Interview for nursing school

Posted

Good morning please I need help. I have been notified of an interview at Samuel Merritt ELMSN. Please I am wandering the types of questions to expect. I don't have clinical experience but my Bachelors and Masters. I have completed all prerequisites and volunteer at a nursing home. I need help on how to tackle the interview... Thank you thank you

Every interview is going to be different, but I can give you some general tips that helped me out.

1. Research the school you are applying to, and check out if their nursing program has had any awards or are part of any outreach programs that you can contribute to or are willing to.

2. Ask yourself why you want to be a nurse, and why anyone would want to hire you. The usual stuff like strengths and weaknesses.

3. Be prepared to answer ethical questions (not necessarily pertaining to nursing)

4. Show the best traits of your character, medical fields love to see someone who has resiliency and determination. Be prepared for examples of how you overcame obstacles in life.

5. Team player questions

6. What contributions will you give to the field of nursing?

Hello! And congratulations on your interview. Did you apply for the FNP option or CM option for Samuel Merritt's ELMSN?

Thank you! I applied to the FNP option

Congrats! I applied for the CM option. My best suggestion for you is to look at the past forums from the previous FNP semesters. They talk about their interview experiences like what to wear, how long the interview was and what to expect.

The FNP option is a GROUP interview. From what I've read, be personal and passionate about the FNP option. Be outgoing yet friendly! Good luck :)

@ ffolefac: Congrats to you! When is your interview?

They haven't sent out the calls for interviews for the CM option yet. I think it'll be about another week or two. I've read that they do the FNP interviews first, the. The CM. But I got an email from the school saying there were 23 CM applicants and I know there's 24 spots so hopefully that's good odds that I will get an interview!

I believe I read in a forum that there are around 92 or so FNP applicants!

OMG I am so nervous now. I will sure look at the past forum guys.

September, 12 is my interview date

You'll do fine! Just prepare yourself for a group interview. That's a big part!

Are you sure it's not Sept 13th, not the 12th?

Okay, maybe they threw in another interview date in there. Originally, the email said Aug 22, Sept 8, and 13th for FNP interviews.

I wish there were more prospective Spring applicants on this forum. I enjoyed posts from previous years. Lots of support provided by cohorts :)

does any one know if there is a thread out there for ELMSN FNP Spring Sacramento?

I pray to stay positive until interview day!

Once I applied, I got an confirmation email. Then one of the admissions counselors emailed myself and the other CM applicants telling us the days the interviews will be held on and how many applicants there were. This email is given out before they give out the calls for the interviews

They did this email for the FNP option too, as someone shared with me a different blog. Another FNP applicant stated her email said there were 92 FNP applicants.
