Hi, new nurse here, looking for my first job. I had interview at a hospital I would really love work at. I think the interview went well. They asked basic interview questions. I got a call for a second interview , also to be given a chance to meet some of the other nurses. any suggestions or advice? what happens during a second interview? Ive had a few interviews already so I am getting better at calming the nerves, just wonder what they might ask. The position is for med surg by the way.

Thinking you didn't get comments because, the meaning of a "second" interview depends on the facility.

Of course, getting a second interview means they are very interested in you. You could ask what it entails. It could be a group interview, or a tour of the unit. Either way, smile and nod... smile and nod. Business casual attire.

Good luck! Let us know how it went.

2nd interviews are usually situational questions. They will give scenario and you have to say what interventions you will do from the beginning up to the end. I usually get a panel interviewee or at least 2 person asking set of questions. Be prepared as it typically last at least 30 mins. Good luck!
