Buddy's right. And if you are too nervous, don't worry about letting them know. Mention it's your first interview in years and that this is a job you really want!

HI SARA. I THINK IT'S NORMAL TO BE NERVOUS ABOUT AN INTERVIEW. BE YOURSELF AND THINK POSITIVE, AND CONFIDENT IN WHAT YOU KNOW YOUCAN DO! BEST OF LUCK

Thank you! I think this dumb interview book is getting me worked up. I was OK before I started reading and now I feel like I am taking a final I just started studying for today. I will make sure to relax (maybe some yoga) tonight. It is for a position is Labor and Delivery. It is the only job avaliable for L&D in a 100 mile radius and they aren't keen on hiring new grads. I figure an interview is the first step in the right direction though. Thanks again for the positive thoughts!

Sara, congrats on becoming a nurse. you did a lot of work to get here. I get both frustrated & rewarded in nursing, but more rewarded than anything. When you go for the interview, be well groomed and confident. That says a lot for a person. Ask questions about their facility(do they do 12 hour shifts, computerized charting, floating,mentoring program...how long,etc). think of ways that they will benefit from your work...friendly, willing to learn, special interest in pediatrics etc, want to get your certificate in geriatrics, etc. It is okay to tell your strengths & weaknesses & your willingness to learn...computerized charting, hospice, etc.
Good luck. Relax & enjoy your time in nursing.

First....try to calm down.

They know you're a new grad, right? They're not looking for experience, they're looking for someone that has their head on straight!! Dress nice, good posture, all that stuff....and just try to project confidence. If you don't know the answer, admit to it!

Good luck, and let us know how it goes! I'll keep you in my toughts and prayers!!

What kind of position is it?

Hi Sara! Congratulations on completing your nursing program. As a nurse of a few years I can appreciate the hard work that went into completing your training. (I've always said that if I had know how hard nursing school was before I started I would've pcked something else!) As for your interview... show confidence in the skills you've attained in school, and a willingness to learn more and become a vital part of the team, and honor the fine profession of nursing. Best of luck...and let me know how things go!

I am graduating from nursing school in May. Tomorrow is my first interview and it is for a job I actually really want. I almost wish I had one to practice on first since I haven't been to a job interview in probably 3 years. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions about interviews in health care or even just in general?
