say is your biggest self-improvement?

    Be ready to ask the interviewers questions at the end of your interview.

    Have good posture and convey your thoughts clearly..... and try to maintain good eye contact.

    Don't forget to smile!

    Good luck!

    I was invited to interview for admission into UIC nurse practitioner program. They said the interview would be 45-60 minutes! How many people should I expect there to be in the room? Is is appropriate to ask the admissions office what to expect in the interview, in terms of the number of participants, types of questions, tips for success?

    I spoke to several people who are enrolled at the BSN level and they said that they did not have to do an interview. Can anyone share their experience of interviewing at the MSN level?

    My interview for an MSN program was an odd one. First of all it was a group interview, that was a little disconcerting. I was the ONLY one not wearing a suit. The program director and the faculty asked us a question about what we thought one of the major issues Nurse Practitioners would have an impact on in the future was. Everyone wrote thier answer down and then we read them aloud (I made sure I went first).

    Next we all went outside to the courtyard and each of us had to cross the courtyard in a way that was totally unique from any of the others. I chose somersaults.

    We went back inside and we had to write down what we thought the previous exercise told us about the people performing them. I put down that it revealed who the best people to go out drinking with at the end of the semester were.

    Then we all took a test, chatted some more, answered some more questions and that was it.

    I found out later that I was one of the few to get offered early admittance. I was happy that I had been myself...from answering the questions honestly (really, what CAN you tell about a person from how they cross a courtyard if not thier drinking style) to not wearing a suit. I let my personality shine through, even when in meant stating, that for me, abortion rights were one of the most important issues that will be facing NP's in the future.

    I know I've chosen the right school and that they've chosen the right student for both our personalities.
