Upcoming oncology opportunity for new grad!!!

Pielęgniarka8 Pielęgniarka8 (Member)

Hi everyone! I have an upcoming interview on an oncology unit with the unit manager and floor nurses and need some advice. I am a new grad and don't have much experience under my belt. What kind of questions should I expect from either the unit manager or floor nurses? Will i expected to know how to answer specific oncology situations asked by the unit manager or will she be general? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!


Specializes in oncology. Has 2 years experience.

As a new grad, they'll probably ask you pretty general questions, which could include things like:

(1) Why do you want to work in nursing and more specifically on an oncology floor?

(2) What are your long-term career plans?

(3) Tell us about yourself.

(4) General questions regarding how you work with others, on teams, etc.

(5) Give an example of a time you worked in a stressful situation? -or- How do you deal with conflict in the workplace?

(6) How do you organize your work/time?

Those are some to get you started. You can also google "nursing interview questions" to find lists that folks have compiled. Good luck! I love working in oncology. :)

thanks so much for ur response! i actually had my interview yesterday and got the job :)
