Interviewing a new Manager

  1. I have been asked to be on a panel to interview a new director for our department. I work in a very busy emergency room and am a recent new grad (Dec 03) RN. I worked in this same ER for 5 years as an LVN. Our current director has resigned and we will be interviewing a few new candidates--all of whom have been co-workers at one time or another as either asst directors or NP's in my department. Makes for a somewhat uncomfortable situation... My question is in regards to some input on what would be good interview questions to ask. Any ideas? Help.............
