John, a new graduate is interviewing for his first job as a new Registered Nurse.

  • John, a new graduate is interviewing for his first job as a new Registered Nurse. He already went through an interview with a recruiter and now has an appointment with the nurse manager in a pediatric unit. Some of the interview questions have made John very uncomfortable. Some of the questions pertain to dealing with parents when their children are dying, cultural beliefs, and treating HIV positive patients. John answers several of the questions with responses such as "it depends on the culture", "it depends on the situation", and "I don't discriminate, I treat everyone the same".

  1. What responses would have been more appropriate for an interview by a new graduate?
  2. What could John have done to be more prepared for this interview?
  3. How could John have used the questions to demonstrate any of his strengths, experiences and skills?
  4. Knowing that John was a new graduate, how could the nurse manager have interviewed John differently?
