margaretptz. . .well, whatever you do, don't go into the interview with your walker! :roll
here's a link to the interview questions. it pretty much covers most stuff. also keep that list i mentioned above in mind. some interviewers get pretty creative about thinking up little scenarios or questions to ask in trying to find out how people react to them. attitude is everything. in today's world customer service is at the top of everyone's list because all facilities are competing for patient customers. the interview is more about them figuring out your personality and behavior, if they are going to be able to work with you and if you will make a good employee. the last thing they want is to hire someone who might end up being a potential troublemaker. as a nursing student, they pretty much know what you can do and if there is any question about your nursing skills they can just call your school and find out what you've learned in the program so far. at your age you have your maturity and life experience to sell them. you're not going to run and scream at the first little crisis that comes up. you're already an upper classman at the school of life. age discrimination just isn't an issue in hospital nursing. i have just never seen it. what will
be an issue is your sore feet and aching back after your first full shift of being on your feet! but don't let that out at the interview. like the rest of us, you'll just go home, take some advil and soak your feet. :roll good luck! and, the dream starts. . .
- questions you'll be asked
- questions for nurses to ask employers during interviews
- inappropriate or unacceptable interview questions and what you should do if you are asked one of these
