Patient Sitter Interview


Hi everyone, I hope this is the best place to post this. I just got my CNA certification and my local hospital likes to hire patient sitters first before you can transfer into a CNA position. So I got an interview for a patient sitter position and I'm looking for some tips for the interview.

Should I dress like I would for any other non-healthcare interview? Any tips for what they might be looking for in a candidate? What kind of questions they might ask?

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer. It's so hard to even get an interview around here so I want to nail it and get the job!

Yes, dress like you would any interview. I've been asked things like why should we pick you, what are your future plans, tell us a little something about your self, what is your worst quality ect.

Good luck with your interview. :)

Modest clothing, hair pulled back, NO NAIL POLISH, closed toe shoes. Be yourself :)

One of the most important things you can do to prepare for your first interview is to know yourself: Why did you choose a career in nursing? What do you like most and least about it? Where do you see yourself in the future? How do you usually handle stressful situations? How do you deal with difficult people? What makes you a great candidate for this position? Practice discussing some of these questions with a friend or family member.

Invest in a classy, classic outfit that you can wear for years to come, not a trendy outfit job-interview Know the organization's policy on tattoos and piercings and dress accordingly.Wearing your hair up newaylook will also make you seem more credible.
