I have a job interview
for a Nursing Aide position tomorrow morning. It is with a local nursing home and they offer CNA training which is what I am applying for.
I am quite sure that during the course of the interview the interviewer will ask "So, why do you want to go into nursing?" and I am very concerned about how to respond.
I mean, the reason I want to go into nursing is because I am very interested in science and medicine and I enjoy working with and interacting with people ie. fellow staff and with patients. I also enjoy work that involves a physical aspect to it ie. moving around (don't like being trapped behind a desk an entire day). I would also enjoy working in a capacity where I work directly with people and have a role / impact in their overall care. I'm not out to change the entire world but I am happiest when I am of service and help to others even if it is something small like letting someone infront of me at the grocery store.
Is the above a good response to this question? I am worried about what the interviewer will think about my answer (kind of like am I deemed worthy of the nursing profession). It is hard to answer the question because I have not worked in the medical field and can only go by my expectations of what I think it would be like.
What do you think?
