    CONGRATS on your interviews! Were there a lot of clinical case scenario questions? Or was it mostly behavioral?
  2. Hello all, I just had an interview today, and I remembered some of the questions that were asked of me, and I want to know how best to answer these questions. Any help would be appreciated, as I have an interview coming up with my dream hospital on a telemetry unit and I want to make sure I answer the questions correctly, and I'm unable to get feedback from the interviewers for these specific questions. Again, any help would be deeply appreciated. I really want to get this job and I know these questions are my weak point. 1) A patient has been in bed for two weeks and you find he has a RR of 40 and SOB, what do you anticipate, what nursing actions do you perform? I made the mistake of saying check s/s for sepsis, but now I feel like the right answer is raise HOB, provide 02, check lung sounds, and anticipate PE. is this correct? 2) You see a nurse putting a patient's life in jeopardy, what do you do? I said that you would remain with the patient and call for help, assess the patient and make sure he is not in danger anymore and wait for help to arrive. 3) Patient is receiving morphine and you come to find him barely responsive, how do you proceed? For this question I put assess the patient, and anticipate administering narcan. 4) Doctor has a patient with a lasix order and an order for an IV bag NS, what do you do? I said to question the order as this is a contraindicated in a patient who requires lasix. 5) You have two patients, one has a BP of 70/40 and toe other is having a reaction to a blood transfusion, how do you prioritize? this was the trickiest question for me, and I said call for help, stop the blood transfusion, make sure the patient is stable and go check on the BP patient. I'm not sure how to answer these questions in a way that shows my critical thinking skills. Thank you all for your help, I want to do well on this upcoming interview but I'm not sure how to proceed with these tricky questions.

    I don’t think so! My friends hasn’t changed either but another friend of mine had already received a rejection letter, so Let’s stay positive! I contacted talent acquisition and they said they don’t give out hiring manager info but if we want updates we can contact Nazly Kaufman, she’s the recruiter.
  4. I have not heard anything yet. Has anyone reached out to HR?

    I'm thinking of maybe reaching out to the recruiter tomorrow to get some info. I'll update on this forum if I reach anyone.

    has anyone gotten an update on the Orthopedics floor med-surg position? The rest were oncology that changed to med-surg but there is one Ortho position that I'm wondering about.

    A friend of mine got a rejection email from the med-surg position so I think it's safe to say they are still sorting it out 🙂 ! Good luck to us ❤️

    I've noticed the positions that previously said Oncology are all under Med-Surg now.

    there were two tele positions that opened, one a few days ago and one that was open just yesterday and closed yesterday. I think this might've been in regards to the one from few days ago, but I have no idea. Their new grad program isn't really a cohort I don't think it's just specific to unit I'm assuming.

    WOW! really? Is this for the tele position that was open for like a day last week? I wonder if it's a single hire per position
  15. I haven't heard anything yet. I've made a new Allnurses forum for the Northridge Fall 2020 cohort. There are more updates there!

    Me too! Has anyone’s status changed at all? I wonder when they will start the next phase of the app process!
