In the know: Sample questions for your interviews

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, February 15, 2010

If you're looking for a new nursing job, interviews are obviously a concern. When you start your interview process, you will first have to meet with the nurse recruiter or human resources manager. They will go over the generalities of the organization, the benefits, and information about the position for which you are interviewing. They will then ask you if you have any questions for them. You should be prepared to ask insightful questions. This is your chance to find out if this is the right job for you.

In addition to the title of the position, the salary range, the length of the orientation program, and the anticipated shift hours, you can ask:


  • How long have you been with the organization?
  • Why do you enjoy working for this organization?
  • How would you describe the philosophy of the organization?
