Who is asking? Are they for a job application, or are you being evaluated by somebody, or are you evaluating somebody?

Well, you've already demonstrated here that you can't do the first one. /snark

Here goes.

If the organization utilizes behavioral interviewing techniques, you will be asked questions designed to gather information about each criteria. Things like "Tell me about a time when you were faced with an ethical issue". The interviewer will expect you to respond with a story about your experience.... you can't put them off by offering vague comments like "I believe ethics are very important". Nope - they want specific examples.

So, if you just search your memory banks and come up with your own experiences that illustrate your ability to meet those criteria, you'll be OK. If you don't have any any relevant experience, just 'fess up and say so. Don't try to fake it.

Government nursing positions in Australia have selection criteria that is part of the application process. Applicants need to answer these criteria for the selection committee to to identify if you are qualified or not for the position. Then they will contact shortlisted applicants to undergo a panel interview. cheers!
