  1. I want to start out as a Licensed Vocational Nurse before I settle into becoming a registered nurse to see if I am fit for the nursing career field.

  2. I’ve interviewed quite a few nurses at this point. This is what I’ve learned: If you’re a new grad, don’t pretend you know more than you know. Clinical rotations are great, but it’s not the same as being a nurse out in the world with your own practice. It’s ok to talk about being new, but demonstrate that you know how to find the answers and that you’re not afraid to ask for support (because you will need help from you’re colleagues, doesn’t matter if you’re new or 40 years in). If you have a job that you are planning to leave… let us know. We turned down a great candidate because she was working full time and was interviewing for a part time position but only said she was hoping to make the two jobs work, not that she was hoping to leave her current position. Spell check your resume and make sure your dates are correct for your job experience etc. Be able to tell us why there are gaps in your resume. Prepare a few questions you may want to ask (but avoid anything you could have found on the company website etc.). Keep in mind there are typically a few people present for your interview. Take your time, breathe and ask people to repeat if you need them to (so you don’t go on a nervous tangent answering the wrong question because you didn’t understand). Good luck!!!!!

  4. For you male nurses…you will get the interviewers theory on "men in nursing" when you hear that statement, you are even more behind the 8 ball than just the fact you're a man. You might get the job offer, but you better know that they already have you pigeonholed. Getting a job in the real world for a man in nursing, isn't too far from what you experienced in nursing school, so you're already prepared for that. Just remember when they're smiling at you, and being "nursy, wursy" to you, they are looking at you with a skepticism because you're a dude (gay males don't experience this as much, they are considered one of the girls) but even they are put on a pecking order.

    Some of the questions.."How do you feel about working with women"…(already puts you in a position that you're a sexist, or a predator, or some boorish oaf who can't be a professional)..if you get asked that, ask her right back.."do you ask women that question"? or "What's next, how do I feel about working with gays, blacks, hispanics, handicapped, one-eye lumber jacks? If the interviewer is going down that road, you have nothing to lose, because if this is their HR person that's sexist, you're not going to get treated fairly in any other contact with them.

    I could tell some pretty cool stories that I experienced being interviewed. "We already have a male in OB/Peds" and many others. It's kind of fun when you turn it back on them, the only problem is a couple of those jobs I really wanted. Once you find a job where they don't dog you for being a dude, KEEP IT!! There are still plenty of women who don't want you in their field, and you definitely won't find special scholarships to get you into nursing school, or lowered grades and there's no punishment for discrimination against men by women in this field (or any other) and there's never going to be an Oprah show about it, or a Dr. Phil show about it..so don't worry about complaining, just move on. Good luck and I hope things have changed for dudes since the mid 90's when I was out there looking. In fact I got a good paying job before I passed the NCLEX in 1995, in the prison, because women didn't want to work there, so they hired dudes..it paid better, but it was still prison. They didn't hire men in hospitals back then, unless you had connections.

  11. I have a video interview but it’s differently set up because I have to record myself answer questions that will be put on the screen. I feel like it will be awkward talking to the camera with no one to give me feedback. Thank you for the advice!

  15. I don’t know what state this is in but $23 hr for a new grad nurse is nothing. That’s how much new grad LVN’s make her in CA

  16. Nowadays, hospitals are hiring new graduates over experience nurses and the main reason is $$$. After six interviews I went through at a particular hospital, I spoke to the recruiter, and I was told off the record, that with my age & experience I will make a $50+ USD per hour and with that salary the hospital could hire two brand new nurses.

  21. As a nurse not only do they ask first question “ are you over 40” and race on application. I’ve been on numerous interviews I’ve been asked immediately if I was married and had kids. Not sure if this is legal in NY but I’ve encountered the age question the married quest all the time and I was not hired.

  35. I don't think there are any nursing shortages. I have applied and applied and haven't got any positive news. I think it's just a propoganda for the schools to make money by saying that there is a nursing shortage and for the hospitals to have a monoply

  36. Nowadays it's hard to get a job as a new grad nurse. I interviewed at memorial herman and i said all the right things and the clinical manager was impressed but it wasnt good enough to get a job. The big hospitals dont give you feedback that's why lm going for HCA because they're actually willing and looking to hire people . Also GPA doesn't mean anything so if you think a 4.0 guarantees you a job think again. I graduated magna cum laude and still looking for jobs.
