Quote from soccer
Has anyone had to do an interview, either in person or by phone, to get accempted into a nursing program? If so, what types of questions did they ask?
Yes, I had a personal interview and it was an interesting
experience. First off, I was complimented on my essay so it started off really well. She asked me why I wanted to be a nurse, what I thought nurses actually did,
and why I thought I'd be a good one. Then she asked me some situational questions like:
1. What would I do if I had a professional conflict with another nurse or a personal conflict? How would I handle it?
2. What would I do if a doctor gave me an order that I disagreed with.
So they were pretty tough questions! I have 2 friends that also interviewed (with a different staff member) and they weren't asked anything like these questions!
I guess my answers were satisfactory b/c I was accepted and start Jan 2007.
Best Wishes! :spin:
