Student Nurse job- nursing home. Interview advice?
I have an interview on tuesday for a PSW position at a nursing home (for RN and RPN students) I have 3 yrs of experience in the BScN program and only first yr is required for this summer job. I took this last year off and am applying for reinstatement and am basically right now on the waiting list. My plan B is to fast track through the RPN program I'm going to mention all this to the interviewer as well as bring my letter of acceptance (to the RPN program) What type of questions could I expect? since this is really my first nursing job? everything else was community based. She also asked for 2 references. ( I have one from a Nursing tutor and one from an old vice principal [high school] who is a great member of the community and I have done tons of volunteering with) She seemed really interested as am I. I am staying positive I'm just a Little nervous that I did have the this year off and about the 'possible" switch. Advice please
