Here’s the FULL LIST of NURSING INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. Tell me about yourself and why you think you’ll make a competent Nurse?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“First and foremost, I am totally dedicated to patient care and find this element of the role the most rewarding. I am naturally a caring person and enjoy being in a role where I get the opportunity to make a difference through both the treatment and care I provide, and also through educating patients to lead better lives. I will make a competent nurse because I am thorough in both my approach to care and assessment, I am able to follow strict rules and procedures, I have a passion to continually learn and develop and I am also someone who can work hard under pressure and respond positively to the challenges the nursing role presents itself. I feel confident that, if you employ me within this nursing position, you will be impressed with my strong work ethics and my ability to contribute positively to the nursing team.”

Q2. How do you handle the stress of being a Nurse and all that comes with the job?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“The first aspect of dealing with the stress of the nursing job is to understand exactly what is involved in the role, the environment you will be working in, and also the situation most patients will find themselves in. The nursing role requires you to work in a pressurized environment whereby people are often anxious and under stress based on their illness or their upcoming treatment. On that basis, you have to understand that people are not their normal self, and you have to take this into account when helping them, caring for them and also treating them. I naturally have a calm nature and I will not be put off by stressful situations whereby I have to perform under pressure. I can handle the stress of the job because I believe I am a strong communicator who has the confidence in my own abilities. The truth is, I would rather work in a pressurized and stressful environment because it is times like these where I can really put my skills and experiences to good use.”
