currently working float pool last 2.5 years with most my experience in med/surg.I just got offered an interview for next week in a new hospital in ED. What type of question should I expect? Any advise? What questions should I ask?

I’m so desperate to leave my current job, I’m worried I’m going to get to nervous or put to much pressure on my self and ruin the interview  

ive only ever had one interview for a RN job, was luckily enough to get the first job I applied for. which I didn’t prepare for at all! So don’t have much experience to go off, especially now that I have experience, I know the interview will be very different than when I was a new grad. 

Any advice is welcomed. Thank you.

You might try cross-posting in the ED specialty. Also, you can post your question in the search bar to the upper right. I am sure this has come up before. Good luck!

Google behavioral interview questions and prepare for those. Almost every hospital position I've interviewed for uses this type of method. (Doesn't mean yours will, but good to be prepared!)

Is it a peer interview?  Or one to one?

When I interviewed for my ED position I was given a triage scenario - 4 patients, their symptoms, VS etc. Who would I send through first, what order. One was chest pain with a normal EKG, a woman with what I thought could be sepsis, and I forget the rest.

 I decided the sepsis was the priority (think code sepsis, where you have to have cultures drawn and antibiotics in within a certain time frame). But then I had my hypothetical tech bring in the chest pain for monitoring, troponin etc. at the same time.

However, if you haven't worked in the ED before (I had), they may not expect you to know all that.
