There are a lot of threads for interviews for new grads and the questions to expect in a pediatric interview, but what about nurses coming from a different field like adult med surg? Do you think it would be similar to a new grad, given the lack of pediatric experience?

My facility, its a little different for experienced nurses, usually the type of questions are "tell me about a time you __________ for a patient' Real world examples of critical thinking, time management and conflict resolution. My facility does not hire new nurses into the womens/children's service line so we do not have questions for new grads.

Good luck!

I think an obvious question you will get is "why do you want to switch to peds?"

Thanks for the help everyone. I didnt think about them asking why I would go to peds, though it's a pretty obvious one now that I think of it.

Both my unit and the peds unit give chemotherapy so I wonder how in depth they will go.
