  • Hi, I'm Liam. I'm a clinical nurse educator

  • and I'm here to talk to you about the interview process

  • for a nursing support care worker.

  • I will ask you some common interview questions

  • and I recommend that you pause the video after each one

  • and think about how you'd respond.

  • Say your answers out loud as if you were in a real interview process.

  • You can even record yourself on a phone or a webcam

  • so you can watch it back to learn where to improve.

  • I'll finish up by giving you some tips on what I'd expect to hear

  • during a successful interview.

  • Let's get started.

  • What made you choose this as a career?

  • How would you define good work ethics?

  • What is your biggest accomplishment?

  • Can you give me an example of a time that you worked as part of a team?

  • Have you ever had conflict in the workplace?

  • How did you handle it?

  • Do you understand the importance of documentation?

  • Why do we document?

  • Why do you think you will do well in this job?

  • What motivates you to be the best you can be at work?

  • What would you see as a good indicator that you were doing well in the role?

  • Finally, do you have any questions for me?

  • Nursing support care workers in a hospital setting

  • are a real key, essential part of the day to day workings

  • of the clinical environment.

  • and they're a really key part of the multidisciplinary team

  • and it's essential that candidates come along with

  • good work ethics and a positive attitude

  • to deliver safe and effective nursing care.

  • As you prepare for your interview

  • it's essential that you think about some examples that you can provide on the day.

  • You can draw upon some experiences you may have had in a clinical practice setting

  • or you may draw upon some personal experiences.

  • It's essential you provide a structure to your answers

  • and always make sure that you focus on the patient element of the answer.

  • So conflict resolution is a key component of the nursing profession

  • we do face it on most days

  • and...

  • we expect from candidates to demonstrate that they're able to communicate effectively

  • with their peers, their colleagues, patients, staff

  • and family and friends.

  • My tip would be focusing on communication

  • trying to deescalate the situation in a polite, respectful manner

  • in accordance with the organisational values.

  • Documentation is a critical component of being a healthcare practitioner.

  • It's really essential for the relay of communication between each shift

  • and it often allows us to plan and prepare a patient's daily care needs.

  • So effective communication and documentation is an essential skill

  • that the interview panel will often look for.

  • As you prepare for your interview it's really important that you

  • decide what you're going to wear so that you present yourself in a professional manner.

  • Be early. Arrive 15-20 minute prior to the interview

  • and take some time to settle in and calm the nerves.
