Help! Interview Questions

  1. I am going for my interview soon and I am studying my interview questions. Can you guys help me
    with some answers? 1.) What is a weakness? 2.) what/when would you report to the principal? 3.) When would you report to CPS? 4.) What would you do if you seen a student attempting to buy drugs? 5.) What would you do if you seen students rough housing in the hall ways? 6.) why should we pick you (no school nursing experience) over someone else? 7.) What do you bring to the table or how would you be an assest to the district?

    Do you want to take a stab at answering these first, and we'll help refine the answers?

    #1. I just care too darned much.
    #6. See above.

    Perhaps think how you would respond to some actual medical emergencies.

    Anxiously awaiting your answers to the questions.

    I think these are good questions. Also consider a prioritization question. Such as...a coach comes in with chest pain, a kid is brought in by a teacher with an obvious fracture, and a kid comes in needing a breathing treatment. All in three minutes. What would you do???

    I love this...even though since I'm studying for the cert exam it immediately triggers a twinge of anxiety (i'm one of the testing anxiety crew)

    They will possibly ask you about how to deal with parents who don't want to pick their students up, and how to find local resources for students who need glasses, dental care, medical care, etc. Be familiar with screenings required at the grade levels at that school, as well as immunization requirements, and what to do if a student doesn't have the required immunizations.
