I'm not a nurse yet, but I am 51 years old and I've been to a fair amount of interviews. Treat this one as such rather than thinking you are giving away your dream job. Be yourself, make good eye contact, listen intently and don't be afraid to be assertive. I've had four children of my own and have assisted in the births of 21 friends by teaching them Lamaze and working with them while they labored. The best nurses were the ones who were there for us. The ones who didn't just want to give an epidural and move on. They encouraged and helped me us have the birth experience we wanted to have. They stayed past their appointed shifts to see us through to the end because they didn't want to turn us over to a stranger. Be THAT person. Be level headed because although bringing a life into the world is an amazing thing most of the time, it's not always that way. Some days are really hard. You may have to see a mother thorough the agonizing experience of the loss of a child, or through having their child go septic (it happened to me). Be strong and able. I wish you well and wish I were in your position right now. It's one of the things I hope someday to do as well.:redpinkhe
