Interview tips


  • Specializes in ICU, long term care. Has 28 years experience.

Tomorrow I have an interview for a nurse position in a local jail. I have been a nurse for 28 years, but I've never worked in a jail. Any tips for a successful interview? 

Specializes in ICU. Has 7 years experience.

Speak about your focus on optimal patient care and safety! Speak about your conflict resolution, which I'm sure in the prisons you'll see a lot of. Speak about how you can see the signs of a person increasing in agitation and escalating.

I found focus on mental intelligence and being aware of your surroundings, due to the heightened risks with a position in that environment.

Hope this helps 🙂
