  • RN Interview Tips & Advice

The nursing field offers you many opportunities to push yourself to excel in professional development while serving the needs of your patients. It is a demanding field, starting with rigorous classes and landing at your preferred workplace. To get into the hospital, nursing home, or skilled nursing facility within a continuing care retirement community of your choice, you need to be savvy about your interview techniques. Interviewing for a position can be almost as unnerving as your clinicals were in college, but it doesn’t have to be that way. 

Tips and Advice to Keep in Mind Before Your RN Interview 

Now that you have an eagerly anticipated interview scheduled, use these tips to go in with confidence and win over your interviewers:

  1. Research the Healthcare Organization. You should already have started this process when you decided to apply for a job. Now, take it a step further and look over their website, blog, social profiles, and any other published content you can find that helps you learn more about the organization. Get to know their mission and values. Research their history and other facts about the facility.
  2. Practice Answering Interview Questions. You can easily find common interview questions. Use them to practice sitting, looking someone in the eye, and answering articulately. Prepare thoughtful answers for anticipated questions but be spontaneous in the interview.
  3. Know Your Resume. It’s likely that you may be a little nervous, and not only is that understandable, but it is also a good thing. It helps you stay focused. It’s important that you know and can remember everything you’ve mentioned in your resume. Take a printed copy for yourself and for the interviewers but offer it only if they ask for it. 
  4. Dress for Success. As a professional, you should dress the part and wear suitable clothing. Accessorize as necessary but nothing too distracting. If you are going straight from work, you can ask if it would be appropriate for you to wear your scrubs or if you should change in advance.
  5. Most of All, Be Yourself. Nurses must constantly interact with administration, staff, and patients while on the job. If you fake your way through the interview and land the job, you will be quickly found out. So, smile, engage others and let them see your caring nature.
