Looking for a nursing job ? … Prepare Your Interview … It’s Your Chance to Showcase your Skills

The nursing staff are perhaps the heartbeat of any healthcare institution. Their services are so critical that such establishments want to hire only the best nurses. One way of ascertaining this is through interviews for the job. The way you answer your interview questions will determine whether you will pass or fail the interview.  There are common interview questions that are always asked. A few are cited below to help you be more confident

 

Why do you want to work with us as a nurse?

Be specific and avoid generalities. If you have had previous experience or worked as a volunteer before, cared for someone at home , share the experience and explain how this has improved your skills and personalty.

You may be asked to tell the interviewers about yourself

Here, focus on your role and professional strengths related to the job. It is not about your personal life, your age or how much you love your pet.  If you have experienced any challenges and dealt with them positively, outline them and demonstrate how you overcame them to deliver great results.

Team work

A question or two about this will almost invariably come up. A good answer will point out that you are comfortable working as part of a bigger team and willing to learn from each member. However, when circumstances demand, you are still comfortable working alone without supervision by taking initiatives and own decisions when required.

Be Knowledgeable about the company you want to work for

The hiring company may ask you about why you would want to work for them.In this case, it is worth doing some homework and learn as much as you can about your future employer. know all the services they provide, what the company stands for , it mission and vision , if the company appeared on the news , it is a great idea to mentions this as this could mean a lot to the management team, follow them on social media so you show more interest . All this could help you stand out from your competition , at the of the day, you are not the only candidate sending a CV, remember.

About previous employer and relationship with the boss or manager

Avoid maligning the two. Talk about the learning and positive experiences you encountered there and how they helped you be a better nurse and a better professional . Avoid criticising your previous boss as your future boss could be one of them if you decide to leave the Job.

They could tell you if have any questions you want to ask ?

A common answer would be “No I am fine thanks” – It’s a no no answer , this will give a bad closing to the interview, there are two important parts in the interview, the beginning of the interview where you need to show a positive energy and motivation and the end (closing) of the interview where you want the recruiter remember you . Increase your chances of getting the job by asking clever questions, related to career development , training, flexibility and anything you did not understand from the job description.

 

In addition to the above, take other measures such as, dressing professionally , as a nurse you would be expected to, arriving early for the interview and remaining calm and confident (not arrogant) during the interview. One last thing , just be yourself , a nurse job is a work of heart as they say , so show your great personality and all the best in finding the best role .

Good Luck

In addition to recruiting and supplying staff to other home based healthcare providers, Secure Healthcare Solutions provide direct homecare services.

Housekeeping and housing support

House cleaning and all types of cleaning and other home chores can all be covered by a staff from Secure Healthcare Solutions who may do the actual job or arrange for it to be done by the right people. Payment of bills is also part of this service. Those who are still able to pursue hobbies and a social life benefit from the company’s trained assistants.

Personal care

Here the type of care is determined by the disability the patient has. The aim is however, one – to make the patient comfortable and to maintain their dignity. It entails personal hygiene, continence and other elimination matters. It also means making sure that supplies such as catheters, colostomy bags and other things that the patient may need are in stock and of the right quality.

Companionship

People who live alone may not necessarily be incapacitated by their health issues. However, loneliness can be just as bad. A friendly and professional companion from Secure Healthcare Solutions is always available whenever one is needed.

High dependency care

Here the patient needs near intensive care services. The services offered in this category are complicated and specialised. These are patients who may need respiratory support, tube feeding and intravenous medications or fluids. These are patients who may be having spinal or brain injuries. Others may be terminally ill and in need of round the clock palliative care. A skilled nurse from Secure Healthcare Solutions makes sure that such patients receive the best care possible and that all the doctor’s treatment orders are followed. These nurses also know the right questions to ask when necessary.

Live-in care

A person offering care on a continuing basis in a home considers many things. Secure Healthcare Solutions considers interests, hobbies, age and the type of disability of the client so that, the most appropriate staff is released to care for that patient. Where pets are involved, the staff’s attitude towards them is also considered. This guarantees a cordial co-existence between the carer and the client.

Respite care

Care giving can be stressful and with time burnout can result. When the care giver needs to be away for holiday or for other reasons, Secure Healthcare Solutions is ready to step-in and maintain the same care the client is used to.

Medication management

An aged patient, a mentally challenged person or a child can have difficulties in following prescribed drugs instructions. A qualified nurse is there to ascertain compliance and to prevent accidental over or under dosages. The nurse also makes sure that the medicines are kept safely and they are still potent and their expiry date is still far.

Home from hospital

Discharge from hospital can create new challenges for both patient and relatives. A Secure Healthcare Solution nurse makes sure that this transition is as smooth as possible. The nurse will arrange transport home after making all necessary clearance with the hospital. She will also make sure that all necessary equipment is available and will install what is needed by the patient at home. The homecare assistance will be tailored to meet the specific patient’s needs.

As family structure continues to evolve and homecare solutions continue to advance in various ways, people in need of specialised homecare will need more than old fashion type of assistance. The training offered by Secure Healthcare Solutions and the specific and direct homecare services it offers will become even more relevant. This is in view of the important role the company plays in the homebased healthcare industry that no individual carer can consistently match.
