Research Nurse Interview Questions?


Hello all! I recently applied to a research nurse job at a fairly large hospital and I managed to get an interview! I was just wondering how I should prepare, outside of doing the normal research on the hospital values, mission statement, etc.

I'm really wondering if there are different types of questions for research nurse positions, outside of the typical behavioral questions? I'm also a new grad, so I'm very uncertain about what I would get asked since I have no prior experience outside of clinicals!

I am treating this interview as nothing more than practice, because I don't want to get my hopes up too high, but I would love some insight, if anyone has ever been in this boat, as a new grad interviewing for a research nurse position!

I worked for 2 years as a research nurse, and if I recall, I was asked behavioral interview questions. Of course, every facility will be different. They did not expect me to have research experience, so they didn't ask me any research-related questions.
