Hi everyone,

Im a peds ED nurse and was granted an interview in L&D! Clearly unexpected since everyone wants experience. What type of questions should I expect for this interview? I'm really nervous about this especially since the only L&D exposure I've had was in nursing school. Thanks in advance

Absolutely. My interview was a panel interview that consisted of the UD, CNE, and 2 L&D nurses. They each asked 1-2 questions. Since I had NO labor and delivery experience, it was your basic behavioral type questions. Name a time when you went above and beyond, how do u deal with patients from different cultures, why that specific hospital, why labor and delivery, my thoughts on teamwork. I think I sold them on that one!! Nothing clinical related. Interview lasted about 30 minutes. Got the call about 5 minutes after the interview and was offered the job!! Just go in there and be yourself. You know how these things go. It’s all about fitting into their culture! Good luck and let me know how it goes!! I’m rooting for ya

Thank you for asking! It went very well and they offered me the job. Unfortunately the pay was too much of a drop for me to accept at this point in my life so no L&D for me right now, but maybe in the future...
