    They often ask scenario-based questions about "what woud you do in this situation". Or, "tell me about a time where your two coworkers had a disagreement and you had to settle it"... etc etc. Also, there is the oldie-but-goodie, where do you see yourself in five years.

    1. Define your strengths and weaknesses - usually 3 of each.

    2. Will ask your how to do certain basic procedures.

    3. Why do you want to work here?

    4. Describe how you are a team player

    5. Anything preventing you from making it to work

    6. How you would deal with difficult situations
    Including management of difficult residents

    7. How you manage stress?

    Just a few that come to mind. Good luck!

    They just asked me some basic questions like about my experience, time I am willing to work, they also asked me how you handle abuse, nothing special related to nursing.
