Band 6 position

I am currently working on a secondment in orthopaedic outpatients as a band 5 staff nurse. I am otherwise based on an orthopaedic trauma ward. There is going to be a band 6 job coming up full time in outpatients and I have been encouraged to go for the position.

I would really like this job but feel I have a lot of preparation to do for the up and coming interview. Can you advise me where to start, what information will they expect me to know?

Answer:

You should find out as much as you can about the Outpatients Department and then you should expect questions which will be probing your experience, skills and knowledge .... in other words your suitability for the job. They are most likely to ask the following:
'What do you know about Hospital Policy?'
'Are you up to date with PREP?'
'How do you see your career developing in a few years time?'
Then they may give an example of a typical (emergency) situation and ask you how youwould handle it.
They might ask you 'Describe a problem in your last job.'which is lovely question because it gives you the opportunity to describe a problem which you solved ... thus proving how good you are!
