The Job Interview Initial interviews are frequently with the nurse recruiter The nurse manager conducts another interview and may include nursing staff Prepare for the interview by making a self- assessment of your abilities, your strong points, and your challenges

16 16 Copyright © 2011 by Mosby, Inc., an affiliate of Elsevier Inc. Guidelines for Interviews The manager should not make promises that cannot be kept The manager should not ask anything the law prohibits from being considered in making a decision. Example: Do not ask about an applicant's race or religion, because you are not allowed to consider these factors in making your decision Do not panic if an applicant raises a delicate subjectsuch as disability or national origin. You cannot raise such subjects, but the applicant can.
