Nursing Job Interview Secrets

With the desperate demand for nurses in the marketplace, you might think that a nursing job interview would be a piece of cake. You might imagine that you might just walk in, show your nursing certificate, verify that you are in deed a registered nurse and take whatever job you desire. And though it is true that nursing talent is very heavily sought-after and recruited in the marketplace, there are still some nursing jobs that are easier to get than others. Just like in every other field, there are more and less attractive positions. For the positions that offer a more attractive combination of pay, hours, duties and other benefits there will naturally be more competition than for the positions that offer a less attractive combination.

If you are invited to come to a nursing job interview for one of these more attractive jobs, it will be to your advantage to prepare for it in advance. Luckily for you, this is a relatively quick and easy process, especially for someone with an in demand skill set. What you want to do before your nursing job interview is to discover all that you can about the target job, anticipate the requirements of the job, predict the questions you will be asked, formulate convincing answers for those questions and practice those questions. Got all that? Donít worry, you can take it step by step. The first step is to learn everything you can about the job, beginning with the day-to-day duties. This information can be discovered by seeing the job description, but any other information that you can get, especially from people with personal experience in the job will be helpful.

This research should give you a clear idea of what the interviewer will be looking for in the nursing job interview. Create a list of the top ten or fifteen elements that the interviewer will look for, including experience, training, achievements, and personal characteristics. You can bet that the interviewer will ask you questions designed to elicit information about whether or not you have these elements. To convince him or her that you do, your strategy should be to use your experience, training and life history to create convincing stories that demonstrate all of these elements to the interviewer.

When you have some stories, with situations, actions and results that demonstrate the target elements, itís time to practice. Get a friend to ask you those questions and practice responding in a natural and unforced way that leads to the stories you have developed. Donít feel bad if it takes a while to get comfortable. Though it may feel a bit strange to launch into these stories, after you have done it a few times you will get the hang of it, and see how much more convincing these types of answers are than simple yes and no responses. After a couple of practice session, you should be able to go into any job interview with complete confidence in your ability to handle any question that interviewer throws at you.
