Nurse interview

  1. Hi! I need to interview a nurse for an intro to nursing course. If someone could answer the following questions and upload a picture of themselves it'd be a huge help!

    1. Where do you work?
    2. Type of practice? (Hospital, school, etc)
    3. Educational background
    4. What's a typical workday like for you?
    5. Do you participate in any nursing organizations?
    6. What do you like most about nursing?
    7. What would you like to change about the field of nursing?
    8. Any advice for a nursing student/ future nurse?

    Maddie, we get this kind of request about 5 times a week. You may or may not get an answer. The person answering may be a nurse or may be masquerading as a nurse. Pretty sure the spirit of the assignment is a face-to-face with an actual nurse. People here kind of bristle at these types of requests. There are plenty of places where you can have a real conversation with a real person. We'd be glad to help you figure out where because you might not know and that's okay. Mine might be the kindest response you get.

    This nearly takes the cake for the 'upload a picture of yourself' request/requirement, though!

    I was thinking about doing that. One of me without a shirt at the beach, zinc oxide on my nose, and sporting my Dallas Cowboys Speedo.

    I can't think of a nice response without saying this part borders on weird. Most of your questions can be answered by reading some posts here. I agree with Wuzzie, the assignment I am sure is for a face to face interview.

    What the heck? My quote feature did not turn out quite right? Darn work computer!

    Shoot, I didn't even see the "upload a picture" part. That's asking for trouble.

    You can fix it by making sure both ends of the quote brackets are complete.

    You can even have someone say something they've never said;

    2. Type of practice? (Hospital, school, etc)
    Well, it's a big building with lots of patients, so yeah, I'd say it was an etc.

    3. Educational background
    Associate's degree. I started in January of 1976 and finished in May of 1990.

    That is the honest-to-God's truth of what it says on my transcript. Yes, ladies and gentlemen (except you, OldDude) it took me 14 years to complete a two year program at LCCC-Larry & Curly Community College! (I was in the accelerated program.)

    4. What's a typical workday like for you?
    I work nights.

    5. Do you participate in any nursing organizations?
    It's like Groucho Marx said, "I wouldn't want to participate in any nursing organization that would have me as a member".
    Quote from Maddiegirl3
    6. What do you like most about nursing?
    Oh, a lot of things. Or, to be more specific, a lot of stuff.
    Quote from Maddiegirl3
    7. What would you like to change about the field of nursing?
    What would I like to change in the field of nursing? Change takes dedication, commitment, and hard work! I'd like to change that. Make change easier.

    8. Any advice for a nursing student/ future nurse?
    Just being courteous will open many doors for you.

    But not as many as those automatic door openers.
