    I ended up not going with that job. But it was like a bridge program, where you start off as a grad nurse and at the end of the program you're on your own as a RN! Most places ask the same questions. Things such asescribe yourself in 3 wordsGive specific example of how you dealt with a difficult situation/ went above and beyond for someone/dealt with family members/difficult co-workers, etcWhy do you want to work here?When I was on my interview, I was given a tour of the unit and we ran into a long term pt, a little girl. She was on her way to the play room with the assistance of two nurses. When she got closer to me, she left go of one of the nurses hand and grabbed mine! And we walked her the rest of the way. I will never forget that. Even though she was very sick, she is still first of all, a child, innocent and she wanted to play, lol! Remember that, they're still kids and usually we're more scared then them. Oh and this was Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit, Mi.

    Hello msherril85!I'm a senior nursing student & I'm doing my practicum at Children's Hospital on a hematology/oncology unit and I ran into your post! I was wondering what kinds of things you saw on your unit & if there's anything in particular that you didn't expect? I'm a bit nervous because throughout all my clinicals we've never worked with patients who had cancer, let alone children with cancer! But I think it will be a wonderful learning experience.I was also wondering if you were offered a job after the new grad program? What type of questions did they end up asking you? I'd love to apply for it! Was this the Children's Hospital in Boston? Sorry to bombard you with questions but I'm very curious Thank you!

    I took the NCLEX for the 2nd time on the 12th. I waited to do the trick the following morning because I didn't want to spend all night crying if I had failed AGAIN! I did the trick and got the new popup...I had never heard of this one and I am still kinda freaked out waiting to see if I officially passed or not.

    Thank you! I'll definitely try to slow down and breath because I know I get myself worked up and start talking extra fast.

    I have a last minute, unexpected interview tomorrow morning. I was originally put on a waiting list for the fall but then was told there was an additional opening so now I am going in for my second interview. The interview is for a transitions RN residency program for new grads that begins in July. The job is at a children's hospital. This program is for 16 weeks and I will be working on the hematology, nephrology, urology, oncology unit. I am always super nervous whenever I have to interview for anything and always seem to draw a blank when asked questions. I am even more nervous because I am going to be interviewed by three individuals at once. Can anyone give me any advice as to what to expect as far as questions???

    Also, I never seem to know what questions to ask an employer because they always seem to answer all of my questions during the interview process. But I know that it is always good to ask questions!

    Thank you both SO very much that not only helps with that problem but with so many more. I'm learning to ignore all of the extra info that is given and only focus on what the question is asking for. Thanks again!

    I have the HARDEST time with drug calculations. So if anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it! I am doing good so far on most questions but on the following it's not clicking.

    Infuse Ancef 1G/50mL IVPB q6h. The label tells you to run in over 15 minutes. What rate will you set on the IV pump? ml/hr

    I know I need to divide 50ml/1G, but should I convert G to mg? and do I multiply that by 60min/1hr?
