    what are your goals? do you intend to further your education? Are you willing to work nights and weekends? Do you have a preference in which dept. to work? Why did you decide to be a nurse?

    They are looking for someone with a sense of maturity, responsibility and accountability. Nursing skills can be taught, but you MUST portray a personality expressing the above qualities. Flexibility is a great plus! Good luck.

    These are the questions I was asked:

    Why have you chosen this particular nursing school?

    Why do you want to be a nurse?(be creative on this one...they have heard "to help people" a million and one times:chuckle )

    What do you think a nurse's responsibility is in todays society?

    What kind of experiences have you had with nurses in your past?

    What qualities do you possess that will make you a good nurse?

    What area would you like to work in once you finish school, and why?

    In regards to nursing, where do you see yourself in 5 years?

    Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    How well do you get along with others?

    Are you a leader or a follower?

    Are you comfortable taking a leadership role?

    Are you willing to be a represenative for a small group of ppl or the whole nursing program?

    Do YOU have any questions?(I figured out they like the ppl who ask alot of questions)

    That's all I can think of...there were a few more. All I did was try and sell myself without sounding cocky or overconfident. Hehe...don't be suprised if you cry or get a little choked up...i did when they asked me certain things. I let them see this though....I wanted them to know I was passionate about what I wanted to do. Good luck to you, and let us know how it goes!
