I have an interview coming up for a new grad residency in the O.R. I'm so excited and nervous because the O.R is my dream. Besides the usual 'what are your strengths/weaknesses, why do you want to work here' what can I expect from the interview questions? Do you think they will ask me specific questions about the O.R? The general getting to know you questions I am fine with but the scenario based questions I'm nervous about since I do not have any experience in the O.R besides clinicals.

Us OR peeps know that a new grad has no or at best very limited OR knowledge, and I’ve never been in an interview (as interviewee or interviewer) where situation questions specific to the OR were asked of a new grad. There have been questions of what interests you about OR nursing and what experiences did you have in school, but that’s it.

Thank you. I figured that they wouldn't go too in detail with the scenario based questions for someone that has no previous experiences. I know that the training in it self is a whole different ball game than other specialties.
