Interview

  1. Hi

    I have recently completed my Bachelors in nz and have been applying for graduate programs. I have attended one interview, it was behavioral based quests as well as i had to enact a surgical scenario where 25 years old female was admitted into ward after laproscopy with nausea and abdomen pain. While enacting the scenario i did assess her for pain( c/o 8/10) on the pain scale, checked her temp which was 36.1, checked the wound site (was slight oozing) and her BP was 88. So i asked her whether she was drinking enough water, and she said no so i asked her to increase her water intake as her bp was low and she could be dehydrated. I also checked her drug chart she was charted with morphine was not administered so i gave it to her after checking her identity bracelet. and told her it might take sometime to help in reducing the pain, but if the pain doesnt get better she could call the bell and i will ask the doctor to review her. I also told her that anyhow i will call the doctor and request him to chart fluids for her so that it can help her with keeping her hydrated. But during the scenario i forgot to enact and show the panel how i would communicate with the doctor, I am worried would this go against me??? coz i was nervous!!! Also i panicked at the end while i was keeping my file in my bag coz the charge nurse was looking at me.. so i just mumbled to myself saying i will do this later LOL.. I havent heard any thing back from them, it has only been 3 days now though.. But i did send the grad prog coord thanking her for giving me an opportunity and requested a feedback from her so that i could improve on my weaknesses.. but i havnt heard anything back from her either!! I know she could be busy with the orientation week for the 1st group of new grads who started on monday..

    I am just wondering would me getting panicky at the end or not calling the doctor during the scenario go against me.Also i forgot to check the heart rate and respirations while checking her for vital signs!!! Please someone tell me if these would go against me!

    Breath...
    We are currently finishing this week interviewing potential grads...we have been interviewing for 5 weeks. Dozens of people interviewing and now the grad coordinator is literally going through the piles of paper. Admittedly we are a little different as we use computer match but please realise that there are many steps in the process and the grad coocoordinator has probably a million emails that require a response not just an American habit of sending a thank you email that would probably go straight to the delete folder this time of year just to clear the inbox.

    Also the grad coordinator is still managing this current batch of grads who are still here.

    Be patient and try to recall when you were told you would be informed. I'd bet it wasn't 3 days... reference checks etc. Can take ages as this is the most important thing in the world for you it is not for everyone else in the process.

    yes i understand that K+! I was just a bit anxious coz they havent given me a time as this was a talent pool round. As in for the candidates who couldnt make it throught the comp match process. And the next intake starts on 11sept thats y i was being anxious.
    And it cud have been much better to tell me whether someone wud b judged on small things .. becoz my quest was abt that!

    You are measured on the whole interview. Each question has a % therefore what you missed is a tiny part of your overall mark.

    Please also do not use text speak it is against TOS.
