My experience with interviewing with the NICU was mainly situational questions (very average), if you went through the video interview the questions are similar. My manager basically looked at my resume and asked questions based on my answer. Research the institution (mission statement) and the unit you’ll be on. Make sure you ask questions at the end, there are tons of YouTube videos about nursing interviews that give great examples. For shadowing, it’s important to show that you’ll be able to work as apart of the team. Offer your help with whatever you can do (calming a crying baby, talk with family about their baby) and ask question!! Whether it be about the staff (how long have you been in the NICU, what do you love about it, what did you find difficult about the transition, etc) or ask about the babies (their diagnoses, how they usually handle caring for that baby, what diagnoses they usually see on the floor, etc).
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable! I start next week and I’m so excited about it, the unit is incredible from the staff to the patients and their families.
