Here’s the FULL LIST of BAND 5 (NHS) NURSE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. Tell me about yourself and why you want to become a Band 5 Nurse with the NHS?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I am someone who takes great pride in my work as a nurse and working for the NHS is a privilege and an honour. There comes a huge amount of responsibility as a nurse within the NHS, and the qualities and skills needed to consistently perform to a high standard are the ones I feel I naturally possess. I am entirely dedicated to the nursing profession, can be relied upon to make the right decisions in the best interests of the patient, always take care of my own professional development so the treatment I provide is in line with the NHS values and code of conduct, and I can also be relied upon to maintain confidentiality at all times necessary. I am also a great team worker, will remain calm and composed under pressure, and have a personal life that enables me to be flexible in my role as a nurse and work additional shifts as and when needed to help out the team.”

Q2. Why do you want to work in the NHS for our Trust?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“This is a good question and one that I have considered carefully prior to applying for the role. During my research, I studied this NHS Trust in detail, and I especially paid attention to the values you expect your staff to abide by, and also the mission in which you are all striving to achieve. As a professional nurse, I am someone who takes great pride in my work, and the values of integrity, commitment to quality of care, continual learning, compassion and improving lives are also at the core of everything I do. I don’t want to be a nurse for just any organisation. I want to be a nurse for an organization that cares about people, wants to continually learn and improve and has an entirely inclusive way of operating. The values and ambitions your trust operate by are very closely aligned to my own, which is the main reason why I want to be a nurse for this NHS organisation.”

4 TIPS FOR PASSING YOUR NHS BAND 5 NURSING/STAFF NURSE JOB INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – It is absolutely crucial you gain a thorough understanding of the core values the NHS Trust you are applying to become a Band 5 Nurse with, operate by. The majority of candidates who attend Band 5 Nursing interviews can answer competency and technical interview questions, but they are not aware of the core NHS Trust values and, more importantly, how these will impact on their daily work. During your research for this NHS nursing interview, make sure you study the values and also be aware of the mission the trust is aiming to achieve.

TIP #2 – Continuing on from the tip in number one above, we also recommend you think of a situation you have been in where you have already demonstrated each of the six core NHS values. These are compassion, working together, improving lives, commitment to quality of care, everyone counts and also respect and dignity. When structuring your answers to questions based around specific situations you have been in, we recommend you utilise the STAR technique as this will ensure you score highly during your NHS Band 5 Nursing interview!

TIP #3 – Whilst you will most probably already have a good working knowledge of the following subjects, we recommend you brush up your competence and understanding of Safeguarding, Clinical Governance, Infection Control and also confidentiality. There will undoubtedly be questions that arise around these subjects at some stage during your interview.

TIP #4 – Those applicants who pass their NHS Band 5 Nursing interview will go all out to provide EVIDENCE of where they meet the key requirements of the role. During your preparation for the interview, make sure you obtain a copy of the job description and the person specification for the role. We then recommend you think of specific examples you have been in where you meet each of the essential criteria for the post.
