4. Quiz Yourself

While it’s hard to predict exactly what you’ll be asked during your job interview, there are a handful of questions that you should be prepared for. Don’t be caught off guard when you’re asked to talk about your past nursing experiences or specific cases. Be prepared to recall detailed examples of your accomplishments. Practice with a friend, or even in front of a mirror. Listen to yourself and how you phrase your answers. Practice makes perfect!

5. First Impression

At its core, a good nursing interview is really about making a positive first impression. All that dressing professionally, arriving on time, and coming prepared won’t matter if you seem arrogant and self-absorbed. Carry yourself with a confidence — your positive, professional attitude won’t go unnoticed. However, if you feel that the interview is going south, it doesn’t hurt to ask if it’s possible to reschedule. Be polite and considerate of the big favor you are asking of your interviewer. After all, the worst that could happen is you don’t get the job. Better luck next time!
