    10 Toughest Nursing Interview Questions (Part 3)

    Here is another interview tecnique: The VA uses PBI Interview Questions like Describe a situation in which you had to use your communication skills in presenting complex information. How did you determine whether your message was received? (With the original question you are assuming the person did understand.) Share with me an example of an important personal goal that you set, and explain how you accomplished it. Lead me through a decision-making process on a major project you've completed. Have you ever had many different tasks given to you at the same time? How did you manage these? Give an example of a time you had to make a difficult decision. From Performance Based Interview (PBI) introduction - Performance Based Interviewing (PBI) Answering these questions really helps in any interview, because you can use them to, "Tell a story" about yourself, which makes you more memorable too!

    Public Humiliation In Healthcare

    There are over 600,000 allnurses members....just think, if we truly banded together, oh the things we could change!
  9. Yep, I am one of those new grads that became a stale old grad. I was always their second choice, because their first choice had experiene. It has been and still is VERY frustrating. Oh and if you are a new grad and that first job does not work out, then you a not considered a new grad anymore...even though you tecnically have not had enough experience to get a staff nurse position. Nothing like being stuck in nowhere land!!! All those years it took me to get my BSN....and I am now not working as a Nurse.

    How To Spot a Workplace Bully, Part Two

    Our clinic has not had a nurse manager or medical director for many many months. It has been horrible and getting so bad that all of us are taking stress leaves. I believe we are experiencing bullying from administrative director who fails to do anything about anything. Thank you for this information.
