    I work for Virtua, the only thing that I think is really important to know is that you need to pass the PBDS test, they will give you a brochure on it at the interview.

    I dont know any specifics that would help out, sorry.

    Performance Based Development System:
    you basically watch a video and "diagnosis" the pt and say what you would do as the nurse to treat the patient

    ie - this pt is having a MI I would ...... and then the reasons why you did what you did.
