Hi All!

This is my first post on AllNurses, so thank you for taking the time to look at my post!

I recently received an interview invitation from my top school, University of Arizona (YAY!!). Have any of you interviewed with UA in past years? If so, I would love to hear some tips. Advice does not need to be UA specific, but I was just seeing if there was any experience with UA’s interview process in particular.

I am specifically interested in their Integrative Health program in Gilbert.

Thank you in advance!

Sorry I have no experience, but I am wondering what your stats were?

I am located in Gilbert and I did not know they had a program out here. Do you have to take organic Chemistry or just the basic intro to chem?

I can tell you my interview experience with Pima Medical Institute for their RN program. They asked why I wanted to be a nurse, what was I going to do once I was a nurse to elevate the profession, what I thought a problem in nursing today was, and then a few behavioral/job interview style questions like what did you do when you had a conflict with a patient? (I was a CNA). Hopefully U of A has similar questions.

I would recommend calling the school and/or searching through their website to find out what is required as far as Chemistry courses go. It does take some time to find out, but their answer is more reliable.
